Good place to Hike
Feb. 2021
stunning place to explore around if you are in Kathmandu. If you are looking for small hike around the Kathmandu then this could be the best for you to explore around

This monastery is very peaceful and the great prayer hall is a sight to behold especially during the religious devotionals. A great monument to Tibetan Buddhism.

Calm and quite place...
Dec. 2019 • Couples
We visited the kopan monastery on our way back from the sleeping Vishnu temple ( Buddha nilkantha ) . It's a very quite place and that's how it should be. Serene beauty with a lot of things to learn about Buddhism here. If u are an adventure freak then this is not a place for you. This place is for those who want to take a step towards meditation and peace .

A plain café with a nice view and quite atmosphere
Dec. 2019
I haven't participated in any program at Kopan, but enjoyed their gardens and surroundings and browsed their library and shop. The café is a bar room with large windows with a nice view over the valley and villages outside the proper Kathmandu valley. Drinks are just fine, nothing special.
