Definitely worth the trek from Kathmandu. Recommend staying overnight for a peaceful night’s rest, cooler temperature and wonderful experience. We are thankful to the Lama for allowing us to experience their daily life including prayer and meals.

A huge site but very welcoming and friendly with the monks young and old always busy. Fantastic views and a reasonable Cafe. Horrible road journey from Kathmandu so try to stay overnight locally.

Better known as Namo Buddha monastery, this beautiful spot is worth the long uphill climb from Dhulikel. Monks of all ages gather for worship in the shrine, morning and evening, and visitors are welcome to join them. No photos are allowed inside the shrine, which...More
