Waking up at 5am and walking to the Monestary to experience the morning chanting will stay with me forever. It doesn't matter what religion you follow, I am not a Buddhist but this experience was special. Don't expect a museum because it's not, it's a...More

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.

The bus ride up to the monastery is an adventure, especially the final stretch when the bus grinds its way through the sandy and dusty dirt road. The monastery sits on top of a mountain and has a new guest house. Stunning views in all...More

You can't change the weather, so you just appreciate whatever you see for what it is. I think there may have been a great view, but not sure! The cafe there has some good food and is reasonably priced.

I actually spent three nights/two and a half days at the monastery as part of a tour. My first thought, as a person with no religious adherence, that this would bore me, but I had a great time. Our group had two guides for our...More
