“Peaceful and Good place to visit”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

This is my second visit and I was very happy with the environment which is serene and peaceful. The garden with two special stupas for the great teachers who had left us. The rooms are still in good condition with free meals. Recommend for Buddhists to stay in Kopan Monastery

“Getting peace near Kathmandu”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Kopan Monastery is must to visit in Kathmandu. You can organise couple of hours visit, or to stay there for different courses, or just to stay there for peace and meditation. I was taking meditation classes in Jun 2013, and have visited Kopan Monastery many times before and after. It is one of the best places not far from downtown where you can found your peace, and in the same time with amazing view on the city, to mediate, or simply to walk around.
