Its on hike. And very calm place. Good panorama. As we visited in rainy season, there was a very good view of another monastery nearby disappearing in clouds.

Having tried the 10 days meditation retreat is a must for everybody who try to seek the earliest introduction to Tibetan Buddhism. The space give its vibes of peace which are a little bit out of bustling Kathmandu.

At the top of a hill, this monastery was as welcoming as the monk I had met at the airport. Spectacular views - lovely stupas - and nice grounds for just walking around.
One does not need to be Buddhist to appreciate this spot.

Beautiful stupas surrounding the main Monastery set in well-manicured gardens with a thriving monk and nun population with retreaters alike.\
Lovely inside and has a coffee shop adjacent.

Interested in Buddhism, 10 dayes retreet will be the most amazing journey you will ever take. Not interested you will still enjy the garden at the view.
