This was truly a unique experience, being able to see everyday life of the monks, eating meals with them, and taking part in their group prayer/meditation sessions. There is nothing quite like it, even one night here is enough to have an everlasting impact. A absolute must do in Nepal!

I have spent over 2 months in Namobuddha monastery over multiple stays, and I have quite enjoyed my experience here. Beyond personal visits, I have also led student groups in this monastery, and the administration has been quite accommodating in providing Buddhist scholars and monks for sessions in Buddhist thought and practices. Highly recommended for authentic experience.

The monastery is an amazing place, situated in one of the most suggestive landmarks of Kathmandu 's valley. They offer a no-thrills but clean accomodation (as with many places in nepal the rooftop view is simply amazing) with the option to participate in the monastery breakfast (very early!) and morning prayer. A beautiful cultural and spiritual experience, recommended!

I stayed one night at the Monastery guest house and it was lovely. The room was large, the bed comfy and warm and plenty of hot water. I'd recommend eating at the canteen instead of with the monks.

Beautiful drive up the mountain to this Monastery. Involves lots of steps and climbing but is worth it. Great views. .

There are a lot of Buddhist temples to visit in Nepal. The location of Thrangu Tashi outside of Kathmandu proper and the views make it worth the trek. And it is a trek (there are a lot of stairs, and you can walk to/from Panauti or Dhulikhel). The shrine room is one of the most beautiful I have seen. We... More

We hiked to the monastery from Dhuilkhel. The stupa is slightly below the monastery, which is reached via some fairly steep steps. Note that the hike is on a combination of blacktop and dusty dirt roads...not the best terrain, but the destination is worth it. Beautiful view and tranquil surroundings with many prayer flags.

We did a days hike from when I was staying at Bhattedanda homestay. Beautiful monastery and a lovely view. Nice and peaceful atmosphere. Also not so many tourists.

Full day tour with a private car (AC) and guide costed 110 USD and it was worth of it. The walk started in Dhulikhel and ended in Panauti (2 + 2 hours). The path went trough small villages and passed several farmers houses. Weather was sunny and completely clear, no fog nor clouds. All the tops of Himalaya mountain were... More

We walked from Dhulikhel to Namo Buddha. It took us about 5 hours but we stopped a lot on the way. The monastery is really beautiful, the paintings and carvings are amazing. The view is stunning, especially for sunrise. We had the chance to attend the night ceremony with the monks which was really impressive. We slept in the monastery's... More
