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

Free! Great views, and photogenic buildings on the side of a hill. Nice to just walk around and look/observe. Worth going to the top of the hill, and the bottom where the old temple is.

When you visit Nepal, a day trip to Namo Buddha is well worth the visit. Although only 40 km from Kathmandu, the trip takes 2 hours by road as it winds its way out of the valley and up to the hill where the Thrangu...More

This Temple, and the surrounding countryside, have so much to offer! There are friendly dogs, contemplative monks, and beautiful architecture nestled in scenic surroundings. Follow the prayer flags for a nice day's walk.

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...More

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. .
