The nuns at Nagi Gompa are a very fine group of practitioners and very friendly as well. A few speak English although they might be shy about it. The road, bad as always, from Budhanilkantha goes all the way into the nunnery grounds these days. Some local taxis who are familiar with the way are able to take people up,... More

Decided to take the advice of a local who pointed me in the direction of steps. When through the jungle and managed to find the place eventually. Nice views. Got lost on the way down to and ended up walking through nice little villages, making my way to Budharikumar temple

Which is best for hiking. visitor can find food,drink accept lodging.For the purpose of night spend respected visitors need to take camping.
