It seems many people hike up to the monastery - good idea as the dirt road leading up guarantees an extremely bumpy and dusty ride by bus or taxi. The night at Namobuddha should have been a highlight of our tour of Nepal, but turned...More

The bus ride up to the monastery is an adventure, especially the final stretch when the bus grinds its way through the sandy and dusty dirt road. The monastery sits on top of a mountain and has a new guest house. Stunning views in all...More

You can't change the weather, so you just appreciate whatever you see for what it is. I think there may have been a great view, but not sure! The cafe there has some good food and is reasonably priced.

This monastery is one of the three most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites in Nepal. The monastery complex has an intense monastic life, the site is sacred and many pilgrims come here. It is a beautiful complex with lovely and large gardens, well-running facilities, many stupas,...More

I actually spent three nights/two and a half days at the monastery as part of a tour. My first thought, as a person with no religious adherence, that this would bore me, but I had a great time. Our group had two guides for our...More

A huge site but very welcoming and friendly with the monks young and old always busy. Fantastic views and a reasonable Cafe. Horrible road journey from Kathmandu so try to stay overnight locally.

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.
