  • Built under the direction of Kenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, this monastery is located on the heights of Namo Buddha, a small village about ten kilometers from Dhulikel and about 40 from Kathmandu. The road leading to the monastery currently looks like a track smashed by the heavy rains of April, which does not prevent taxis from taking it. The main gompa of the monastery is beautiful and the statues of the Buddhas are superb. Another room dedicated to Tara Verte is located in a building above the main gompa. You will have the opportunity to have lunch in the refectory with the monks, but on the other hand you will not be sitting at the same table. Some guesthouses located on the site offer rooms whose rate fluctuates according to the teachings taught by the masters. The "New Guesthouse" offers rooms of better comfort than the others but the price is also different. Count between Rs 1000 and Rs 2000 depending on the type of room and guesthouse. A must-see if you are in Dhulikel.
