Kopan Monastery, Kathmandu, Part 1 of 3

With its steady stream of visitors, it's easy to see why the Kopan Monastery in the Kathmandu valley is popular, Perched on a hilltop with the spectacular Himlayan mountain range as a backdrop, its location is ideal for quiet contemplation and study.

Unless you have your own transport arrangement, it's a steady one and the half
uphill trek from the town of Boudhanath. Frankly, I nearly gave up what with the rain and a muddy path to contend with.


  1. Wow! What beauty and grandeur. Lucky you to have travelled so far and wide.

  2. I agree with Andy! Love the praying altar!!! It looks like some precious altar :)
