Neydo Tashi Choeling Monastery
Tucked away in the Himalayas of Nepal, amidst the most scenic area, there lies a Buddhist Monastery Guest-house in the most peaceful location alongside Neydo Tashi Choeling Monastery, just 22km or less than an hour’s drive from the heart of hectic Kathmandu. It is located in the southwest corner of the Kathmandu Valley close to Pharping.
The Neydo Monastery is purposely situated close to the Asura Cave where Padmasambhava or Guru Rinpoche, as he is known affectionately, meditated and achieved the highest realization. “There is energy which really helps our meditation practice,” says Dechen, the daughter of the monastery’s founder, Karma Chagmé Rinpoche.
Almost 200 monks live and study here and if you wish you may eat alongside them, participate in their practice, and gain insight of their monastic life.
Sited on pine-forested ridge and seemingly far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, experience the peace and serenity of nature. Established in 1993, Haatiban is the second oldest resort in the Kathmandu Valley, and is just 22 kilometers away, the closest mountain resort from Kathmandu Valley. The resort offers the best views of the valley below and the snow-capped Himalayan Mountains spanning from Langtang till Gauri Shankar.
