Kopan Monastery Nepal – The Kopan Monastery is a very special place located in the terraced rice steppes just above the Kathmandu valley. The monastery is high enough in the foothills of the Himalayas that it can be seen for miles around. This active monastery is home to 360 monks and is a mecca for foreign visitors from around the world.
Meditation and other courses are offered year round – full room and board provided at a reasonable cost. Some students end up staying for weeks, months or even years at a time. For more information please visit their website at: www.kopanmonastery.com or read about our Nepal experiences here
