Thrangu Tashi Monastery, Dhulikhel

Take a hike to glorious Thrangu Tashi Monastery, where you can learn about Buddhist philosophy and join in some rituals. Thrangu Rinpoche founded the monastery and established the attached monastic school, which focuses on the study of Buddhist philosophy. Stand on the veranda and look closely at the richly decorated exterior, where you can see symbols of the five Buddha families decorating the curved roof in Indian style. Devoted to lasting happiness and compassion, this monastery allows you to explore its interior, where you can see a tall Buddha statue, with statues of five kneeling disciples in front of him. The profound teachings at the monastery inspire faith, with everyone welcome to join; you can meditate, join in some ceremonies, or just observe. Step outside to enjoy incredible views of Himalayan peaks and a nearby village. Before you visit Dhulikhel, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • In the context of a trip I spent 1 night in one of the guest rooms here. These are very simple, but functionally furnished. We could attend the two ceremonies, taking place daily for the young monks. With the young monks together we dinner and breakfast ate. At 22:00 h we close the main gate, anyone who is not in the system must seek a different place to sleep. Outside the monastery gates, there is a small kiosk that earns well at the 'tourists of monastery of'. There's beer, cigarettes, Cola and coffee. Anything that you can't get at the monastery.

  • The monastery is well maintained and you get much of the monastic life. Participation in a prayer ceremony was impressive. The food was some getting used and very easy. There's nothing to drink except for butter tea and water. The rooms were simple but clean and totally sufficient. A special experience!
