  • I came to learn more about Buddhism and left feeling more self aware. Met amazing people. I stayed at Kopan for the duration of the course, 4 nights. I would bring healthy snacks such as fruits if you like to eat more frequently otherwise food is served 3 times a day. Also, there is a cafe that serves good filtered coffee and food. I liked the bookstore/library, things are reasonably priced compared to Thamel. Also, don't forget your towel, soap and toilet paper if you use it. Great place to learn.
  • Great if you're here on a Buddhist pilgrimage, skip if you want scenery or a cultural site, or if going without a good guide. Timings to see the hall are limited so try to find out from your guide beforehand (can be a test of how good your guide is. I missed the visit cos my guide didn't even know the timings..). Getting there is long and tedious because of the roads. The place is serene and quiet because there is absolutely nothing there
  • Nice place for peace and city view but couldn't enter the Gumba. Other than that nice place relax environment.
  • I have just finished a 10 day Mindfulness course at Kopan. Seriously, this place is amazing. The energy, the peace, the ability to learn and meditate and grow. I am grateful beyond words, thank you Kopan.
  • Need some peace of mind away from busy city life. Make a visit here. You will love the landscape and the arts here.

Where to stay in Kathmandu

Only a few establishments in Kathmandu suffered severe damage in the 2015 earthquake, which means that you can choose from a wide range of sleeping options. From luxurious hotels to inexpensive but cozy lodges, the city offers a suitable place for every type of budget. The neighborhood of Thamel contains most accommodations favored by foreign visitors, including basic guesthouses, budget hotels, and boutique establishments offering deluxe suites. For some of the least expensive options, look along Durbar Marg, a busy street just a few blocks from Thamel.
