  • The setting is perfect for reflection and meditation. Fascinating architecture in the middle of the Rockies. Will return.  more »
  • This is a beautiful piece of land. The walk to the Stupa is well worth it. Old and young can make it. I enjoyed my time there.  more »

  • This is an absolutely beautiful and unique treasure tucked into the Rocky Mountains. I have been coming to the Shambhala annually since I was a kid, and even as an adult who has been here many times, I still experience child like wonder and amazement each time I see the Stupa!
  • A wonderful hidden gem in the Poudre/Redfeather area. Open daily (including labor day) and free. The stupa is so well maintained, it never has a speck of dirt anywhere. The inside is beautiful and peaceful. Lots of other amenities like the tea house near the stupa, and the gift shop. Workshops and retreats for the more serious/less casual visitor. A lovely place to visit.
  • A truly sublime area deep in the Colorado mountains. Entire staff from teachers to drivers are deeply thoughtful and welcoming. The property is immaculately maintained, with many of the buildings blending in with the surroundings, lending to the feeling of utter seclusion and solitude. The sunrises are spectacular and the sunsets unforgettable. A transformative experience for anyone that I highly recommend.
  • Ohm 🙏...so much beauty and serenity!
  • We visited for a few hours during a nearby camping excursion. Delicious vegan lunch for $10 suggested donation. Great meditation led by staff at noon. Lovely, calming vibe with students on silent retreat and cute chipmunks darting around everywhere. Beautiful chupa a short hike up the hill with cool breezes blowing, even in July. We had a wonderful, peaceful experience here.
