We set out on an hour long trek to the Kopan Monastery, north of the ancient Buddhist town of Boudhanath. The air was clean and fresh and the view across the valley was truly magical. A tranquil oasis where the Buddhist story is perfectly captured in the story of Siddhartha displayed in the magnificent gardens.
This Monastery is home to nearly 400 monks ranging in ages from seven to sixty years of age. Visitors come from all over the world to meditate, attend courses and to expand their wisdom and compassion as taught by the founder, Lama Tubten Yeshe.
