Arrival at Neydo Monastery
Today you’ll travel from Kathmandu to Neydo, an impressive monastery nestled in the Kathmandu Valley. This monastery is visited by pilgrims of all faiths who come here to pray, including Newari, Hindus and Tibetan Buddhists. Below the monastery you’ll find the prayer room where readings and ceremonies (pujas) are held by monks. You’ll be able to watch the monks chanting mantras and offering sacrifices. This is a truly unique opportunity to observe and learn about life inside a monastery.
Departure from Neydo
After a good night’s sleep it’s time for an early start this morning. At 5am the bells ring to wake the monks, and they make their way to the main hall. Every morning they spend 1.5 hours praying for world peace and longevity. Afterwards you can have breakfast with the monks or return to the guesthouse to eat. After breakfast, the Tibetan language classes for the young monks start. You’re free to take a walk around the local area and enjoy the surroundings before heading to your next destination later that day.
