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.

Arrival at Neydo 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.

“My memories of Nepal will stay with me forever; from making tasty momos with Tibetan refugees, to attending 5am prayers in a monastery. I haven’t tackled Everest (yet!), but it’s a favourite with my customers so I could be persuaded!"”
