While in Nepal you must visit a Buddhist Monastery. There are so many there that I really can't recommend one, but if you can make it to one on or around Tibetan New Year it is a beautiful, exquisite experience! I was able to sit inside a monastery in Pokhara and listen to 40 monks chanting... with bells ringing and drums beating. It was so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.

Address: All over Nepal
Directions: Unfortunately, I never got the name of the monastery in Pokhara that I went to, but there are many to choose from.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
