Nestled in the Himalayas, the geographical location of Nepal provides an atmosphere of solitude and quiet thinking. Kathmandu, the national capital, is no exception. The Boudhanath Stupa in Kathmandu is surrounded by many monasteries, each distinct in its teachings and practices. If you want to unwind, think, relax, and view life from a different perspective, a monastery is the best place to do so. Smiling, peaceful monks, idyllic locales, charming weather, simplistic food, and the divine aura are sure to do you good.
