Peaceful Monasteries

Peace and serenity in a Nepalese monastery

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Nepal holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

For peaceful monasteries and tranquil settings, head to the holy site of Lumbini. Said to be the birthplace of Siddharta Gautama, better known as the Buddha, Lumbini is rimmed by a monastic zone that includes the Theravadin, Mahayana and Vajrayana monasteries.

Explore the many ruins of ancient monasteries, the sacred Boddhi tree, the ancient bathing pond and the Mayadevi temple. For a truly authentic experience, stay in a monastery during your stay and explore the forests and villages outside of the complex.
