Experience a hidden place to relax, think, connect, eat and play in peace
During this week you will escape your hectic daily life in a peaceful environment and experience the life in a buddhist monastery. See, feel, smell, hear and taste the heart of the monastery during your stay. Allow yourself this unique, unexplored experience.
Zaam will lead you round for the whole week and will bring you in contact with the monks, the surroundings and the local citizens.
In the hills near Kathmandu (approx 15km) Nepal stands the buddhist Neydo monastery. Here live 120 young monks between the age of 4 and 21. They are following a course to become monks, under the supervision of dozens of older monks.
The leader of this monastery is Rinpochee H.H Ngom Neydo Karma Chagme. He is one of the spiritual leaders of the Kagyu and Nyingma tradition of Tibetian Buddhism. (www.helptibet.com)
You will stay for 7 nights in a luxurious room in the Neydo hotel, inside the walls of the monastery. Every day you can enjoy local, fresh produce. (www.neydohotel.com)
