From the Gokarna Mahadev temple, I walked to the Kopan Monastery, which belongs to the Gelugpa branch of Tibetan Buddhism 🙏. It’s an uphill walk of about 3 km, which grants wonderful views of the Kathmandu valley. I did it alone, just asking the locals for my way. Some did not have a clue or did not speak any English, a father with his young son offered to take me by motorbike 🏍 (which I refused, I’m afraid of motorbikes specially on the Nepalese roads! 😖). The last person to whom I asked my way was a Buddhist monk. He was from that monastery so I walked the last part of the path chatting with him.
I did not have high expectations but I loved the place. It stands on a hill with amazing views over the valley and has a beautiful garden with two colorful chortens (Tibetan stupas). Apparently many foreigners come here to study Buddhism or do meditation retreats. And I really understand why, the place is fantastic! So, I took good note to spend some time here when I retire 😉. Right besides the monastery is a restaurant where I had what was probably the cheapest meal 🍜 of my life: momos and Coca Cola for just 160 Nepalese rupees!!! Only 1.33 euros 😱!!!!

Dochula Pass, high on top of a mountain offering a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of the Himalayas. The air was so cool, so clear, so clean and so crisp ❤️❤️❤️❤️#108memorial #chortens
Dochula pass @flydrukyul
The Dochula Pass is a mountain pass in the snow covered Himalayas within Bhutan on the road from Thimpu to Punakha where 108 memorial chortens or stupas known as "Druk Wangyal Chortens" have been built by Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk, the eldest Queen Mother. Apart from the chortens there is a monastery called the Druk Wangyal Lhakhang (temple), built in honour of the fourth king Druk Gyalpo Jigme Singye Wangchuck. 🙏 #chortens #peopleofbhutan #happycountrylife #buddhismtemple #peaceandlove #dochulavisit #visitbhutanwithus #nationaldress #gho #smiles #landofthunderdragon #bhutan_ig #bhutantravel #bhutantrip #wellcome
♣️ The 108 Chortens (stupas) at Dochula Pass commemorating the brave deeds of His Majesty the Fourth King and the Royal Bhutan Army for Operation Flushout in 2003. The Chortens are a beautiful reminder of Bhutan's spirituality and architectural artistry. This has become one of the must-visit spots for tourists and locals alike ♣️

The Mani and prayer flags usually found almost on mountain ridges, making silhouette of the hills against the endless blue sky and are found around the settlement gives the feeling that the settlement is being protected. #analogy #urban #design #chortens #Mani #prayer #flags #paro #Bhutan #nature #human in #harmony #sky #amazing_bhutan #beautiful #day #myphotography #photograph #learningphotography
