Nepal Nunnery Experience: 1 Day
Nagi Gumba is a popular monastery located in the middle of Shivapuri Peak from Pani Muhan. Here is where you will have lunch with nuns. The atmosphere here is enchanting, with the cool breeze and zen vibes flowing here endlessly. Undoubtedly, Nagi Gumba will serve as the perfect place to re-energize your tired body, mind, and soul as you eat local food and mingle with nuns.
There are benches kept around the wide field that offers you comfort. Here, you can watch the yellow monastery, watch the prayer flags nearby sway, watch the birds fly above and feel relaxed. Here, you will get a small glimpse into the simple life lived here by the nuns in service of the monastery. You will see grown women and little girls wrapped in a red sari, yellow shirt and red shawl living the life of a ‘Ani’, a Buddhist nun. They are rich with warm hospitality, humble words, and beautiful smiles. Since only nuns live here, this place is also known as Ani Gumba.
We start the day early with a pick up from your hotel in Kathmandu. The private transfer drives about an hour maximum to the gates of the Shivapuri National Park. After entrance formalities, you will walk with your guide for about two hours through the pristine forests to Nagi Gompa Nunnery. Upon arrival at the nunnery, you will get some time to explore the area while the guide arranges the lunch that was prepared for you by the nuns. You then have the humble but delicious lunch, mingle with the nuns and take pictures before walking back to the gates where a private car will drive you back to Kathmandu
