This place is yet another place to be in if you are searching for place with clean peaceful environment. Located just about 2 km from kapan monastery this monastery isn't less than kopan monastery in any aspect. These two moastery are both equally beautiful only difference is kopan monastery is more hyped and bit more infrastructured.

Hike up to the place and you will not regret it. It has a serene environment which helps find the peace. Away from the hustle and bustle of Kathmandu city, it is the ideal place to relax in solitude.

Pullahari monastery is situated far away from the busy Kathmandu city. This is only recommended if you have a full day time. Hiking around and not top is something additional. Bring your own lunch and it could be a great picnic. The view of the valley is very pretty form the top. Highly recommended.

Just 40 minutes walk, or a short trip by local bus or taxi from Boudha, the Pullahari Monastery is a sanctuary far away from the crowds and bustle of Kathmandu. The Monastery is located on a hill above the Boudha area on the same ridge as Kopan Monastery. A wonderful day trip is a walk or ride to Kopan Monastery... More

Pullahari Monastery: Nestled in the foothills north of the Great Stupa of Boudhanath, the quiet, secluded serenity of Pullahari is ideal for cultivating deeper insight into the Buddhadharma through listening, reflection, and meditation. Monks engage intensively in prayers, scriptures, rituals, and dedications for temporal benefit of beings and ultimate realisation. Those in the 3-year retreat train in the ancient contemplative...

Perhaps my fav. place on the trip. Walk up (or ride) from Bouddha, 45 min., on hilltop, monastery/institute/temple complex, Tibetan Buddhist, floats on hills above the Valley, the wall/ceiling paintings, shrines, thangkas are absolutely superb, the feeling is of utter peace.

This gompa is a little difficult to get to, but taxis do go if they know where it is. It is also walkable from Boudhanath. The new lhakang stands on the end of a spur overlooking the Kathmandhu Valley - beautiful.
