How to get to the monastery

The monastery lies just behind the village of Bhanjang, which is about 20 kilometres from Kathmandu.

It’s easy to take a bus from the chaotic old bus park in the centre of Kathmandu though its more difficult on Saturdays (particularly afternoons), which is generally a rest day. Ask for the bus to Pharping or Dakshinkali. The ticket should cost less than a dollar.
