Things To Do In Kopan Monastery
Only north of the old Buddhist town of Boudhanath is the Kopan slope, which ascends out of the terraced fields of the Kathmandu valley and is obvious for a significant distance. Commanded by a glorious bodhi tree, it was at one time the home of the soothsayer to the ruler of Nepal.
