This last summer I was able travel around Asia for six weeks with the love of my life. It was an amazing trip, and one of the most memorable events was staying at a Buddhist monastery in Nepal for ten days. Our first stop in Nepal was the capital city Kathmandu. We toured some of the major Buddhist and Hindu temples in the city, and got to experience the thrill and chaos of life in Nepal. It’s impossible to capture the real beauty of these temples with a photograph, but I tried my best.
After Kathmandu, we traveled to the Himalayan monastery via Lukla Airport…check out this video, as Lukla is known as the most dangerous airport in the world! We trekked for six hours to reach the monastery, and the trip was nothing short of breathtaking. We were able to learn so much about a culture and people so far from our own – we volunteered at the monastery for ten days, but we learned more than we could ever teach.
