Accommodations

Hope is the Spark that Changes Lives

nepal viewsThere are two options for accommodations at the Nunnery.  The standard accommodations are shared rooms inside the monastery compound.  Accommodations are rustic, but comfortable. We will be sleeping on single beds with two to four people per room.  We use Asian-style squat toilets and solar showers (so be prepared that hot water is not always available).  While lacking some comforts, this option puts you right in the center of the nuns’ lives, making for a memorable experience.

For those who prefer to stay in accommodations that are a bit more private and comfortable, you can stay in the Nunnery Guest House.  The Guest House is situated just outside of the inner compound, but still within the nunnery grounds.  It has a full kitchen, lots of communal space and two outdoor patios with spectacular views.  There are two indoor, western-style flush toilets as well as two solar showers.  NOTE:  There is a surcharge to stay in the guest house – and space is limited, so it’s first come, first reserved.

We have all meals at the monastery, prepared by the nuns with help from team members.  The food is typical Nepalese / Tibetan, primarily vegetarian and tends to be spicy.  Most volunteers find the food basic but delicious!

Electricity is available in the evenings and throughout the night.
