I decided to book 3 nights at Pullahari to experience living with Tibetan monks and learning about their culture, practices and philosophy. From 3, it became 6 days. The grounds are amazing, the views are incredible. It is way above the valley, situated in a pine forest. The main shrine is beautiful. What makes it magical are the monks who chant accompanied by giant drums, trumpets ( biggest you will ever see), cymbals and all other exotic tibetan instruments. Make sure you ask what time they are performing these Pujas or chants. The monks are very friendly. In particular, they are extra friendly when they are at the cafe. Order the honey lemon ginger tea for 35 rupees. Unforgettable. Ram, the chef also makes a mean vegetarian fried noodle. Lama Kunsang, the monk who runs the coffee is a comedian. he is very friendly and will answer your questions from being a monk to his favourite places to eat. Pullahari also offers annual meditation courses, so check their website. Part of me did not want to write this review as many tourists can ruin the atmosphere. Pullahari is one of those hidden gems of Kathmandu. I plan to be back again next year!
