THUPTEN CHOLING MONASTERY

Nepal, Uncategorized

Thupten Choling is the retreat community and monastery established by Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche in the 1960s in the Solu Khumbu district of northeastern Nepal. At the moment there are around 350 nuns practicing and pretty much running the monastery.

As usual I’m drawn to the kitchen so I spent most of my time with the other Anis watching and helping them cook/prep, getting smacked in the butt (yep. they’re pretty silly) and drinking tons of tea as they won’t stop offering until you’ve had three cups already.

A very special place above Junbesi in the Solu Khumbu.
