  • This is a truly special place with amazing and kind people. So nice to unplug and sink into this tranquil space. The grounds are incredibly well kept, the food is so satisfying and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Even in monsoon season I had the best time detaching from the world and spending time there. Next time I would love to check out the courses offered. Especially the 2 month course. Wish I could have stayed longer, definitely will be back!
  • Such a beautiful place located at the foothills of Himalayas. It's soothing for the soul. Not only is the place absolutely lovely, the food is lip smacking too and you also get dairy free/ gluten free options. If you want to do some soul searching/healing(or simply studying), Thosamling is a very good option. Also, if you want to get out of your busy/stressful life for a change, then you could plan to stay here for a couple of days/weeks and feel rejuvenated and refreshed before you get back to the grind. I stayed here as a paid guest but they do have options for volunteering as well. And do not miss the Shamatha meditation course that is conducted fortnightly. Its an intense 3 day course that really helps understand the nuances of meditation. The Himalayas is an absolute delight to watch any time of the day. Meditating with that view? Bliss!
