  • If you want a day off from your hustle and bustle of your life, then this is the best place to go. Kapan Monastery offers absolute peace and tranquility. This also offers medication course for those interested. Entry might be difficult though (general public are not allowed on a regular basis). You might have to be persuasive. :D
  • Its a old university as well as a tourist place in kopan where you can have an amazing view an have your buddies to chill there.
