Travel Memories: Lawudo Gompa

High in the Himalayas, in a place very few trekkers ever visit, you can find the Lawudo Gompa above Mende. The Sherpa structures are built around the cave Guru Lama Zopa Rinpoche carved out under a giant boulder for his decades of meditation.

The space is now turned into a shrine to the Guru, with the accompanying hermitage dedicated to ongoing teachings in Buddhist ways. You can find more information, and even plan your own stay, here. If you want to “get away from it all”, Lawudo Gomba will make that escape possible.
