In 1961, the villages from Thamo kindly offered a plot of land for the monastery and approached Khari Rinpoche to settle in their village. The Rinpoche and his followers happily a accepted the offer and with the help of the community, the new Khari Gompa was built in 1962 in a record time of three days.

Lawudo Retreat Center
In the Solu Khumbhu Mountains at 4000m, Lawudo Lama, a famous yogi and the previous incarnation of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, lived and meditated in a cave for many years. He belonged to the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and had been a great master of the complete tantric teachings of the Nyingma tradition. He spent all his time either meditating or giving teachings and spiritual advice to the people of Solu Khumbhu and neighboring regions. The present Lama Thupten Zopa Rinpoche was initiated into Nyingma tradition by the head lama of the Thame Gompa. When he returned to Solu Khumbhu in 1967, he restored the cave and built a small Gompa. Since then, some rooms water supply, and solar panels were added to facilitated retreat for locals and visitors. Lawudo has become an ideal place for solitary retreat, offering silence and solitude in a magic and spiritually charged atmosphere, a fitting place for meditation. At present there are fifty children in the monastery receiving a closely supervised monastic education that includes not only traditional Buddhist studies, but classes in Nepali, English, Tibetan, Mathematics and art as well. Due to high altitude, Lawudo is cold all year round; one needs to be equipped with warm clothing and sleeping bag. Those heart-problems should check with their doctors regarding the high altitude.

Monk: One
The whole of khumbhu is considered sacred and there are many caves and hermitages that are used by highly regarded teachers, and monks for meditation and retreat. Most villages have a temple or Gompa, which is supported by the lay community. The monks are invited to the villages to perform the important yearly ceremonies. Perched precariously at an altitude of 4800m, one hour above Dingboche village, Nakarjung Hermitage rests on the steep slopes of Nakarjung-Ri, a sacred peak believed to be the abode of a Dolma, or goddess of prosperity. The hermitage is the oldest in the Khumbhu region and one of the highest in the world. The hermitage is believed to be built on the first meditation site of Lama Sangwa Dorjee, the Tibetan Lama who first brought Nyingmapa Buddhism to the Khumbhu. Its spectacular location affords commanding views of the Imja Khola Valley, Ama Dablam, Makalu and other snow-capped mountains. The hermitage is now used primarily for Nyingne meditation sessions: monks spend their days alternating in prayer and meditative fasts. Monks from Tengboche monastery often come to the monastery for spiritual retreats and intensive medition, often staying for three months at a time. In mid June, the Gompa is the focal point of the local festival of Dukpa Chejik, when the small stream that runs by the monastery is celebrated for its healing powers (Dukpa means “healing, holy water”, and Chejik means “first day”).
