There is no need to exaggerate this. The place is very quiet and pure. Its environment is very clean, with no pollution, and the natural air is so fresh, cool and healthy. It is also the right place for meditation and practice. You can enjoy snow-covered Himalayan ranges which look so amazing and pure. From the Buddhist point of view, Namo Buddha is one of the most important religious sites in Nepal.  Thrangu Tashi Yangtse connects the story of compassion shown by the Buddha in his one of the incarnations, offering his own flesh to the hungry tigress who was totally ill and was about to eat her cubs around.
