Namobuddha one day trip
Ludovica Oria July 3, 2018
If you have a day free in Kathmandu and you’re not sure what to do in the city why not move a bit out from the chaotic city and embark yourself in a Buddhist experience. Namobuddha will wait for you up on the hills with breathtaking landscapes of 180° view of the mountain and the peak of Mt Everest.
We start our day quite early in the morning by picking you up from your hotel at 7:30 am for an hour and half driving to Dhulikhel which offer the wonderful mountain panorama before we set for a 4 hrs day hiking trip to Namobuddha. Namo Buddha is a famous ancient Buddhist monastery in Nepal situated at 1750 meters which is one of the three major Buddhist pilgrimage sites. There is a special Buddhist legend about King Mahasattva offering his body to a hungry tigress and cubs at this place. Thus Dhulikhel – Namobuddha day hike is a superb day hike in Nepal to explores the famous Buddhist sites with wonderful day hiking experience away from the crown. Surely a great experience of day hike around Kathmandu even if you just have a day only for the adventure activities in your stay in Nepal.
