Namobuddha is a magical and peaceful buddhist pilgrimage place, on a hill top, with its monasteries, stupa, and himalayan view. Stay overnight in the monastery before a hike to Panauti, an ancient cultural Newari town.
Namobuddha is the beautiful hill top which is very popular for Buddhist Pilgrimages as it was the place where Lord Buddha cut his own flesh to feed hungry Tigress. Namobudha is 45 km east from Kathmandu. The Stupa , Monasteries and shrines build up in this lovely little hill are beautiful and worth visiting.
Wake up early in the morning to drive by car or bus to Panauti, an ancient cultural Newari town. We will hike about 4-5 hrs through beautiful villages, paddy farms and spectacular green hills around as well as white peaks on the horizon. In Namobuddha we eat lunch first and visit Monasteries, temples and Stupa around then drive back to Kathmandu or stay overnight at Namobuddha or Dhulikhel.
