Trip Itinerary

The morning after breakfast by  as 10 a.m. our guide receives you for an exciting drive outside Kathmandu city. Heading due east reaching the suburb of Bhaktapur city, and then driving towards winding up to Sanga ridge top.

Stopping for a short visit to the Hindu temple of Shiva statue stands tall, almost the height of the Statue of Liberty. From here drive leads to a Banepa town, and then the drive diverts south to an old town of Panauti.  We pass through Panauti, the ancient farm town, and visit the old Hindu temples.

The drive continues heading up on a winding path, avoiding the main motorable road. The drive follows through nice farm villages with neatly cultivated terraces, then slowly the climb ends reaching Namobuddha holy premises. 

Namo Buddha is one of the most important Buddhist pilgrimage sites, reveres as the holiest Buddhist site; located 40 km southeast of Kathmandu.

For Tibetans, Namo Buddha is known as "Takmo Lujin" which means giving body to the tigress. The local Newari name is "Namra, the legend behind Namobuddha where Matriya, the future Buddha. Who came across a feeble hungry tigress with young cubs, the mother tigress was weak. She could not hunt to feed her cubs without regret the lord offered his flesh. Hence saving the tigress and the cubs from hunger. Explore the interesting holy site of Namobuddha, located amidst serene forest surroundings, a perfect spot for worship.

The holy site of Namobuddha, also known as the ‘Three Stupas in Nepal’ or Tagmo Lüjin, translates as "The place where the future Buddha sacrificed his body to a tigress". This holy site is unmistaken based on the clear identification given in the Sutra Requested by the Tigress and so forth.

Wonderful Namobuddha tour

Esperienza stupenda, Namobuddha è un posto meraviglioso che merita la visita, il monastero e la zona circostante è una delle cose che più ci è piaciuta della nostra permanenza in Nepal. Abbiamo mangiato bene e anche le soste intermedie sono state piacevoli e interessanti. Una menzione speciale per Ram guida e accompagnatore perfetto: gentile, educato, sempre disponibile a soddisfare le nostre curiosità e attento ai nostri bisogni. è stato un meraviglioso compagno di viaggio! Grazie di tutto!
