Namo Buddha Hiking

Namo Buddha Hiking

It is beautiful tiny hill top about 45 Km. east of Kathmandu after Dhulikhel. Namo Buddha Hiking is one of the holiest sites for Buddhists in Nepal. Namo Buddha Hiking lies 38 km east of Kathmandu lies a very beautiful Buddhist monastery named Namo Buddha at the height of 1,750m. It is holy place for Buddhist. The mythology about this place is that the king Mahasattva feed hungry tigress with his own flesh, and his Stupa remained underground for centuries. One fine day Buddha Shakyamuni came to this place and got attracted by protuberance and as soon as he clapped his hand the Stupa appeared miraculously. Our hike to this holy land is very relaxing and easy. The whole trial winds around beautiful villages, along the foothill, riverbanks, gorgeous rice and millet fields, dense forests, and magnificent panorama of the landscape of the mother earth wrapping this wonderful place.

Beside this beautiful monastery you too will find many temples and other monasteries. In the trial we will encounter with confluence of Roshi Khola and Pungmati Khola. Although this heritage site is very near to Kathmandu it is rarely visited by tourists
