BEST TIMESpring Autumn Summer Winter
After Kathmandu, Swyambhunath, and Bouddhanath, Namobudha is one of the most prominent Buddhist sacred sites. It is situated on a beautiful hill 45 kilometers from Banepa on the Panauti route. The religiously significant Namobuddha, which is surrounded by a tranquil setting and lush hills, is rapidly gaining popularity as a Buddhist pilgrimage site. The location is also acquiring a reputation as a tourist destination, with an increasing number of foreign tourists visiting each year. On the full moon day of Baisakh (May), Lord Buddha's birthday, a large event is held here. The celebration attracts tens of thousands of Buddhist and Hindu pilgrims. The artistic monasteries and the statue of "Sacrifice to the Tigress," which are positioned around the hilltop famous for sunrise and sunset views, also attract tourists.
The monastery is easily accessible from Dhulikhel, Panauti, Balthali, and Dapcha, among other tourist destinations. Namobuddha is 10 kilometers from Panauti and 15 kilometers from Dhulikhel. According to mythology, King Maharath ruled over a huge town situated between Panauti and Sankhu. King Maharath had three sons, the youngest of whom, Mahahridaya, was a very good man. The three princes were once traveling and came across a jungle. They came across a mother Tiger and her five cubs. The Tiger was frail and frail-looking. When Prince Mahahridaya questioned his brothers why the Tigres were so feeble, they said it was because of a shortage of food. The kind-hearted prince reasoned that feeding the tigers with his own body would be a tremendous gesture of charity. So, without his brothers' knowledge, he began feeding the starving tigers by pulling off his body parts with tree branches and died.
The remains of the kind-hearted prince are said to be housed at the Namobuddha Stupa. The beneficent prince's soul ascended to heaven and is thought to have been reborn at Lumbini, Nepal. When Lord Buddha arrived in Namobuddha after receiving enlightenment, it is stated that he told his pupils that in his previous incarnation, he had sacrificed his life there and that his remains were kept there. Devotees offer prayer and light oil lamps in reverence at the site, which is today considered a holy pilgrimage.

Local village lifestyle
After having early morning breakfast, we will start our drive from Kathmandu to Dhulikhel, where our hike begins. We hike to Namobuddha, one of Nepal's most sacred Buddhist pilgrimage destinations. We'll be walking for around three hours, giving you plenty of time to take in the sights of the local villages and terraced farmlands. It may be little, but it is significant to Tibetan Buddhists because it remembers Siddhartha Gautam's deed of offering his body to a hungry tigress, which is supposed to have contributed to his capacity to acquire enlightenment and, eventually, Buddhahood. We will eat lunch at Kavre Bhanjyang on our trip to Namobuddha and then arrive at Namobuddha. After that, we'll take a short stroll above the stupa to a recently constructed Tibetan Buddhist monastery located on the mountaintop. When you arrive here, you may simply unwind and enjoy yourself. After some time to unwind, we will return to Kathmandu and drop you off at your hotel.
