Overview

Not only this tour takes you to Lumbini, but also to all the famous Buddhist sites that are in Nepal, especially that are in Kathmandu, and they include Swayambhunath, which has a dome-like structure at its base, above which you see a cubical structure.

The structure that you look at it has painted eyes of Buddha. Bouddhanath stupa is another important Buddhist site and is one of the largest Buddhist stupas in the world, where over 50 Tibetan Gompas or monasteries are located. This tour also provides you with all the resources that you want to have on Buddhism. One of the highlights is, it takes you to Namo Boudha, and the reason why it is famous is, that it has Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, where the Lord Buddha gave his body to a starving tigress and her cubs.

The Buddhist Tour in Nepal has richness because it takes you to Lumbini. The reason why Lumbini comes first on the list is, it is the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Other sites that follow it are Bodh Gaya, Kushinagar, and Sarnath, each of these sites is in India. Of these sites, Bodhgaya occupies an important place because it is where the Lord Buddha was enlightened. But Lumbini is Lumbini because it is the birthplace, where you will see the palace of Lord Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, which has more than 365 million followers.

It is not only a religious tour but also cultural because it familiarizes you with all the important UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Kathmandu. In this tour, you head off to the palaces that are in Kathmandu, wherein you will walk in their courtyards as the kings and queens used to in the past, and where you will be amazed by the beautiful windows and wooden crafts that the famous Nepalese architectures of that time designed and made.
