“Your holiday maker in adventure himalaya”
Namobuddha Hike, at an elevation of 1750 meters, is an important Buddhist pilgrimage site situated about 38 kilometers east of Kathmandu. It is a magnificent hill top surrounded by ethnic Tamang settlements. There is an interesting tale related to the history of Monastery, how a young prince sacrificed himself to feed a hungry tigress and her cubs. This legendary episode is depicted in a very nice stone slab right next to the holy Stupa.
The hike to Namobuddha begins with a drive from Kathmandu for about one an half hours to the place called Dhapasi, which is 35 kilometers east of Kathmandu. From Dhapasi, you head to the north-east where the trail becomes narrow as you move further. Crossing suspension bridge, you can pass through many small villages with enormous rice fields allowing you a wonderful opportunity to witness how Nepalese people plant and harvest their crops. The trail goes steeply uphill for about an hour until reaching Namobuddha. After making some detours in and around the area here, you will drive to Kathmandu via Dhulikhel which takes about one & half hours.
