Namobuddha Monastery Hiking Tour

Namobuddha Monastery Hiking Tour
Namobuddha (or Namura) is for Tibetans one of the three holiest pilgrimage sites south of the Himalaya. Legends say a young prince, Mahasattva (reincarnation of Buddha himself) while walking in a forest with his brothers saw a tigress with 5 cubs she had just given birth to. The tigress was so hungry that she could barely move. Overcome with compassion, he began to feed the tigress and her cubs by cutting his flesh. Later when other brothers came searching for him, found only his bones and hairs. A stupa was built on top of these remains, now known as Namobuddha.

    About 40 km away from Kathmandu lies one of holiest pilgrimage site in the word for Buddhist. Sprawling terraced rice fields, typical Newari villages, view of snow capped mountains in a clear day, Buddhist temples, and green forests are few of the attractions of this trail.

    One of the best outing destination on the outskirt of Kathmandu valley, Balthali is a typical village with ancient traditions and cultures yet to be touched by today’s modernization. Our chartered bus will drive us up to Batase Danda and from there will begin our hike. This hike will be a mix of cultural, village and jungle walk.
