Nepal Buddhist Tour at ‘Adventure Himalayan Travels and Treks' is a 9-day long tour covering all prominent Buddhist sites around Kathmandu Valley and proceed to the birthplace of Gautam Buddha, the enlightened one in Lumbini.
Buddha, who visited Earth more than 2500 years back, is highly revered throughout the world as the Light of Asia. He was a crown prince of the Ancient kingdom of Kapilvastu, which currently exists in Lumbini in the family of King Suddhodhana and Queen Mayadevi. Thus, Lumbini is the must-visit place for every Buddhist around the globe.
The fact that Nepal has seen religious tolerance and respect towards each others’ religion for many years is supported by the numerous stupas, chaityas and monasteries that remain scattered throughout Nepal alongside the Hindu Temples.
Our Nepal Buddhist Tour takes you through the colossal Bouddhanath Stupa, Buddhist Monastery at Kapan, and Swayambhunath Stupa, deemed to be among the most ancient stupas of the world as it was discovered somewhere around 2000yrs back. Also, we visit the Pharping Monastery near Kathmandu Valley and the World Peace Stupa in Pokhara before heading to Lumbini where we will observe the ruins of Ancient Kapilvastu City. The tour ends in Kathmandu, and may your spirit will be filled from this wonderful experience.
