The best aspect of this hike is that it will give you an opportunity to witness the Buddhist culture and traditions that are practiced in the eastern part of Kathmandu. Additionally, the walk will also reveal the spectacular view of Himalayas. EXCITING!

Hike to Namobuddha is a kind of rim walks in the outskirt of Kathmandu Valley. The hike begins from the early morning after breakfast but prior to this, we will drop you in Dhulikhel—starting point of this hike.

It is roughly a hike of five hours. The walk will unfold some of the ancient villages of Kathmandu Valley where live Tamang people. They are natives of this area and practice Tibetan Buddhism.

The stupas, monasteries and prayer flags and wheels are fascinating for you. The hike will bring you in Namobuddha and this name is derived from a renowned monastery—Namobuddha—which is the key attraction of this hike.

As per legends, the monastery is built on bones and hair of prince Mahasattva who was very compassionate and kind. He offered his body to hungry tigress that left his hair and bones on which the monastery was built later to honor his compassion.

The second summit in the same hill will bring us in another stupa which is said to be the den of the tigress.
