| Dhulikhel & Namobuddha Tour
Pilgrimage and a Himalayan dawn.
Dhulikhel is renowned for its views of the Himalaya – particularly impressive at dawn and nearby Namobuddha is an important pilgrimage site.
Where are you going?
Day 1: Drive to Dhulikhel via the lovely Newari village of Panauti. In clear weather Dhulikhel offers impressive views of the Himalaya - particularly at dawn.
Day 2: Namobuddha is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the Valley, particularly significant to Tibetan Buddhists. It is associated with one of the Jataka Tales, which recount the previous lives of the Buddha. Colorful prayer flags and pilgrims surround the white stupa and a carved stone slab recounts the tale. The 2-hour walk through fields, plantations and small villages is extremely pleasant and offers an excellent glimpse of rural life.
Day 3: Up early for a Himalayan sunrise, then return to Kathmandu.
