We have private transport to pick you up from your hotel at 7:300 am, an hour's drive to Dhulikhel. It offers a beautiful mountain panorama before we set out for a 4 hrs day hiking to Namobuddha at 1750 meters. It is a famous ancient Buddhist monastery in Nepal situated at 1750 meters, surrounded by Tamang settlements close to Kathmandu. There is a unique Buddhist legend about King Mahasattva offering his body to a hungry tigress at this very place which makes Namo Buddha a holy site for Buddhist people. Namo Budhha is also famous for growing rice, mustard, and millet. Thus you can see beautiful hillside terraced farms throughout the day hike. You'll also be surprised by the number of temples, landscape variation, and diversity of people living in harmony.
