Namobouddha situated at an elevation of 1750m is very important Buddhist Pilgrimage located in Kavre District about 38 km east of Kathmandu. The Stupa and shrines built in this lovely little hill mark a very ancient holy site significantly enough where a legendary prince named Mahasattva offered himself to a starving Tigress with its several underfed cubs. This legendary episode is depicted in a very nice stone slab and placed right next to a holy Stupa.
After breakfast at hotel, we drive for about one and half hours to a place called Dhapasi, 35 km east of Kathmandu, via an ancient Newar town Panuati with packed lunch box.
From Dhapasi the trail heads northeast and the trail becomes narrow as we move further. We cross on a suspension bridge and pass through many small villages to huge rice fields, which gives you a chance to see how Nepalese People plant and harvest the crop (during on the appropriate season). The trail goes steep uphill for about an hour before we reach Namobouddha. Today, the total hiking will be 5 hours.
After strolling sometimes around here, we will drive to Kathmandu via Dhulikhel in about one & half hour.
