Among many other things, Nepal is well-known to the world as the birth-place of Lord Buddha. Having this in mind, which other place on earth would be a better destination to explore the secrets of Buddhism? The Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour takes you to all the famous locations important for Buddhism in Nepal. We start the tour in Kathmandu – a place renowned for its numerous temples, many of which are Buddhist. Kopan Monastery resides in a peaceful location on top of a hill, where Buddhist monks are happy to share the basic teachings of Buddhism with visitors. This knowledge will help you more appreciate the various locations that you will visit later on in the tour. Learn the best-kept secrets of Buddhism in Kopan monastery, while enjoying the breathtaking landscapes surrounding the site. Our next stop is Boudhanath Stupa, the biggest of its kind in the world. The stupa and the surroundings are a magical place where Buddhist monks and followers dwell and pray. Swayambhunath Stupa is a temple worshipped both by Hindus and Buddhists, where you can witness the strong link between the two religions. It is believed to be self-emerged from a lotus flower and resides on a top of a hill overlooking Kathmandu. Our next destination is the monastic hill of Pharping, a spiritual abode where Guru Rinpoche meditated before moving to Tibet.
From the Kathmandu Valley, the tour continues to Lumbini – the birth place of Buddha. We won’t let you miss all the important locations in and around Lumbini significant for the life of Lord Buddha. There is no better way to end the trip than visiting the places important to the master himself.
Upon your request, we can arrange a personal meditation and/or yoga guru that will accompany you on this magnificent journey and will teach you the healthy practices of Buddhism.
