Namobuddha Day Hike Overview

Namobuddha Day Hike in the Kavre District of Nepal is the most favored hike among both local and international tourists. Taking you to an elevation of 1750m and around 37km east of Kathmandu city, this short hike frees your mind from all kinds of exhaustion. Further, standing in the spiritual land of Namobuddha you can’t hide the beatific smile from your face.

According to the legends, once a magnanimous and benevolent prince named Great Being offered his life to save the starving tigress and her cubs.

After his sacrifice, the tigress left only the bare bones of the Prince. Later, the remains of his body were brought back to the village and enshrouded in a tomb. Namo Buddha Stupa where it stands now was once the tomb of that prince. Around 15 minutes of walk from this stupa, there is a stone slab depicting this full story.

Even though the stupa of Namobuddha is not big like that of the Swayambhunath or Boudha Nath, it is considered an important pilgrimage destination for Buddhist followers throughout the world. Venturing through the four hours of hiking trails from Dhulikhel, this Namobuddha Hiking gives you full insight into the impact of Buddhism in Nepal.

Further, the construction of the Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery in the vicinity of the Namobuddha Stupa made it possible for pilgrims or hikers to enjoy a blissful time during their stay in Namo Buddha. Visible from the far distance the fluttering prayer flags and gleaming gold-plated roofs of this monastery lure you instantly before you arrive at the particular monastery location. When you reach the exact location, the serene ambiance and architectural beauty of the monastery light up some kind of spark inside your body.

You can end your Dhulikhel Namobuddha Day Hike by taking the return drive to Kathmandu from Dhulikhel on the same day. However, if you want more hiking then the traditional village of Panauti is just 2 and half hours of hiking distance away. While trekking through the trails of Namo Buddha to Panauti, you will notice the sound of birds and cicadas turning into the sounds of local peoples and their cattle.

This day hike from Namobuddha to Panauti blesses you with the opportunity to soak in the Newari culture of the ancient Newari town of Panauti. Further, the old Hindu temples at Panauti are some of the beautiful treasures that make your day hike more fruitful.

If you have additional days left and want more hiking then, we have lots of hiking near Kathmandu Valley. To name a few, Phulchowki Hiking, Champadevi Hill Hiking, Shivapuri Hill Hiking, and Kakani Hiking.
