Namoboudha is situated at the hill top of Panauti and is a very important Buddhist pilgrimage located in Kavre District about 38 kilometers, east of Kathmandu valley. The stupa and shrines build on this hill has significantly made marks and is an ancient holy site where according to the legendary story, a prince named Mahasttva offered himself to the starving Tigress who had several underfed cubs. This legendary episode is depicted in a stone slab and placed right next to the holy stupa.
We drive 38 kilometers, east of Kathmandu for about one and half hours to a place called Dhapasi via an ancient Newar town called Panauti with packed lunch boxes. From Dhapasi we follow the uphill trail forward to north - east direction and the trail narrows. We cross a suspension bridge and pass through many small villages to a huge rice field which will give you chance to see “How Nepali People plant and harvest the crops”. From here we hike steep uphill for about an hour to reach Namoboudha.
After lunch we will continue walking on the trails to Dhulikhel and we drive back to Kathmandu or opt to stay for the night at Dhulikhel. This Panauti Namoboudha - Dhulikhel is an excellent day hike around Kathmandu to see rural village life and Buddhist pilgrimage. Total trip 6 to 8 hours
