overview

The Kathmandu and Lumbini Buddhism tour has been designed by our team, at Accessible Adventures to take you on a meditational odyssey starting from a visit to the places in and around the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu and the capital of Buddhism namely Lumbini. Lumbini is listed under the UNESCO World heritage sites and still is in its well-preserved state since a very long time, which is why internal and external tourists love it.

We start our journey with a short tour to Swayambhunath temple, the monkey temple, and then we move to Dhulikhel where we can see beautiful art crafts and traditional houses. We also have a short hike to Namobuddha in Dhulikhel and then proceed to Bhaktapur and Patan to witness the different monuments and important structures; then we move to Lumbini. Lumbini has to offer valuable historical and cultural heritage, including the Ashoka Pillar, significant stupas and monasteries and temples. The Ashoka pillar was set up by the Indian Emperor Ashoka to commemorate the Lord Buddha's birth. We will also visit the famous Kopan monastery.
