We will continue crossing the suspension bridge, hiking up and down, enjoying and encountering with lovely village children. After approximately 3 hours walking, we will arrive into Namobuddha.
Namobuddha is Buddhist site situated on the top of the hill. This site offers beautiful monasteries with exotic Buddhist architecture and paintings, where hundreds of Monks reside and study. This hill offers the panoramic Himalayan views, towering and sun-kissed green hills, stunning sunrise, and incredible views of the valley and villages.
In the evening, we join with monks for Prayers inside the Monastery. It’s a perfect place and moment to meditate. Afterward, you will have a dinner with the Monks as part of their routine and ritual. This carries some discipline to their ways and will be a different and new experience for every foreigner. Overnight at Guesthouse owned by Monastery.
Day 04: Namobudhha - Dulikhel hiking and drive to Nagarkot
We can’t find a better place than this for Yoga and Meditation. First, it’s a place where Lord Buddha himself made his visit and the location is absolutely brilliant in terms of nature, view and historical facts. If you want to join with Monks for the morning prayers, we can join. After breakfast, it is time to explore the Buddhist monuments, shrines and go to the top to have the excellent and spectacular sceneries. It is here we will stay in deep meditation for a while.
We get out from the monastery and start hiking until we reach Dulikhel. From there, will have a private car to go to Nagarkot. If possible, we will try to catch the sunset view from Nagarkot. Overnight at hotel inclusive of bed and breakfast.

This is also the perfect place to meditate and get lost in the serene nature. The view and Yoga make our morning fruitful and blissful. After that we will have breakfast, check out from the hotel and head back to Kathmandu.
In Kathmandu, we will visit three significant sites:
Boudhanath Stupa: Buddhist Pilgrimage site and imposing landmark of Kathmandu. It is also commonly known as the Mini Tibet and has several surrounding monasteries. The Massive Stupa is considered the largest stupa in southern Asia.
Pasupatinath Temple: One of the Hindu Pilgrimage sites of Nepal dedicated to Lord Shiva-God of Gods, listed in world heritage sites. The most interesting thing to see for the foreigners is a live cremation center.
Syowambhunath Temple: This temple is famously known as the Monkey temple among the foreigners. It is situated at the top of the hill, from where we can have the complete view of Kathmandu valley and panoramic mountain views if the weather is clear. Moreover, this place is related to the origin of Kathmandu valley. It is a special pilgrimage site for Buddhists and the grandiose Buddhist Stupa is the main monument found here.
