Namo Buddha Hiking Day Trip from Kathmandu with Expert Guide

Enjoy a hike up to Namo Buddha, a beautiful point situated at an elevation of 5,740 feet (1,750 meters) in the Kavre district. It is a very important Buddhist pilgrimage site which lies about 23 miles (38 kilometers) east of Kathmandu. The stupa and shrines built in this lovely little hill mark a very ancient holy site which signifies the place where a legendary prince named Mahasattva offered himself to a starving tigress with several underfed cubs. This legendary episode is depicted in a very nice stone slab which is right next to a holy stupa.
