Namobuddha, majestically perched at the top of Panauti, is one of the revered Buddhist pilgrimage site located in Kavre District about 35 km east of Kathmandu valley. Located at an altitude of 1750m, this shrine is one of the unsurpassable supreme sacred sites known as the Three Stupas in Nepal (Tagmo Lujin, the place where future Buddha sacrificed his body to a tigress).  Legend has it that prince named Mahasttva offered himself to hungry Tigress with her several underfed cubs. This legendry story is depicted in a very nine stone slab and placed right next to a holy stupa. The surrounding area of the stupa is populated by ethnic Tamang tribe. You will be delighted to witness multitude of temples, dramatic landscapes and diversity of people living in peace and harmony.

Dulikhel Nagarkot hiking trail starts with an hour drive to Dhulikhel which exhibits the magnificent mountain panorama before we procced for 4 hours-long hiking trip to Namobuddha. The hiking trail is fairly comfortable and goes through well-leveled path. We cross several sparsely populated settlements, magical forest of pine and rhododendron and walk along the cultivated fields of rice, mustard and millets. We conclude our hike in Nomabuddha and drive back to Kathmandu to end our short Namobuddha hiking trip in Nepal.
