Nepal Buddhist Circuit Tour Itinerary
Day 1 :
Arrive Kathmandu. You will be picked up at the airport and transferred to your hotel.
Day 2 :
In the morning, after breakfast you will head off to Boudhanath. Boudhanath is a massive Stupa which lies in the outskirts of Kathmandu about 11 km away from the city centre. It is believed that this stupa was built by the Lichchhavis but many historians disagree on this fact. This dome shaped Stupa represents the mind of the Buddha and is today one of the most significant pilgrimage destination for Buddhists.
After visiting Boudhanath, we shall visit the Kopan Monastery. The Kopan Monastery was established by Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rimpoche in 1970 as a center of Buddhist Teachings. In the evening we will return back to Hotel.
Day 3 :
Today you will visit Namobuddha. This monastery lies about 45 km away to the east of Kathmandu. It takes a two-hour drive to reach there. It is widely believed that the Lord Buddha, during his 7th reincarnation, offered his body to a hungry Tigress and its cubs at this place. This is considered a great act of mercy and kindness and has ever since attracted millions of people to this spot. You will return back to the hotel in the evening.
Day 4 :
After breakfast, you will head for Pharping monastery. This monastery is situated at the south of Kathmandu valley. It is believed that this is the spot where Guru Rimpoche (Saint Padmasambhava) attained level of a Mahamudra Vidyadhara. Some Buddhists also believe that this is the spot where Milerapa (the deity of hard work) took shelter in a
cave one night. Pharping has numerous monasteries and temples including an important Vajrayogini temple and the Palyul Retreat Centre, which is the residence of Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche and home to the Rigpa Shedra. You will return back to our hotel in the evening.
Day 5 :
Swayambhunath is one of the oldest pilgrimage site in Nepal. People have been praying at this place more than two thousand years. This great temple lies atop a hillock within the valley. Many believe that the Lichchhavis constructed the stupa but no one is really sure. Its establishment and construction is shrouded in the mists of time. The Swayambhunath complex consists of a giant Stupa, a large ensemble of shrines and temples, and also includes a Tibetan monastery, a museum and a library. This site has two access points: from the east there is a long stairway, claimed to have 365 steps, leading directly to the main platform of the temple, and a car road around the hill from the south leading to the southwest entrance. You will return back to the hotel in the afternoon. The evening will be free for leisure activities.
