Overview

Namobuddha is a holy site for Buddhist and lies in the Kavre district at an altitude of 1800 m, about 38 km east of Kathmandu. On this one day hike to Namobuddha, we hike around the stupa and shrines build up in this lovely little hill significantly marked an ancient holy site.

Legends holds that a prince named Mahasattva offered himself to starving Tigress and its several under feed cubs. This episode is depicted in a very nice stone slab and is placed right next to the stupa.

The hike starts after we drive 35 km east of Kathmandu for about one and a half hours to a place called Dhapasi via an ancient Newar town Panauti with packed lunch Box.

From Dhapasi, we follow the uphill trail towards the north-east and the trail narrows. We cross a suspension bridge and pass through many small villages to huge rice fields which gives us a chance to see how Nepali people plant and harvest the crop (during appropriate season). From here we hike steep uphill for about an hour to reach Namobuddha and the total hiking hours in 5 hours.

After lunch and strolling around for some time, we drive down to Dhulikhel from about 30 minutes and one hour.

Namobuddha Valley & Monastery

My husband & I and a friend we made on a G Adventures tour from India to Nepal did the day trip from Kathmandu to Namobuddha Valley with guide Sujan.
We had experienced some wonderful sites throughout India & Nepal and this day trip was a fantastic way to end our holiday in Nepal.
Sujan & the driver met us promptly at our hotel in a nice air conditioned four wheel drive.
Sujan spoke excellent English, he was very friendly & informative. He had bottled water & tadt apples for us. He was from the Namobuddha Valley so he knew the area very well & we had a beautiful lunch in a small restaurant with amazing views cooked by his aunts.
The views were spectacular. We were blessed with a clear day.
The monastery was beautiful.
The driver was very safe, made sure we were comfortable with the air conditioning & took a great detour home (after checking eith us) to avert traffic.
The company has other tours. I would use them again. Sujan told us of homestay trips which we are keen to try.
