Another highlight of Nepal cultural and religious tour is to see Namo Buddha, where the Buddha offered his body to a starving tigress so she could feed her cub. Namobuddha (Greetings to Buddha) is situated at hill and so you could see views of Kathmandu and mountains. Namo Buddha is a sacred place for Buddhists and many pilgrimages come to both the stupa and the monastery nearby. Beside Lumbini, Pharping and Namo Buddha, you will visit popular Buddhist monasteries and stupas of Kathmandu to make your tour really interesting. We have tried to cover all Buddhist and Hindus holy places, temples, shrines of Nepal in this cultural tour.
This is a pure cultural and religious tour in Nepal, however we will drive you to show sunrise and sun set views of closest view point of Kathmandu city- you will have a great experience of sunrise and sunset from Nagarkot if weather is clear.
