5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

A beautiful place, quiet, with and increadible view just outside of Kathmandu. There is a Bhudist Monastery near the temple and the whole place worth the visit.

“Buddhist pilgrimage tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Namo Buddha is fourth most important Buddhist sanctuary after Lumbini, Swoyambhunath, Bouddhanath in Nepal. Situated in Kavre District just 10 km east of Panauti, the stupa is believed to have been built on the bones and hair of the prince Mahasattva who believed to be the former incarnation of Shakyamuni Buddha. Legend has it three sons of king Mahasattva went for a walk in the forest when they saw a tigress who has just given birth to five cubs. For lack of food the cubs were almost dying which was emotional and heartrending that the youngest son prince Mahasattva sacrificed himself to feed the cubs. On hearing their son´s greatness, king Mahasattva is said to have built a stupa in the name of his son. Namo Buddha basically means “homage of Buddha”. Pilgrim who come here offer their respects by lying down on the ground in reverence and hang pieces of their hair and cloth on the tree. Namo Buddha offers plenty of accommodation facilities including hotels and guest houses. Tourists can also opt to see monks life and enjoy living with them at Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery recently built at the site. There is a stone engraving up the hill depicting the story of Prince Mahasattva which is believed to be exact spot where he sacrificed himself.

“Worth the the walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Namobuddha is a 3 hour walk from Dhulikhel.

Even if you are not so impressed with the final location, the walk itself is superb. Panoramic views of the Himalayas. On a clear day just magical.

The track is relatively easy to follow, but it is no Sunday stroll, make sure that you take enough water. If you get a bit lost just ask one of the locals, they all know the way.

“The Hike to Namo Buddha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

We hiked from Dulkhel (Tashidalek Guest House) to Namo Buddha. The owner of the guest house, Prem, is a knowledgeable and helpful guide and pointed us in the right direction. It is said that "it's not the destination, it's the journey" that makes it beautiful and so it was with our hike. Walking through undulating dusty hills we came across small villages of welcoming Nepali, children running to us chanting their mantra "Namaste - gimme money" and surreal scenery that is now embedded in our minds keeping the flame of wanderlust burning brightly. The Monastery is situated on many acres with surrounding prayer flags, restaurant (small one) and monks in their robes the colour of ox blood. Many photo opportunities for the amateur photographer to catch. The hike took approximately 3 hours with water stations along the way or cha houses making the journey more pleasant. The final destination was like a jewel in the sand and we explored the area along with bus loads of giggling school children.

“Romantic & memorable place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

It's by chance that I visited this temple on the birthday of Dalai Latma, July 6, 2013. I joined the birthday ceremony by Tibet monks there. The cake share was a good memory of the trip. The journey along the way to the temple was also beautiful. The temple itself was so beautiful and romantic in the hill. Should climb to the cave where legendary, the tigress ate the prince, sat under the tree and reflected to the legend...It's worthy to pay a visit!
