Tour itinerary

Day 1

Parping village, Dakshinkali temple, Padmasambhava cave

We arrive in Kathmandu, meet with the tour leader at Tribhuvan airport and leave for the village of Parping, 30 km from the capital. We check into a hotel there and take a walk through the village streets, observing the very simple local life.

We go to the famous Hindu temple Dakshinkali, built in honor of the goddess Kali. During the holidays, animals are still sacrificed here in front of the statue of the warlike goddess.

We head to the caves near the village to see the place where the great teacher Padmasambhava meditated. He brought Buddhism from India to Nepal and Tibet in the 8th century A.D.. In Nepal, he is often called Guru Rinpoche. Buddhists believe that the cave holds the prints of his feet, forehead and knees.

Day 4-5

Lumbini, The birthplace of Buddha, Ancient and modern Buddhist temples

Today we leave for Lumbini (about 4-5 hours on the way), where the founder of Buddhism, Buddha Shakyamuni, was born. We check into a hotel in the village of Rumindei.

In the morning we head to the Lumbini complex to see modern Buddhist temples built by architects from different Buddhist countries on a huge territory. We meditate under the Bodhi tree. Buddhists believe that it grows on the very place where Buddha Shakyamuni was born more than 2500 years ago.

We learn more about the history of Lumbini while inspecting the excavations of ancient monasteries and stupas, and visiting a small museum.
