Experience the Serenity of Lumbini: A Buddhist Pilgrimage for Spiritual Enlightenment around Kathmandu and Lumbini

Embark on a transformative journey to Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, and discover true peace and spiritual enlightenment. Our Lumbini tour is designed for travelers seeking solace and a glimpse into the paradise that shaped the life of the enlightened one. This sacred realm of the Shakya not only offers spiritual enlightenment but also provides a comforting and blissful experience in its serene and tranquil ambiance. Recognizing its significance, UNESCO declared Lumbini a World Heritage Site in 1997 AD.

Located in the Terai region, approximately 250 km south-west of Nepal's capital city, Kathmandu, Lumbini holds profound historical and religious importance. Gautama Buddha, known as the light of Asia, the apostle of peace, compassion, non-violence, and brotherhood, was born under a sal tree in Lumbini during the full moon day of Baisakh in 623 BC. This sacred place remains the epicenter of Buddhism, attracting pilgrims and seekers from around the world.

During your Lumbini tour, you'll have the opportunity to explore various Buddhist monasteries representing different cultures, such as Nepalese, Chinese, Thai, and more. Immerse yourself in the teachings of Buddhism and gain insightful knowledge throughout this enlightening journey.

Lumbini's significance was long overlooked and neglected, but recent exploration and excavation efforts revealed the presence of a remarkable brick and sandstone sculpture within the temple, depicting the moment of Buddha's birth. Today, numerous beautiful Buddhist temples built by various countries stand tall in Lumbini, underscoring its international significance.

As part of the Lumbini Buddha tour, you'll also visit Tilaurakot, where Buddha spent the first 29 years of his life in Kapilvastu. Additionally, we'll include visits to some popular tour destinations in Kathmandu, such as Swayambhunath Stupa and Boudhanath Stupa, further enhancing the memorable experience of your Lumbini tour with Kathmandu.

Join us on this transformative journey to Lumbini, where spiritual enlightenment and inner peace await. Discover the profound teachings of Buddhism and immerse yourself in the tranquil beauty of this sacred historical site, ensuring an unforgettable and enriching experience.
