Day to day itinerary

Day 01: KATHMANDU- LUMBINI Since it is long by driving, we recommend flight to Bhairahawa Airport and drive to Birth place of Buddha (Lumbini). It is about 45 min flight to Tarai region of Nepal.

Lumbini lies in the southern Terai plains of Nepal and is about 300 kilometers Southwest of Kathmandu. It is the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautam Buddha and is therefore regarded as a sacred pilgrimage site for Buddhists. In 250 BC, Emperor Ashoka built a large stone pillar containing an inscription about the birth of the Buddha. Lumbini bears not only historical and religious significance but also cultural significance. Lumbini Garden, Maya Devi Temple, Tara Foundation, World Peace Pagoda, China Temple, Thai Monastery, Burmese (Myanmar) Temple, Nepal Buddha Temple and Dharmaswami Buddhist monastery are the major attractions of Lumbini. There is a museum and a research center for Buddhism. It is also considered an ideal birding destination as it houses variety of rare bird species. Many high quality hotels, restaurants and lodges are available in Lumbini.

With International support, Lumbini is being developed as the supreme Buddhist pilgrimage and a symbol of world peace. Many countries have built and are building temples, monasteries and stupa near the sacred garden in the International monastery Zone as part of the global initiative to promote Lumbini. The shrines reflect the architectural tradition of the respective countries which gives Lumbini an “International feel” and in hence it’s message of universal friendship and brotherhood.

To the west of Lumbini lies Tilaurakot, the palace area of King Suddhodhan, father of Lord Buddha. Buddha spent 29 years of his life here. Many archeological ruins and findings make the visit worthwhile.
