The Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour is especially designed Buddhism followers. Also, one with interest in Buddhism can book this exquisite trip. This special trip takes you all the way to Lumbini, where Lord Siddhartha Gautam Buddha was born. The religion gets its name from the name of the Lord.
Gautam Buddha was born roughly 2,500 years ago in Lumbini. The holy site lies in the southern part of the country. He was believed to pave the path of peace and strictly discouraged violence. During his teen age, Gautam Buddha was believed to get lost in search of enlightment through meditation. He meditated under a Pipal tree for months and years without any clothes and remaining hungry until he found himself enlightened. Since then Buddhism followed the path of peace and non-violence.
This trip merely focuses on the holy site of Lumbini and several others Buddhist holy places like Boudha, Soyambhunath and Stupas. Every year followers of Buddhism from several countries like India, China, Thailand, Sri-lanka, Japan, Hongkong and Myanmar come to Nepal to visit the birthplace of Gautam Buddha. Our especially designed trip lets us access the holy site of birthplace of Buddha and several 2,000 years old impressive stupas of Gumbas and Boudhas.
