Namobuddha Hike

Namobuddha Hike

Namo Buddha means 'Greetings to the Buddha'. It is the symbol of human sacrifice at the highest possible level. You can drive up to Dhulikhel or Panauti from Kathmandu and then hike up to Namo Buddha. It is situated on a hill above Panauti. The old Newari village Sankhu, the terraced farmlands, superb mountain views, a visit to the beautiful Buddhist stupa of Namobuddha and the serene temples in Panauti, like the Vajrajogini temples, are the main highlights of this trek. There is an amazing legend related to the Buddha, which is commemorated by an ancient stone slab and a stupa with the all-seeing eyes of Lord Buddha. Namo Buddha is a good place for meditation as well. This town is relatively untouched, but festivals preserving the tradition of the indigenous Newars are held here.
