Lumbini Sacred Garden:

"Let us live in Joy, never hoarding things among those who hoard. Let us live in growing Joy like the bright gods."- Sakyamuni Buddha (Dhammapada 200)

This tour will take you to the birthplace of the Sakyamuni Buddha, Siddhartha Gautam, born in 563BC on the full-moon-night, in the forest of Kapilvastu. The Kapilvastu district is located in the plains of South-West of Nepal. The site is accommodated by master plan territory within which Monasteries, Viharas, and Chaityas have been built representing the different Buddhist nations of the world. The temples of devotion are given a tranquil atmosphere by the surrounding woods, ponds and swamps. Maya Devi temple is built shading the spot where child Sidhhartha first stood as he alighted in the world. One finds it very soothing to cycle within the territory visiting monasteries and temples. There are quiet spots under the trees where one can meditate without any external disturbances. Visitors can also enjoy birding in the woods, ponds and swamps. The area accommodates some of the rarest species of birds like Sarus Crane. This site is of archeological interest, too. Visitors can extend or shorten the trip as per their holiday plan, for the site offers some interesting cultural walk in the local village of the plains. The Lumbini is for all seasons, yet from October till May are the best months to visit. We take group as well as individual booking in this tour. One can drive to the site or take a flight to Bhairahawa and drive. We have more cultural and spiritual sites in Nepal. Please, tell us your priorities we tailor ten trip itinerary for you!

 

Mt. Kailash & Manasarovar Kora:

Location: West of Tibetan Himalayas

Durantion:

Highest Altitude: 6,675m

Best Time To Visit: June to September

Mount Kailash Himal stands in the western region of Chinese province of occupied Tibet, in Asia. It is the Gateway to Nirvana not only for the religious people but also for the Alpine adventurers, for this is the land of Divine Madman Drukpa Kunley and it is called the Roof of the World.

Mount Kailash, which is believed to have been formed 30 million years ago when Himalayas were in their early stage of formation, is one of the most revered places in the Himalayas. Spread out on the Tibetan plateau, beside Mount Kailash is the giant lake of shifting colours - Lake Mansarovar. It is believed that Brahma, the creator, had a mind ('Man') for the creation of a lake ('Sarovar'), hence its name.

A pilgrimage to Mount Kailash and a bath in the Manasarovar is believed to bring about salvation (Moksha) for those who are stumbling at the Gate of Salvation because of their corrupt KARMAS. For Hindu conservatives it is more like ticket to salvation, just as the ticket that were sold in the Middle Age by the Pope in Christianity.

 

Manasarovar Lake

The circumference of Mansarovar is 88-km, its depth is 90m and total area is 320-sq-kms. The lake freezes in the winters and melts only in spring. It looks unbelievably fascinating on moonlit nights when an ethereal ambience pervades the atmosphere. The circumference of Rakshas Tal, also known as "Ravan Kund", is 122-km. A 6-km long natural channel - "Gangachhu" - connects Manas with Rakshas Tal.
