Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour in Kathmandu
Discover Nepal’s Spiritual Gems

Experience the spiritual essence of Buddhism on our one-day Buddhist Pilgrimage Tour in Kathmandu. While Nepal is predominantly Hindu, Buddhism holds significant influence and has deep roots in the country. Explore the hidden courtyards, ornate shrines, and ancient stupas that radiate a serene and divine energy throughout the city. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Swayambunath and Boudhanath, as well as the renowned Kopan Monastery, known for its teachings on Tibetan Buddhism.

Our enlightening journey begins at Swayambunath, affectionately known as the Monkey Temple. Ascend the endless staircase to the hilltop, taking in the panoramic view of Kathmandu and, on clear days, the Langtang mountain range in the distance. Beware of the mischievous monkeys that roam the area! The experience at Swayambunath is truly captivating, with monkeys leaping from the stupa and the scent of incense and butter lamps permeating the air. Learn about the profound symbolism of Swayambunath as you circumambulate the stupa.

Next, we venture north to Kopan Monastery, nestled on a picturesque hilltop. This revered monastery attracts visitors from around the world seeking knowledge in Buddhist philosophy and meditation. It is renowned as one of the best places in Nepal to delve into the principles of Tibetan Buddhism. If you’re interested, we can arrange a retreat or series of courses for you to deepen your understanding of Buddhism and meditation.

Our final destination is Boudhanath, Asia’s largest stupa and a place that will captivate your heart. As you walk the tranquil paths around the stupa, you’ll feel a profound sense of peace and tranquility that transcends words. Away from the bustling main road, Boudhanath serves as a sanctuary for many. Visit in the late afternoon to avoid the crowds and witness elderly Tibetan devotees whispering mantras while spinning prayer wheels, creating positive karma. Immerse yourself in the serenity of this sacred place, where the sound of spinning prayer wheels becomes the predominant sound, drowning out the noise of the world.

Throughout the tour, our knowledgeable guide will provide insights into the symbolism and significance of these Buddhist sites. After completing your kora (circumambulation) at Boudhanath, take some time to explore the surrounding shops, restaurants, and monasteries, which add to the unique ambiance of the area.

Join us on this unforgettable day tour that allows you to feel the divine presence of Buddhism in the heart of Kathmandu. Experience Nepal’s most sacred, ancient, and captivating Buddhist sites in one remarkable journey.
