Dhulikhel, found in the Kathmandu valley, serves as the jumping-off point for excursions to Namo Buddha. A statue of Buddha will be waiting for you after a few hundred more steps have been taken by you.

Things to do at Namo Buddha Stupa:

  • Soak in the breathtaking natural beauty:

The majestic stupa known as Namo Buddha can be seen at the hill's peak. It is flanked on all sides by hundreds of prayer flags, which, when ruffled by the wind, release the religious petitions written on them.

Each flag color represents one of the four fundamental elements: fire, water, earth, and sky.

Spend some time there to soak up the spirituality of the location while also taking in the breathtaking scenery.

  • Experience a pleasant climate all year round:

The location of Namo Buddha is on the ground that is only marginally raised.

A large panorama of some mountains in the north may be seen from where we are. Because the southern winds bring coldness to the environment, the environment is quite relaxed during the summer months, but during the winter months, the warm, soft sun makes the place warm.

  • Study the amalgamation of cultures and celebrate diversity:

The Namo Buddha stupa is the primary focus of visitors' attention.

It is believed to be the holiest location for Buddhist pilgrims to visit because of the Buddha relic that is buried beneath the stupa.

Pilgrims of the Buddhist faith come from across the world to pay their respects to Namo Buddha, particularly those from Tibet and Nepal. 

The statue of Buddha seated in the Bhumisparsa position can be found in the courtyard of the Namo Buddha temple. Because it combines the aesthetic qualities of both Nepal and Tibet, this statue is an excellent illustration of a Nepalese and Tibetan Buddha figure.

  • Learn about the cultural significance of the site:

This stupa was built in honor of Buddha, who was just a young prince at the time and was traveling through the area. According to the local tradition, Buddha had a chance encounter with a tigress so frail that she could not care for her cubs. The prince, overcome with compassion, decided to offer himself as a sacrifice to the tigress, who promptly ate him up. Because of this act of kindness, he could advance to a higher realm of existence, which is how he came to be known as the Buddha.

  • Consider staying at the monastery:

A Tibetan monastery can be seen right next to the stupa. It has an ochre exterior lavishly painted with frescos and religious motifs that have been gilded. If you incline, you can ask a monk to take you around the monastery, and if you are courageous enough, you can even ask him to let you spend the night there. It is a profoundly enlightening experience.

In addition, the monastery also oversees a college that is primarily concerned with the study of Buddhist philosophy, as well as a practice assembly that is mostly concerned with meditation.

You must traverse the monastery in a counterclockwise orientation, spinning the prayer wheels to decipher the esoteric utterances.

  • Attend iconic rituals here:

On the fifteenth day of the fourth Tibetan month, it is customary to display a gilded bronze Buddha statue. This event takes place every year.

The day was filled with people gathering together to participate in various ceremonies.
