Introduction to Namobuddha Hiking

Namobuddha Hiking is famous for day hiking near Kathmandu Valley. Namo Buddha, by this name we can guess Lord Buddha is related to it. Yes, there is an artistic, well-preserved, and beautiful monastery situated on the hill. Namobuddha Hike is a great way to explore the traditional villages and holy sites near the southeast of Kathmandu city.

This is a great place to spend your day in a quiet natural environment away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Being close to the valley and easy, Namobuddha hiking is suitable for all age groups. This can be a great option even if you don’t want to go very far and high altitude. For those who have come with small children or suffer from altitude sickness but want the mountain experience of Nepal, this short and easy Namobuddha Hiking is also a good option.

After one hour drive, you reach Dhulikhel from where your Namobuddha Hiking starts. Dhulikhel is an ancient Newari city where you can see traditional old houses and temples. Dhulikhel provides you a unique opportunity to explore the beauty of nature, rural Nepal, and wonderful Mountain View.

Catch the beautiful view of magnificent Mountains

The trail is full of comfortable green fields and beautiful ancient settlements where people are still farmers and follow the way of traditional life. On a clear day, this place offers ample opportunities to observe the magnificent views of the Himalayan range like Gaurishankar, Langtang, Ganesh, Dorje Lakpa, etc.

Frequently asked questions about this trip

What is altitude sickness?
