Know More about this tour

Day 1: Drive from Kathmandu to Lumbini. 
In the first day, we will drive from Kathmandu to Lumbini which will take 7-8 hours. Use your time to make a cursory glance of Lumbini, specially its monastic zone, where different nations from around the world have made artistically exquisite monasteries modeled after their own architectural traditions.
Day 2: Lumbini Exploration
We make a detailed exploration of Lumbini today. The center of curiosity is, of course, the Maya Devi temple. The temple houses the nativity sculpture, depicting Buddhas birth, and the marker stone, which pinpoints the location where Buddha first touched the ground. Since the marker stone and its foundation date back to the 3rd century B.C. and since it is mentioned in the Ashokan Pillar as a marker of the precise location of Buddhas birth, archeologists point to it as very reliable evidence. Outside the temple is the Puskarni pond, where Maya Devi had taken a bath before delivery and where Buddha was given the first bath. And then there are the ruins of the Stupas dating from 8th century A.D. to 3rd century B.C. And if you get enough time afterwards, there are plenty of monasteries built by different nations in the monastic zone. You can also consider making a visit to nearby villages, where you will notice the truly peasant life and culture of the people living in the plains.
 
Day 3: Visit Gotihawa and Tilaurakot via Kudan and return to Lumbini
Each of these places, namely, Gotihawa, Tilaurakot and Kudan, holds special significance. Gotihawa is believed to be the birthplace of Krakuchanda Buddha, the former incarnation of Guatama the Buddha. Its importance, like that of Lumbini, was recognized by the ancient Indian emperor Ashoka who had built a pillar here as well. You can see a lot of brick remains of stupas and monasteries in this village. Kudans importance cannot be simply exaggerated because it was the place where King Suddhodhana had met Buddha after his enlightenment. Finally Tilaurakot was the capital of King Suddhodhanas kingdom in the ancient time. It was the place where Buddha had spent 29 years of his life.

Day 4: Drive from Lumbini to Devadaha and Ramagrama, and back to Kathmandu.
After the Breakfast Drive back to Kathmandu, it will take about 7 hours drive, over night in Thamle

Day 5: International Departure
We drop you at the international airport in Kathmandu and pay you farewell for your return journey.
