OVERVIEW:

40 KM away from Kathmandu lies one of holiest pilgrimage site in the word for Buddhist. Legends say a young prince, Mahasattva, ( in some versions, reincarnation of Buddha himself) while walking in a forest with his brothers saw a tigress with 5 cubs she had just given birth to. The tigress was so hungry that she could barely move. Overcome with compassion, he began to feed the tigress and her cubs by cutting his flesh. Later when other brothers came searching for him, found only his bones and hairs. A stupa was built on top of these remains , now known as NAMO BUDDHA. A small shrine a few minutes' walk uphill from the stupa contains statues of the prince together with the tigress and her cubs. This week we will take you to this holy site to pay homage to the Great prince, Mahasattva. Our hike will begin from Batase Danda,Dhulikhel. we will hike for around 2 and half hour on mild elevation towards Namo Buddha passing through Batase Gaun. We will hike in the scenic trail of Shankhu village. We will stop near the stupa for lunch and introduction-cum-entertainment program. We will finally hike down to Kavre Bhanjyang where our chartered bus will pick us.
