Namobuddha Biking

Do the revered pilgrimage on bike

Kathmandu 82 Booked

Pass through local villages and make your way up to the legendary Namobuddha on bike

  • Embark on the revered Buddhist Pilgrimage and see the Namobuddha – by mountain bike!

  • Begin your journey from Dhulikhel, a Newari town blessed with incredible views of the Himalaya

  • Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant on top of mountain

  • Get to Panauti, a picturesque old city, en route back to Kathmandu

What We Love:

According to legend, there once was a prince named Mahasattya who offered himself to a starving tigress and her baby cubs. Today, the Namobuddha, situated at an altitude of approx. 2,500m, marks the commemorative site of this incredible tale – a remarkable story to keep in mind as you bike to the statue from Dhulikhel. Journey through paved roads, rough trails, and rice terraces. Once at the Namobuddha, take in the grandeur of the temple, stupa and shrines on-site. Typically a multi-day pilgrimage, this biking adventure takes you through the same local villages in a single day. You'll also be served lunch, before continuing on your journey to Panauti, and heading back to Kathmandu.

This is a beautiful place with a lot of Buddhist history! It is said to be the place where the Buddha in his previous life offered his body out of pure compassion to 5 hungry baby-tigers. The 5 tigers became his students in the next life and the tiger mother became his birth-mother! Not far from here is also an old and previous Stupa!
