Buddhist Cultural Tour

8 Days

First Environmental Trekking P. Ltd. has been organizing Buddhist Cultural Tour since its establishment. Buddhist Cultural Tour helps you to explore the history of the Lord Buddha. You will visit the birthplace of the Lord Buddha as well as some Buddhist stupas.

Nepal is the birthplace of Sakya Muni Buddha. He was born as Prince Siddhartha Gautama, in the sixth century on the kingdom of Kosala to King Suddhodana & Queen Mayadevi. The kingdom of Kosala in the modern day is known as Lumbini, Kapilvastu and is situated in Nepal. Gautama Buddha was born as a Kshatriya (warrior clan) prince but gave it all up to seek enlightenment for all beings. Gautama Buddha is now the primary figure for all the people following Buddhism as well as for all other people who follow his teachings and is regarded holy by all people. His teachings, which were first transmitted orally, have now been inscribed and translated in possibly every language of the world. So, being a birthplace of Lord Buddha, Lumbini is considered the holiest site for Buddhist religion. Every year millions of people visit this site to see the birthplace of Lord Buddha as well as the Ashok Stupa and various monasteries.
