The Great Buddhist Master Trail

The Great Buddhist Master Trail

A five day trail away from the crowds and the classic tourist trails.

The route starts at Panauti and ends at Lubhu. It runs through Namobuddha, Kot Timal and Narayansthan. It also passes the stronghold Sindhuli Gadhi, the village of Khopasi and the Timal caves, a place of religious importance likely to become a center of pilgrimage, as it is believed that that was the place chosen to meditate in the 7th century by Padmasambhava who founded the tradition of Nyingma Tibetan Buddhism.

Dare to explore the "Bodhi Chitta Garden Trail" and Yangbel (2,100 m / 6,890 ft) until you reach the highest point of this route, 3,100 m / 10,170 ft above sea level, in the section known as the "Mahabharat Rhododendron Trail ". There you see in front of you some of the most famous peaks of the Himalayas. Including Dhaulagiri (8,167 m / 26,795 ft), Makalu (8,481 m / 27,825 ft) and the roof of the world, the Everest, with its incredible 8,848 m / 29,029 ft.

This way you discover Terai, a region dominated by a vast plain which serves as a carpet part for one of the most iconic mountain ranges of the planet.

Another attraction that offers this MOSTPOINT is to meet the Tamang, an indigenous tribe that with all generosity, will share their traditions, customs and ancestral culture with you. The religion of the residing Buddhist community there is a fusion of Lamaism and Shamanism. You will also meet other local ethnic groups that allows you to approach the social, economic and employment situation in the country.

What else is there
Located just over 30 km from Kathmandu, Panauti surprises you with its medieval character, somewhat melancholic but always welcoming. Visit Durbar Square and the Indreswor temple.
In Lubhu you can admire the quality and variety of its tissues, since it is one of the largest centers of textile production of the country.
And of course, you can not miss Kathmandu, the administrative capital of the country that, despite being affected by the earthquake in 2015, continues to offer thousand and one corners to discover.

Notes
This trail can be hiked out throughout the year.
