"Let us live in Joy, never hoarding things among those who hoard. Let us live in growing Joy like the bright gods." - Buddha (Dhammapada 200)

This tour takes you to the birthplace of the Sakyamuni Buddha, Siddhartha Gautam, born in 563BC on the full-moon-night, in the forest of Kapilvastu. The Kapilvastu district is located in the plains of South-West of Nepal. The site is accommodated by master plan territory within which Monasteries, Viharas, and Chaityas have been built representing the different Buddhist nations of the world. The temples of devotion are given a tranquil atmosphere by the surrounding woods, ponds and swamps. Maya Devi temple is built shading the spot where child Sidhhartha first stood as he alighted in the world. One finds it very soothing to cycle within the territory visiting monasteries and temples. There are quiet spots under the trees where one can meditate without any external disturbances.

Visitors can also enjoy birding in the woods, ponds and swamps. The area accommodates some of the rarest species of birds like Sarus Crane. This site is of archaeological interest, too. Visitors can extend or shorten the trip as per their holiday plan, for the site offers some interesting cultural walk in the local village of the plains. The Lumbini is for all seasons, yet from October till May are the best months to visit. We take group as well as individual booking in this tour. One can drive to the site or take a flight to Bhairahawa. And Chitwan Jungle Safari is, yet, another attraction in this tour after Lumbini.
