The Government of Nepal has announced an issue for the flight operation to Lukla. Most of the flights to Lukla will commence from Ramechhap until further notice to avoid the heavy traffic congestion in Kathmandu airport. The airport in Ramechhap is located 130km from Kathmandu (approximately 3-4 hours drive).
Namobuddha Panauti Day Hike is an awesome way to visit a holy site and discover traditional villages south-east of Kathmandu City.
Namo Buddha, the name indicates a little about Lord Buddha. And, of course, there’s a well-preserved, beautiful monastery on a hilltop. You can even feel the positive vibes passing all around the monastery. The environments are so quiet that you can’t actually make noises.
Here the monks pray and chant Mantras and are completely dedicated. It feels so reviving to see the monks singing and devoting themselves completely, and if you actually listen with closed eyes, you may get some form of flame hit that fulfills the empty soul. So the Namo Buddha is a wonderful place to visit.
You can take pictures outside the Gumba, but inside the monastery is strictly forbidden. Our hiking trail is surrounded by trees, on top of the peak, and inner calm resents.
Panauti is a lovely town situated in Kavre district and people here have been able to preserve their traditional culture despite having easily accessible, about an hour’s drive from Kathmandu by Vehicle.
On this day’s hiking, we can observe the traditional lifestyle of Newar communities mostly occupying the area. Including the Newars, other Tamang, Magar, and several Aryan groups have also called the region home.
Growing potatoes, corn, and soybean are the household’s daily routine here. Note that people make a different form of homemade liquor, particularly the Tamang people; and you’re really welcome to try it!
The most remarkable thing about this city is that people here truly feel the city rests on a single rock and is not impacted by occurrences like earthquakes. Residents here have very sensitively maintained history and tradition.
Every 12 years, Panauti conducts a very popular Panauti Mela fair. The ins and outs of the fair begin in a temple, and devotees from literally every corner of the nation come here to attend the festive environment.
All in all, Panauti is also a lovely spot to explore and look at history.
