Dhulikhel- NamoBuddha

Kathmandu Valley

Easy-Moderate

Dhulikhel, at 1550m, is a popular, interesting small town to view the Himalayan. There are some beautiful old buildings in this town. The main place to view the mountains is the parade ground on the ridge a little east of the center of town.

In the main square there is the Harisiddhi Temple and Narayan Temple, both Vishnu temples.

NAMOBUDDHA - A pleasant fairly easy ride goes to Namobuddha (Namro or Namura), south of Dhulikhel, where there is a Buddhist stupa. It is pleasant mountain biking doing this circuit.

The story about this place states that a Buddha saw a tigress almost dead because of starvation and could not feed her cubs. The Buddha led the tigress eat him. This is a stone tablet higher up on the hill from the stupa, which is said to mark the place where this event took place. There is a big festival here in November.
