TRIP OVERVIEW LUMBINI TOUR (8 DAYS)

The Lumbini is most attraction place in Nepal.Buddhist literatures cited that Lumbini is the place where the newly born Prince Siddhartha took his first seven steps and uttered an epoch-making message to the suffering humanity.

Maya Devi, the queen of Sakya King Suddhodan of Kapilvastu, while was passing through the Lumbini Garden, on the way to her maternal home Devadaha, in the day of Vaisakha Poornima(the full moon-day of My 623 BC), took bath in the Pushkarni (the Sacred Pond) and proceeded towards the north. Suddenly, she felt lever pain, took decent support of a tree branch and holding it, she gave birth to the Crown Prince Siddhartha Gautam.

The classical texts of Suttanipata, Mahaparinibana Sotta and Divyavadana Lumbini mentioned that the Buddha advised his followers to visit Lumbini at once- the area which crossed by three rivers, the Harahawa, Ghoraha and Tela. The area has a sub-tropical monsoon climate with a warm wet season.
