Lumbini Garden --> Map

The birthplace of the Lord Buddha is one of the most important holy places for Buddhists. King Ashoka, after uniting the Indian sub-continent, made a pilgrimage here in the 3rd century BC and dedicated a stone pillar which remains to this day. There are also records of pilgrimages by renowned Chinese Buddhist monks up to 7th century. Lumbini Sacred Garden has 22 monasteries established by 15 countries. Lumbini became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, and a development project is being carried out under a master plan designed by renowned architect Kenzo Tange. Lumbini today is a holy place where Buddhists from all over the world come to make a pilgrimage in pursuit of peace of mind.


Nature of Lumbini

Lumbini has various kinds of animals, birds, insects and flowers. Cranes are protected in a sanctuary around our hotel, and many types of wild birds will attract your interest. There is a curious animal which looks like a deer, but is called a "Blue bull".

You will land at the international airport of Kathmandu, the capital city, located in a valley in the center of Nepal. At 1300 meters in altitude, on a clear day you can see the Himalaya mountain range. With both Hindu and Buddhist influences, the historical architecture of Kathmandu is a sight to behold. In 1979 the entire valley was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.



The eastern portion of the Himalayan mountain range, including the southern slope of Mount Everest - the world's tallest mountain at 8,848 meters - is located in Nepal. There is a tourist flight from Kathmandu that circles Mount Everest, an unforgettable experience. The local flight from Kathmandu to Lumbini takes you high above the clouds over spectacular mountains in the Himalayan range.
