Dhulikhel Namobuddha day hiking is a popular hiking trip in Kavre district of Nepal. Namobuddha is the biggest monastery in Kavre and Dhulikhel is the popular view point of Kavre District. Dhulikhel to Namobuddha hiking is an easy and beautiful hiking route which offers a pleasurable view of hillside terrace farm, Himalayan range and Buddhist stupa on the summit. The terrace farms are decorated with seasonal crops like rice, mustard and millet. It is believed that a Buddhist prince (7th reincarnation of Lord Buddha) offered his body to a hungry tigress so that she could feed her cubs. The offering of his own body by the prince at this very place makes it a holy pilgrimage site for Buddhists.

The day tour starts with an hour drive towards Dhulikhel from Kathmandu. The ancient Newari town at Dhulikhel reflects the traditional culture of the people residing there and the view point offers the spectacular view of Himalayan ranges. After 3-4 hours of hike we arrive at the famous and sacred Namobuddha Monastery surrounded by the Tamang settlements. After the excursion around the monastery, short meditation and sighting the splendid view of Gaurishanker, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh, Langtang and Rolwaling Himalayan range we hike back to Dhulikhel and drive back to Kathmandu.
