Overview of Lumbini Tour

Lumbini Tour is the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha – Messenger of Peace. Lord Buddha was born in Nepal in 623 B.C. As a prince, his mother, Maya Devi, was going to her maternal town. The Lumbini tour is one of the four holy places of Buddhism.

It is located in the Kapilvastu district of Nepal, about 306 km west of Kathmandu. The Lumbini is a pilgrimage tour that also displays the tremendous archaeological triumph of humanity.

Lumbini contains 62 archaeological sites that exhibit different events during and after Buddha’s life. It has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. However, The Mayadevi temple is a significant ancient heritage that houses the old idol of Mayadevi, the Birthmarker stone, and the ruins from the 3rd  century B.C. to the 7th century B.C.

The Birth Marker stone precisely marks the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Emperor Ashoka inscribed and erected the Ashoka Pillar in 249 BC behind and to the west of the Mayadevi Temple.

The pillar and inscription are the testaments of Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha. The holy and ancient Pushkirini Lake is situated near the Ashoka Pillar. It is believed that Mayadevi had bathed in the lake before giving birth to Lord Buddha.

The Lumbini Museum preserves historical artifacts and has an extensive collection of Mauryan and Kushana coins, religious manuscripts, terracotta fragments, and stone and metal sculptures related to Buddhism.

The eternal World Peace flame in the center of the Lumbini garden, which flows continuously 24 hours a day, is also a significant attraction. During the  Lumbini Tour, Tilaurakot, Gotihawa, Kudan, Niglihara, Devdaha, and Sagarhawa are other famous religious and archaeological sites.

Lumbini Tour Cost

Various factors cause fluctuation in the Lumbini tour cost. One of the major factors that affect the cost of a tour is the size of the group. We are providing discounts in large numbers to groups. Even if you are solo we still manage our best to provide you a discount. But a large number of groups get more discounts than small groups or solo travelers. 

Another factor that varies overall cost is the duration of the trip. Generally, the tour is completed within 3 days including the drive and exploration of Lumbini, and then return to Kathmandu. But if you want to extend your package by adding some activities and exploration areas, we are ready for that too. In such cases, the cost increases, and fluctuation in cost arises. 

Your preference for transportation also determines your price for the Lumbini Tour. you have the option to travel either by airplane, bus or by car. If you choose to travel by airplane the cost increases as it is an expensive mode of transportation. If you choose a bus it is the most budget friendly. And cars are also expensive but not more expensive than airplanes. 

We provide you with accommodation at the finest hotel in Lumbini. Still, if you prefer to stay in a more luxurious one your cost increases. Generally, we include your accommodation on your trekking package but if you desire a luxurious one the cost increases.

Gautam Buddha

Siddhartha Gautman, commonly known as Lord Gautamn Buddha is a leader of spirituality and founder of the religion of Buddhism. The exact birthdate of Lord Buddha is still unknown but the people celebrate his birth date on Buddha Purnima which falls in April or May and there is a belief that he was born in the 5th century BCE in Lumbini Nepal.

Siddhartha Gautama was born into a Royal family and his father, Śuddhodana was a King. According to the traditional belief Siddhartha Guatman Buddha lived a sheltered life, to escape from the miseries of the world. After dissatisfaction with his luxurious lifestyle, he began on a spiritual journey to better understand the essence of suffering and discover a way to overcome it.

At the age of 29, Lord Buddha sacrificed his imperial status and began a spiritual journey in search of enlightenment. After years of meditation and spiritual practice under the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya, India, Buddha attained enlightenment at the age of 35. The incident reflected his awakening to the truth of life, and he became known as the Buddha, which signifies “the awakened one.”

After getting enlightenment, the Lord spends his remaining life on the path of Dharma or the path of freedom from suffering. His teaching pointed our four valuable truths:

  • The truth of suffering (dukkha)
  • The truth of the cause of suffering (samudaya)
  • The truth of the end of suffering (nirodha)
  • The truth of the path that leads to the end of suffering (magga)

The philosophy of the Buddha highlighted kindness, mindfulness, and the growth of wisdom. He encouraged his followers to question and investigate his teachings rather than accepting them blindly.

The Guatman Buddha has directed the eightfold noble paths including right understanding, right intention, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right concentration.

The philosophy of Lord Buddha has made a deep impact on the world by inspiring millions of people to seek inner peace, freedom from suffering, and spiritual awakening. For this reason, Buddhism is the major religion with a large number of followers throughout Asia and around the world.

Humbling experience in Lumbini

My journey with my group of friends to Lumbini with Boundless Adventure was truly enlightening. The calm atmosphere of Lumbini with the expertise of our guides made our tour unforgettable. All management was organized smoothly by the team members of Boundless Adventure.

With all the logistic support by Boundless Adventure, we were able to just focus on absorbing the spirituality of the area. Indeed the Mayadevi temple where lord Buddha was born was the highlight of the visit. Also seeing people from all over the world showing respect to the birthplace of Siddhartha Gautman was a humbling experience that will stay in my memory forever

I had a great holiday in the birthplace of Lord Buddha with Boundless Adventure.

Getting engaged in a spiritual practice is always a kind of therapy for me that’s why I chose the Lumbini tour. Trusting Boundless Adventure is the best decision I’ve ever made for my tour. The Lumbini tour is the best among all the tours have undertaken throughout my life. My guide was knowledgeable about the history of the Lumbini and I was able to get some information from him.

I not only visited the areas but also got engaged in a meditation practice. I got so relief much after my journey on Lumbini. From the time I contacted Boundess Adventure to farewell from Nepal, the team took my proper care. I am grateful for the service of the company and look no other trekking agency for my next journey in Nepal.
