The verticality of Nepal will be felt as you
descend from the valley of Kathmandu to the
terai lowland area of Lumbini. It is the birthplace
of Lord Buddha, 'The Light of Asia' and is at
an altitude of just 200 meters above sea level.
The Lumbini Garden is a world heritage site.
It is a sprawling cemplex of viharas, monasteries
and meditation centers, a 'Bethlehem of Buddhism".
Lumbini is the pilgrimage for all the Buddhists.
Whatever faith you belong to, the visit will
certainly give you a feeling that you too have
made a pilgrimage to the God of your belief.
