Buddhists believe that the Buddha, filled with compassion for a starving tigress, once sacrificed his flesh to feed her. That exchange is said to have happened at Namobuddha.
Visit this profoundly sacred Buddhist pilgrimage site. Stand beneath a grand stupa festooned with prayer flags. See an engraved stone portraying the scene of the Buddha sacrificing his body.
Spend a quiet, reflective night at the site’s striking red monastery, grounding yourself and connecting with one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in Nepal. Then wake up early for a serene hike.
