The founder of Buddhism, Gautaum Buddha, is believed to have been born here in the sixth century BC. There are many historical and religious artifacts commemorating his life in Lumbini.

      When Emperor Asoka, or Piyadasi, converted to Buddhism in 249 BC, he visited Lumbini. He also built four stupas as well as a stone pillar. Asoka's Pillar is inscribed with the following translation: "King Piyadasi (Asoka), beloved of devas, in the 20 years of the coronation, himself made a royal visit, Buddha Sakyamuni having been born here, a stone railing was built and a stone pillar erected to the Bhagavan [“blessed one”] having been born here. Lumbini village was taxed reduced and entitled to eight parts”.

      Lumbini was once again rediscovered in 1895 by a German archaeologist. He did so by recognizing the Ashoka's Pillar. This highly revered location was also located through records kept by the Chinese pilgrim Fa Xian. In 1997, Lumbini received the designation of UNESCO World Heritage Site.

      You will visit the Ashoka Pillar, Mayadevi Garden, and museums in the vicinity. Soak in the tranquility of this peaceful location.

      In the afternoon, we will try to leave Lumbini. Per the Kathmandu flight schedule, we will travel to the Gautam Buddha airport in Bhairawa. From there, take a 50-minute flight to return to Kathmandu. The flight will be scenic, and you can admire a breathtaking aerial view of the Annapurna peaks and other peaks in the Himalayan range.

      Spend your final night in this land of immense cultural diversity for the last time in Nepal. After arrival at the domestic airport, you will be checking into your accommodation. The adventurous times you had in Nepal come to an end soon.

    Essential Information

    Best Time

    Any time of the year except monsoon that occurs from mid-June to mid-September is suitable. Recently, monsoon has been lasting upto October, so make sure you check the weather predictions.

    Monsoon makes traveling quite messy and makes trips to the south quite uncomfortable. The heat is quite unbearable, and there is a high chance of insect bites. Moreover, Chitwan is amidst a jungle, and going on a tour there would just be very uncomfortable during monsoon.

    The best time to see clear views is from March to May. This is when the vistas of the mountains are excellent, and wildflowers blossom in the afternoon. The days are going to be nice with cooler morning and evening temperatures. Because of the excellent views of the peaks, October through December is also the greatest season to visit Nepal. It might be chilly in the morning and night on days with strong sunlight.
