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.
