The main reason behind a Buddhist culture tour in Nepal is that Buddhism started  in Nepal with the birth of Prince Siddhartha Gautama, who was born to Royal Family in Nepal in the 600BC.  When he was born a great sage came down from the hills and told his father that he would either be a great emperor or a great spiritual teacher. The father wanted his son to be a great emperor so he vowed to shield his son from all suffering and misery of the world, and kept him inside the walls of the palace where he lived a life of luxury and comfort. However, it was not long before his bubble was cracked open, when he went out of palace and he had four sightings of an aged man, a sick man, and a dead body. His fourth vision was of a peaceful monk (one who denies luxury and comfort). Seeing the monk’s peacefulness, he decided to become an ascetic himself. He decided not to go back until he solved the problem. So Siddhartha Gautama set out in the forest in search of answers. He sat down and meditated under a Pipal tree and attained enlightenment after 40 days on the full night, from there on they called him the Buddha the enlightened one.  The Nepal Buddhist circuit tour covers all the important places relating to Buddhism.

(5/5)
As I look back on the travel around Pokhara and Chitwan, I feel that I’m obsessed with unforgettable memories. I’ve seen the sunrise and sunset with mountains and forest graced by colorful light; I’ve heard sounds and music of nature in an orchestration; I’ve felt the breeze caress my cheek carrying moist rich smell of a forest floor and leaves; I’ve touched the skin of elephants as soft, gentle as a baby’s; I’ve known silence: the peaceful, earthy silence when all chaos faded away in mediation.
Never did I expect to go rafting in the rushing river, jump into and float in the cold water, take paragliding high above the sky, go boating while raining heavily, scramble deep into the bat cave embedded in darkness, walk through the secluded forest...... All of which would just lie in my imaginations of “what if...?” without this wonderful travel of adventures.
I have seen a lot of wonderful things, yet they wouldn’t become so meaningful to me if I didn’t meet those wonderful people. In company with someone like Sud who are passionate about his country as well as equally willing to share with others, we have experienced as much as possible in just a few days. There are times when we bathed in the bright sunshine with bare feet, visited around on the truck, opened up to share our feelings and thoughts freely together, chatted pleasantly into late night.
Again and again I encountered something new from them everyday that surprised me as a new way of living. Even the boredom on the buses were transformed into a kind of positive communication. Later on I would still gladly forgo all the routines bothering me for the company of them, for their personalities, their stories, for other possibilities that didn’t exist in me, and above all for their wonderful minds where is a mutual world that we can share.
Travel as much as you can if possible, now and here. Don’t hesitate to take on a journey full of ventures and unknowns. Don’t hesitate to step out of your comfort zone to try out new ones. Don’t hesitate to turn your “what if” into realities. It is all the possibilities you are exposed to on the way that illuminates you to know more about yourself, find what lies inside you and help you to realize what you are longing for.
