Nepal offers people a chance to follow in Buddha’s footsteps
The Nepal Tourism Board is holding a special event on Saturday (September 26) to mark Prince Siddhartha Gautam Buddha’s decision to give up palatial luxury to search for truth 2615 years ago.
The following day, it will hold another event marking World Tourism Day 2020 in a bid to show that the country has come out of the Covid-19 outbreak and is ready to receive visitors.
A tour package, called the Great Renunciation, has been designed to follow Buddha’s footsteps from Lumbini to Bodhgaya, Sarnath and Kushinagar in India.
This Great Renunciation tour will start in Lumbini on every full moon day from January 2021.
