The Birthplace of Buddha
After landing in Kathmandu we make our way to the domestic terminal for a stunning flight to Bhairawa where we are met by our team and transferred to our hotel in Lumbini. There will be a chance to relax and freshen up before our bike fitting and briefing on the challenge ahead. It is here in Lumbini that Queen Mayadevi is said to have given birth to Siddhartha Gautam, who in turn, as the Buddha Gautama, ‘gave birth’ to the Buddhist tradition. This afternoon we visit the magnificent monasteries and temples that are now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This evening there will be a welcome meal before we sleep and recharge for the start of our ride.
