Most travelers believe it is best to go to Lumbini via a private vehicle watching the lovely hills and greenery around the roadway.

In contrast, some people believe the tourist bus is the most viable option as you will meet a variety of people on the trip and be friends with them, which results in you having fun on the trip. You will not feel isolated at any point in the trip. Traveling by flight is not the best way to go to Lumbini as you need to travel via roadways anyhow. However, some travelers believe the airway is the best option for people who can’t withstand a long time traveling via bus or jeep.

  • Well, you do find money exchanges when you are in Lumbini outside the temple's premises. However, on the inside, you won’t find any money exchange. So, it is suggested to convert money before you board to Lumbini. You can do that while you are in Kathmandu.

  • A guide is a person who knows about the place very well and will inform you about many facts and figures regarding the visit. Not only this, but even if any complications arise, a guide knows how to deal with the ins and outs of that particular situation. You can complete the Lumbini Trip without a guide. But, it is advised to go on the trip with a guide so that even if anything odd happens, you can deal with that easily. All of this helped make the trip memorable for all the good reasons.

Some travelers who come to Nepal believe Lumbini is actually in Kathmandu. Well, it is not true. Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal which is 128 miles from Lumbini. Also, Lumbini is the actual birthplace of Gautam Buddha. So, as for the question, Lumbini is not in Kathmandu.
