About Trip

Lumbini Sworgadwari Pilgrimage Tour is a unique and a personalized trip of Nepal Kameleon Holidays. The tour includes two highly appreciated destinations- Lumbini and Sworgadwari. Lumbini is a birthplace of Lord Buddha and Sworgadwari temple is known as the door to heaven. Both destinations are extremely popular for the pilgrimage tour in Nepal that has cultural diversities to explore.  

Lumbini is a world heritage site. It is located in the western part of Nepal, which is about 8 hrs drive. During the tour in Lumbini, you can explore the Buddhist way of life and how the Buddhism has flourished in this historical place. Another wonderful aspect is that you can take a village tour in Tharu villages around Lumbini.

Sworgadwari is extremely popular for the Hindu devotees and we also recommend you if you want to find the religious traditions and harmony, go to Sworgadwari pilgrimage tour. It is a vegetarian place, where the temple lies at an altitude of 2300 meters at the hill ridge. It lies in the Mid-Western Nepal, Pyuthan district of Rapti Zone. Sworgadwari tour is also naturally awesome. The hill ridge, where temple lies is a brilliant viewpoint to explore the snowy peak, greeneries and undisturbed surroundings. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu and other neighboring peaks can be explored from the hill ridge. The route to reach the temple is dotted by the rhododendron forest. You stay either in the Ashram or the lodge at the downhill. 

In Sworgadwari, vegetarian foods are served and cow milk. The legendry goes back when Sworgadwari Mahapravu, Pancha Pandavs and God Indra. But this place is famous for the meditation that offers insightful meaning. The trip can be described as Sworgadwari meditation tour. It’s a sacred place where people perform Homa, Yagyans and prayers (ritual procession) are performed every day.
