Accommodation

Many just make a day trip to Lumbini from the neighbouring towns of Butwal, Bhairawa or Sunauli. But if you want to stay in the area, the peaceful environment of Lumbini is certainly better than the noisy towns around. The options are many for your hotel stay, the choice exclusively yours.

Dining

The choices are rather limited. There are many restaurants which are about a ten minutes walk from the centre. There might be fewer food choices in Lumbini in comparison to Pokhara and Kathmandu However, despite the circumstances, you won’t need to go hungry…the Buddha wouldn’t want that anyways.
