About the 3 Days Lumbini Sightseeing Tour
Lumbini is a Buddhist pilgrimage site in the Rupandehi district of Nepal. It is largely regarded as the place where Queen Mayadevi gave birth to Siddhartha Gautama. Siddhartha Gautama lived roughly between 623 and 543 BCE and he founded Buddhism as Gautama Buddha.
Lumbini has a number of temples, including the Mayadevi temple, and others under construction. Also located here is the Puskarini or Holy Pond where the Buddha's mother took the ritual dip prior to his birth and where he, too, had his first bath, as well as the remains of Kapilvastu palace. At other sites near Lumbini, earlier Buddhas were, according to tradition, born, achieved ultimate awakening and finally relinquished earthly form.

Best Season/Time for 3 Days 2 Nights Lumbini Sightseeing Tour
If you are a traveller who is planning to visit Lumbini the birthplace of Buddha, you can visit any time of the year. But for travellers who visit to explore the roots of the religion and the historical landmarks, it sometimes becomes essential that you get to do so with the help of an enjoyable climatic experience.
Autumn Season (September, October, November)
Autumn is the best season to visit Lumbini and explore its landmarks and architecture. As the monsoons retreat, they leave behind weather that is just beginning to cool down after the scorching conditions, and the skies and atmosphere clear up providing ample opportunities for sunrise and sunset views. Temperatures range between comfortable degrees of 12ᴼC-28ᴼC
Winter Season (December, January, February)
Winters rarely qualify as a good time to be in Lumbini. The city remains too cold and the temperature can sometimes get as low as 2ᴼC that restricts an enjoyable sightseeing experience. The humidity remains high even in winters, which leads to a lot of foggy mornings that hinder views and movement. A series of cold waves sweep over the region during the months of January and February that are believed to be the frostiest months in the area.
Spring Season (March, April, May)
After autumn, the second-best time to visit Lumbini is in the spring. The temperatures start getting warmer after the bitter winters, and the fog dissipates to reward you with a bright and vibrant atmosphere perfect for venturing out to explore. The grand festival of Buddha Purnima is also celebrated in the months of April/May, which witness throngs of devotees and tourists who travel from far and wide to celebrate the birth of Buddha in his homeland.
Summer Season (June, July, August)
During the temperatures start to rise rapidly and can reach levels of up to 40ᴼC. Which makes the summer non-ideal season for travellers. The monsoon showers begin in mid- to late June, and can last all the way till September. While the rains bring some relief from the sweltering temperature, the humidity levels generally remain too high to enjoy much of any outdoor strolls or sightseeing.
