The main objective of this newly introduced Pathibhara Cultural trail is the pilgrimage visit to ‘Pathibhara Devi’ and to have an in-depth experience of the culture, tradition, and lifestyle of the Limbu people dominating the region. The Goddess at Pathibhara is believed to have miraculous powers and is said to have answered her devotees' prayers. The story regarding the foundation of the temple has been passed to one generation to another generation where hundreds of sheep disappeared as they were grazing the place where the temple positioned today. Myth has it that the distressed shepherds then had a dream in which the Goddess told where she resided and instructed them to carry out ritualistic sacrifices of sheep. When the sacrifice was offered and the temple and the statue was build, the lost sheep were said to have returned and from then onwards started the worship of Pathibhara Devi.
