Fitness Level: low to medium
Every day presents the ‘wow’ factor.
Nepal provides extreme experiences … contrasts from truly inspiring to truly confronting. “However”, Lyn says, “it is contrast that moves us through life and creates learning and expansion. I must say I returned home with energy and a lovely feeling of connection, with me!
Variety is presented in the itinerary where we travel from Kathmandu, to Nagarkot, to Chitwan, to Pokhara and then to the amazing Himalayan mountains and Rhododendron forests, finishing with Ayurvedic massages and steam baths”.
Lyn goes on to say “A country such as Nepal, which seems to have so little, in fact has so much in many aspects. I found myself in a state of quiet, slow paced, being in the moment. I felt a deep sense of appreciation, gratefulness and acceptance.” She continues, “Yes, there is extreme poverty and corruption. However, once we were out of Kathmandu, and opened up to country Nepal, we settled into a more relaxed and accepting mode. It was such a delight to be amidst the Nepalese people who we found to be so very kind, caring and thoughtful, trustworthy, honest and hardworking. It was an honour to walk together with them.”
The age range of the group is generally around 35 to 75. The trek, along with all the adventures included in the tour, are suited to most levels of fitness. There is never any rush, we purposely create the itinerary so, as a group we can stop and smell the roses!! We are big on flexibility and if something will work better in that moment, we are happy to change it.
We end our adventure in Pokhara and utilise the Ayurveda Health Home for daily Ayurvedic massages and steam baths. This is incredibly beneficial, inspiring, educational and informative. We leave this amazing country feeling healthy, energised and well prepared for whatever is awaiting us at home.
I hope you are ready and able to come on the next amazing journey to Nepal. Please be aware that booking early ensures your place and also gives you big savings on your air travel. Small groups are our specialty.
