HIMALAYAS – NEPAL
TREK, YOGA & AYURVEDA HOLIDAY

Yoga Holidays

Fitness Level: medium to high

In May 2018 a small group of seven headed to Nepal. This was a first visit for all of us. What an amazing journey! Every day presented a ‘wow’ factor.

The experiences were extreme with contrasts from truly inspiring to truly confronting. “However”, Lyn says, “it is contrasts that move us through life and create learning and expansion. I must say I returned home with changes deep inside my being not experienced with such depth from other tours I have been on in the past”. 

She goes on to say “A country such as Nepal, which seems to have so little, have in fact 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.”  Lyn continues, “Yes, there is extreme poverty and corruption. However, once we were out of Kathmandu, and opened up to country Nepal, it was an extreme delight to be amidst the Nepalese people  who we found to be  so very kind, caring and thoughtful, trustworthy and honest and hardworking. It was an honour to walk together.”

Although age is not really relevant, the group ranged from 36 to 72 – and everyone managed the trek, along with all the adventures included in the tour.We ended the tour at the Ayurveda Health Home in Pokhara which was incredibly inspiring, educational and informative. We left feeling healthy, energised and well prepared to return home. A very valuable and special addition to our overall experience.

I hope you are ready and able to come on the next  amazing journey to Nepal—October 2019.

Couples are welcome, including non-yoga partners.
