Location: Kathmandu Valley & Himalayan Foothills , Nepal
We start the day by exploring the inner experience of awakening in ourselves, as well as grounding our awareness into the body through yoga, and in the afternoon sessions, we enhance the experience by becoming pilgrims and yogis.
We explore the outer element of sacredness and the culture of awakening by visiting, and paying homage to the many sacred temples and shrines in the Kathmandu Valley and when we journey into the Himalayan foothills of Nepal.
We will be staying at a Tibetan Buddhist monastery and a beautifully located resort in the Kathmandu Valley during our first week of the Yoga Pilgrimage.
Here we will have all the facilities and services of a nice hotel, including Wifi access, hot water, delicious and fresh meals from own garden, access to alcoholic beverages and cappuccinos.
During our days up at a Tibetan Buddhist nunnery in the Himalayan foothills, we will have more basic accommodation, but this is part of the inner and outer journey of a pilgrimage into the Himalayas of Nepal.
food and dining
We will enjoy vegetarian and organic meals throughout the pilgrimage journey.
We will immerse ourselves in the serene nature, as well as visiting sacred sites where yogis have meditated for decades and where Buddhist monasteries and prayer flags characterize the surroundings.
The first week we experience the areas of Pharping and Namo Buddha in the Kathmandu Valley, and in the second week we venture into the Lower Everest region of Nepal where we spend three nights at a beautiful and blessed Tibetan Buddhist nunnery in the Himalayan foothills.
The meditation and philosophy theme will be weaved into our days, both in Kathmandu and in the mountains, as we embark on an inner and outer journey through Nepal.
