Full Description

This will truly be the trip of a lifetime.

Set between Boudhanath, a Tibetan village tucked into the outskirts of Kathmandu, and Pokhara, which will be the jumping off point for a five day trek, this trip to Nepal is certain to provide perspectives beyond one’s imagination.

Our trip will begin in the village of Boudhanath, about 11 km from the center of Kathmandu. Boudhanath is truly an enchanting place, and since 1979 a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It boasts one of the largest Stupa’s in Asia, and because of the enormous influx of Tibetan refugees, is now home to over 50 Tibetan Gompas, or monasteries. We will spend 5 days and 4 nights in Boudhanath, welcomed by a traditional Buddhist Puja (ceremony of honour and devotion). For 2 of the days spent in Kathmandu, we will participate in part of the rebuilding project in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquake. Our other days will be spent exploring the historic Patan and Thamel neighbourhoods.

After Kathmandu, we will travel to the beautiful lake-side town of Pokhara. After a night of rest in a lovely guest house in Pokhara, we will embark on the 5-day Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. This is one of the most famous trekking routes in Nepal and is accessible for all levels. The Ghorepani trek offers a wonderful opportunity to witness the beauty of the Annapurna region is rich in hidden treasures of Nepalese culture. Our trail passes through the world’s famous ‘Gorkha warrior’ clan, the charming villages of Gurung and Magar, dense rhododendron (Nepalese national flower), Oak forest full of birds, green hills and patchwork valleys. Just about every angle offers a tantalizing glimpse of Mt. Fishtail (6,993m,) Annapurna (8,091m) and Dhaulagiri (8,167). This is not a camping trek! We will be staying in guest/tea houses each night with beds and bathrooms. You will be responsible for carrying your own pack, but do not need any special gear. (Porters are available for an additional charge.)

Each day of our trip will begin with morning yoga (asana, pranayama and meditation) followed by a nourishing breakfast to provide us energy and perspective for each day’s adventures. Each evening we will finish our day with a more restorative practice followed by a traditional Nepalese dinner.
