Combine the ancient spiritual practice of yoga with the thrill of trekking in the Himalaya.

Sharpen your body and mind while being in the presence of several of the highest peaks in the world, including the behemoth Mount Everest(8848 meters).
Yoga is a mental, spiritual and physical practice of disciplining and strengthening oneself. It is mostly practiced mostly by Hindus, Buddhists, and Jains, though it has rapidly spread to the west and become a secular practice. Anyone and everyone can enjoy the beauty of yoga. Is there a better place on Earth to experience this enlightening activity? Find a sense of inner peace at the lap of the world’s highest summit!
There is a lot more to yoga than strengthening and relaxing the body (though that does help a lot during our trek!). It is about strengthening self-awareness and cultivating a higher consciousness in the individual. The trekking helps this even more because we are hiking through pristine sceneries. We are detached from the worries and anxieties that sometimes way down on us during our everyday life.
This unforgettable journey will stick with you forever! Every day we begin and end the day with yoga and meditation. There is no better way to wake up and fall asleep.
The trek starts with a flight to Lukla, considered to be one of the most dangerous flights in the world (do not worry, you will be safe!). It is a slow and steadyclimb from here on. One notable stop is in Namche Bazaar – the center point of Sherpa trade and tourism. Busy shops, bakeries, and guesthouses are packed along the stone streets. It is a lovelytown to spend a day acclimatizing and exploring.
Another fascinating placeis Tengboche Monastery – a huge Tibetan Buddhist monastic complex. Receive some blessings here before traversing higher and higher into the rugged and barren environment. Reaching Everest Base Camp is an unforgettable moment. There is so much history to this legendary place, you can feel it in the air.
Kala Patthar, though, outshines Everest Base Camp in terms of sheer beauty. This is the best place to see Mount Everest, so enjoy its splendor. Also admire dozens of other rugged ridges and peaks surrounding it. Youcan see several more of the world’s tallest mountains, including Lhotse, Makalu, and others.
Throughout the trek, you feel at peace from hours of yoga and meditation. You become more present throughout the journey and your spirit is filled. You will be glowing for days following the trek. We would love to share this amazing experience with you!
