This short yoga trekking will take place on the edge of the Kathmandu Valley. Pass through small farming villages, where you can experience the way of life of the local people, as well as green forests, ancient temples and terraced farmlands. Add to that a very nice encounter with Buddhist monks and the superb snow-capped peaks visible in the distance, and it’s the perfect introduction to a trek in the Himalayas!

You will go where tourists do not go...

Yoga practice times during this trek will be set daily by your instructor and will include one hour of instruction in the morning and evening.

  • 02 Sightseeing of Kathmandu & food safari Culture and food are on the program today! Cuisine is culture; it is part of the customs, history and traditions of a people. You will alternate between visits to monuments, local markets and sampling the favorite snacks of local people.

    Today, a guide who will introduce you not only to the history of the monuments but also the city’s past will accompany you.

    Visit Pashupatinath Temple, the most important Hindu temple in Nepal consecrated to Lord Shiva. The original core dates back to the 6th century AD and is known for its architecture in the shape of a pagoda. This place, also known as Little Benares, is located along the Bagmati River; here every day funeral ceremonies take place with the corpses being burned on pyres before the scattering of the ashes on the Bagmati River.

    Afterwards visit the huge Boudhanath Stupa, the most important Buddhist cultural center in Kathmandu since numerous refugees from Tibet have stopped there, creating more than 50 Gompas (Tibetan monasteries). Since 1979, Boudhanath has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    In the afternoon, visit another important Buddhist center, the stupa of Swayambhunath, known as the monkey temple because of the high number of monkeys living inside. This ancient religious complex is located atop a hill to the west in the Kathmandu Valley, and from here there are beautiful views of the city and the valley that surrounds it.

It retains some beautiful statues dating from the 7th century. From there we will start our trek to reach Nagarkot at 2100 meters altitude, which will be the highest point of this trip.

The main square is dominated by a three-roofed Hari Siddhi temple and a three-tiered Vishnu temple in front of which are two statues of Garuda, made in different styles.
