After our incredibly successful yoga trek in September 2020, which was led by head guide Nawaraj Pandey with Andrea Duffin, from the Yoga Mill in Scotland, we have been asked to put together another group. Leaving Kathmandu on the 3rd Wednesday in September 2020 this group will have a fantastic opportunity to follow in the footsteps of our pioneering group and summit Kanji Ri, experience Gosaikunda and enjoy the fabulous hospitality at Ganesh Community Homestay, Nuwakot. Our yoga trek perfectly blends trekking through the invigorating external Himalayan landscape while developing our knowledge of our internal landscape with Hatha yoga and spiritual meditation.
It’s suitable for all level of yoga practitioners. The trek can be challenging at times so to get the most out of it we would recommend incorporating some training into your daily routine. This trek will run in 2021 and 2022, departing the 3rd Wednesday in September in both years. Early bird price for 2020 trek $1390 USD available until January 2020. (Early bird price of $1490 for 2021 available until January 2021). Pay a small deposit before January 2020 to secure your place, then spread the payment over 2 instalments to take advantage of our early bird offer.
