Description of Nepal trek and yoga holiday
Helambu is one of Nepal's most delightful trekking regions, situated about 50 miles north of Kathmandu. It's a wonderful area to experience a unique Sherpa culture – including a visit at the start of your trip to a local high school. But there's also a chance to experience several days of yoga, meditation and spa treatments before returning home.
The walking section of this perfectly balanced trip include treks to Chispani (2140m), Kutumsang (2450m) and Tarke Gyang (2590m) – the latter a hotspot of Drukpa Kagyu Buddhism - through beautiful valleys and dense forests of pine, fir, oak and rhododendron with outstanding views of the Himalayan peaks. There's also a trek to Tharepati at 3640m taking in alpine meadows plus views to the iconic mountain of Gauri Shanker (the Holy mountain of Shiva and Parvati).
Reflect then on your mountain experiences with a finale in Kathmandu, offering a chance to explore the city alongside Ayurvedic spa treatments plus two days of gentle guided yoga-based meditation.

PlanetIn this world, no one can be far away from the Environment elements. In the creation time of universal, God has also gifted a beautiful environment to us, But in the name of making our lives comfort and development, we are making unhealthy and ugly it. As human beings, it comes more responsibility to protect and preservation of the environment.
We are equally aware of the environmental issue in all our trips and trying to minimize the impacted things and harmful activities on nature. Our guide will give a briefing about Responsible Tourism and how to best minimize the impact on nature, for example: Dispose of all waste in a rubbish pit, purify drinking water, proper litter removal, using kerosene fuel for cooking rather than fire-wood, use of local tea houses/ local camping sites.
Provide information on how to preserve the environment, for examples: Do not litter everywhere, dispose of rubbish in proper places like rubbish boxes, establish fire pits in camping treks/tours, if possible provide food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a small extra amount to Porters to bring back non disposable things by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams, etc.
on this tour we stay with local tea houses/ lodges, operated by local communities in the hilly regions which minimize impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood, and managing garbage properly.
PeopleTourism helps to generate income for the local community. For example: By purchasing local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities etc.
