Nepal Yoga Journey

BRING YOUR OWN GROUP OF YOGA STUDENTS TO ENJOY DAILY YOGA SESSIONS WHILE EXPLORING THE mountains, hills, and villages of Nepal

Nepal is undoubtedly one of the world’s most fascinating travel destinations. Our carefully planned 13-night journey incorporates Nepal’s stunning scenery, peaceful villages and lets you discover friendly and hospitable local people, while furthering your yoga practice. Bring your own group of yoga students and practitioners and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime journey!

About this trip

Your Yoga Journey begins in Kathmandu, Nepal. Stay in comfortable boutique accommodation while you settle in to the rhythms of Nepali life. Visit some of the most atmospheric and holiest sites in Kathmandu, such as the ancient stupas at Bouddhanath and Swayambhunath, and the Patan Durbar Square.

Fly to Pokhara, stop for a short break and then begin your trek in the Annapurna Himalayas. The four-night trek takes you through rhododendron forests and farming villages to the lookout at Poon Hill, which offers stunning views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and other very high mountains.

After your trek, unwind at a family-run eco-lodge in the hills, with 360-degree panoramic views of the mountains and beautiful yoga spaces. End your time in Western Nepal with two luxurious nights at a resort in Lakeside Pokhara—swim in the pool, have a massage, and explore the shops and attractions around Phewa Lake.

During your stay, time off is incorporated into the programme for you to explore and take in the stunning views and surroundings. There are plenty of opportunities for keen photographers, bird watching, hiking and of course—yoga.
