Everest Monastery Yoga Trek

When Yoga is added in any trekking or tour, there would not be the best combination ever possible in the world. As Yoga always seeks to offer the way for union to the Supreme Self, the trekking and tours are intended to unite with the supreme prosperity and enthrallment offered by the God or the Nature Goddess. In this context, yoga seems to be highly relevant subject to follow along with the following of rugged and challenging trails of the trek. Everest Monastery Yoga Trek leads one to the high Himalayan range of Khumbu region, one of the most visited places in the world. Because of its affluent and amazing cultural, natural and spiritual ambience, it not only has been visited as a place to see the highest mountains in the world but also for the spiritual awakening and awareness.

The land of Himalayas is the abode of enlightened souls. In this regard, even though the life-style and climate may be observed as hard and heavy to sustain, it is actually the blessing and examination of the nature God to the humanity. If one can’t dare to adopt and adore the beauty which has been offered by the nature rather than focusing on the pain and difficulty of the trail, there is no justification to enjoy the marvel and magnificence of the Himalayas. The journey in itself is conceived as an open book of knowledge which always leads the ascending route for understanding and exploring the self. Indeed, the trek or any visit in its external sense seems to be merely for observing the natural and panoramic mesmerism of the world. In addition to the external contentment for our mind and eyes, it also aspires for the eternal and individual cleansing and clarification of the self.

Everest Monastery Yoga Trek starts with the short flight from Tribhuvan International Airport to Tenjing-Hillary Airport Lukla. During the trek, yoga will be included as its regular practice every day. Landing on the height of about 2600 meter from sea level, the trek takes increasing altitude up to 3800 meters at Tengboche Monastery.

Why Yoga in Trek in Nepal?

Everest Monastery Yoga Trek treks has comprised the practice of yoga and trek together. It’s like one journey two benefits. Even though the trek has fairly been targeted to visit some incredible and awe-inspiring scenario of the Himalayan range as well as experiencing the cultural affluence of the region, Everest Monastery Yoga Trek also intends to offer you some relaxing and gentle yoga practice twice in a day as its exclusive program. The day begins with some asana practice in the morning and ends with pranayama or the breathing techniques along with some meditation in the evening. In between two session of yoga, the trekkers follows the trekking route and enjoy the delightful time. In order to cope with the high altitude and cold climate, Everest Monastery Yoga Trek has come up with an interesting idea of yoga with trek. During those challenging and adventurous journey to the high mountains ranges of the world, one may definitely get excited and thoroughly enjoyed. On the other, there is always a chance of being fatigued and exhausted by the everyday trek. With the sincere hope and intention, Yoga has been tried to incorporate in the trekking to address the issue of physical exhaustion and mental determination. More than anything else, the yoga has a target to explore and indulge into one’s self. The self-inquiry and world-exploration go simultaneously. Everest Monastery Yoga Trek offers many relaxing and stretching asana practices to the body which has been tired. To accelerate and energize the stamina of the physical body and willpower and intension of the mental body, both asana and pranayama along with meditation can be comprised during the Everest Monastery Yoga Trek.

Yoga practice has been one of the most amazing art and science practiced since thousands years. Interesting to say that the origin of Yoga is this holy Himalayan range. The first yogi of the world called Lord Shiv is believed to have abode in the Himalayan range. The same yoga which was practiced for generation to generation has been tried to combine with some explorative trek. In spite of its global expansion and recognition, Yoga still has been the part of hidden practice coming to this time in many parts of the world. One of those places is the Himalayan range of Nepal where Buddhist Yoga and many other spiritual practices are conducted solely for their own sake which has been confined to them only. Keeping the very fact in mind, the yoga which was incepted in this part of the world has now never been common practice and rather it has been very secret one. Considering the essentiality and importance of yoga in life for all the people and for the wellness and awareness of many trekkers and for their physical health, The Trek, Tour and Travel Nepal has designed the Everest Monastery Yoga Trek to serve our valued trekkers with yoga and trek.

The most wonderful reason to practice yoga is its integral nature to our life. The existence of life is possible because of the union of vital force or the Prana Shakti with the physical body. Once the life energy leaves the physical body, there is no longer the existence of our life. The yoga teaches us to play and practice with the vital force and enjoy the beauty of life without being frustrated because of the past and being anxious for the future. Yoga is the union of body, mind, and soul at its optimum level. While trailing the risky and rocky trails of the mystic mountains of the Himalayan range of Nepal, one would definitely feel some sort of sublimity and ecstasy. Moreover, during the trek, one also may get feel sore and pain in the physical body. In Everest Monastery Yoga Trek which continues for ten days one may also need some relaxation and treatment to the body. In such high altitude, there may not have lot of luxurious options to get relief from the sore of the body. There is definitely one system which can be incorporated in the range of mighty mountains i.e. yoga. Because of being the origin place of Yoga and meditation, the Himalayan range would always be welcoming and receptive to the practice of such even though it has been secret practice in this part of the world. Therefore, The Trek Tour and Travel Nepal believes yoga can be a wonderful combination to adopt with the trek in the vast and magnificent trek to the mountains of the Nepal.

The trek to Nepal in itself is an adventurous and life-exploring journey. When yoga is added in the precious recipe of tasting the delicious dishes of heavenly Himalayas and its grandeur and sumptuousness, it can be the best experience which is only possible in very few places among them Nepal can be one such place. The interrelationship of yoga with trek in the context of Nepal has not only been constrained to the practice for physical fitness. As a matter of fact, yoga while trekking in Nepal can be a spiritual journey to follow exploring the inner awareness and experiencing the elixir of Himalayas.
