The ‘Abode of the Gods’, the Himalayas are the highest mountain range on earth and separate the Indian Subcontinent from China & Tibet .
The Indian Himalayas form part of the western Himalayan range. As the glaciers give way to the holiest rivers in India, the hills of Uttarakhand resonate with a powerful spiritual peace whilst further west, the hills and valleys of Himachal Pradesh and Kashmir offer the scenic beauty to be expected in a country that reveres the fresh mountain air as a panacea to the hot and humid plains below. Further north, up and over the main Himalayan range is the magical land of Ladakh, known as ‘Little Tibet’. Inaccessible by road for much of the year, the Lakadhis are a unique mountain people thriving in a starkly beautiful but inhospitable land.
In contrast, the landlocked country of Nepal is one of the adventure capitals of the world. A land of extremes from the heights of Mt Everest to the lowland forests and rivers. A country of rich culture and heritage, a charming blend of religions, races and incredible natural beauty, Nepal is a destination that can offer a vast array of experiences from elephant back riding to trekking, whitewater rafting to mountain climbing, heritage rural stays to cosmopolitan nightlife. Nepal will amazing you with its variety, its beauty and overall its amazingly welcoming people.

About the Tour and your Facilitator
In today’s modern society, we live indoors, isolated from the life-giving force of the Earth, robbed of feeling how Mother Earth fully nourishes us. Like food and water, air and sleep, Earth’s energy is essential for our Health and Wellbeing! You can’t fully Live without it.
Wellness is an active, lifelong process of becoming aware of choices and making decisions towards a more balanced and fulfilling Life. We search for the appropriate ‘tools’ and methods, the right nourishment to experience this richness and feed our most precious asset in Life – our Health and Wellbeing. The truth is that nothing nourishes you like NATURE! Unfortunately we have managed to disconnect, divorce from Nature and the life-giving force Nature provides. Here is your chance to facilitate a marriage again – join us on this amazing trip to the Himalayas and remarry Nature!
During the 20 days of this Incredible Journey through the Himalayas, You will learn various ways to Energise with Mother Nature, Re-Vitalize You and Connect with Your Natural Power. Through some simple, unique steps for living incorporated into our daily routine whilst on tour, you will learn how to return to your daily life at home, with the knowledge and skills, the ‘how to’ live and Reconnect with Nature from home.
Each day we’ll take time out, be it in an ancient Hindu temple, out in the jungle or forest, on the side of a hill during a trek or in a Buddhist monastery to practice some form of reconnection. We might spend 10 minutes meditating. Perhaps we’ll use Shaitsu and Tai Chi principles to learn how to shift energy around our bodies. Working on various ways of enhancing your awareness and how to best facilitate a nourishing energy flow for you and Your Body, so that you experience pure Joy and vitality in being with Nature.
