Kathmandu
Arrive at the joining point hotel at any time on Day 1, we recommend arriving early afternoon to ensure you can the CEO for a welcome meeting and yoga class for a good stretch after your long flight. Kathmandu is fascinating at every turn and a great place to just wander, seeing where the city may lead you. We recommend arriving a day early to settle in. Stay: Hotel Traditional Comfort (D)
2
Kathmandu
Throughout this trip we will practice yoga in classes and with our CEO. Asanas are performed as relaxation techniques and as physical exercise where they are often referred to as "yoga postures" or "yoga positions". Some asanas are performed just for health purposes, stress relief or physical exercises, in placing the body in positions/poses that promote awareness, relaxation and concentration. Combined with breathing exercises and meditation, practicing this technique in modern, everyday life helps to maintain long term range of motion as we age, and improves longevity. From a metaphysical perspective, the practice brings lightness, calm and a blissful feeling in the body, mind and soul. Stay: Hotel Traditional Comfort (B/L)

Kathmandu - Pharping
Upon arrival at the Azom Monastery, you will be taken by the calmness and serenity of the area. This is an active monastery and place of worship, and we ask that you refrain from speaking in loud tones, or making an excess of noise, and be sure to dress in a modest fashion. Our rooms at Azom Monastery are simple but comfortable with attached bathroom. The main purpose of the monastery guest house is to provide accommodation for the monks visiting the school to learn the Tibetan language. Meals are served from the kitchen of the monastery and are simple and vegetarian only, alongside the resident student and teacher monks. During the first dinner at the monastery, we will have ample of opportunity to mingle with the monks. But please remember that monks are not very used in talking and communicating with visitors. Hence it would take some time for us to break the ice. Stay: Azom Monastery Guest House (B/D)

Pharping
Rise early to join the Monks for a prayer ceremony, then take a lying Yog asanas class. Enjoy free time to explore the area, visit the town or other monasteries. This evening, join the Monks during their evening meditations. Stay: Azom Monastery Guest House (B/L/D)

Pharping - Lumbini
Opt to join the Monks for an early morning prayer session before transferring back to the Kathmandu airport for the flight, then drive to Lumbini, the Lord Buddha's Birthplace. Enjoy a tricycle tour to visit Lumbini gardens, Maya Devi Temple and other monasteries in this stunning UNESCO World Heritage area. Stay: Hokke Hotel (B/D)
6
Lumbini
Lumbinī is an important Buddhist pilgrimage site and according to Buddhist tradition (as well as many historians and archaeologists) is the birthplace of Buddha. It is believed that Queen Mayadevi gave birth to Siddhartha Gautama in 563 BC. and then Gautama, (who achieved Enlightenment in Mahabodhi Temple Complex in Bodh Gaya, India around 528 BC), became The Lord Buddha and founded Buddhism. Stay: Hokke Hotel (B/D)
7
Lumbini - Chitwan National Park
In 2015, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. G Adventures immediately responded to this earthquake and launched a campaign that would raise over $200,000 CAD for long-term redevelopment of the tourism industry in Nepal. These funds helped rebuild the homes of over 150 porters, local guides, resource poor women in the tourism industry’s homes, and the remaining helped purchase seven solar panels and hot water tanks to provide electricity and hot water to the community for the first time. The village has 14 individual cottages that are part of the homestay program, plus a community dining hall. The accommodations are simple but clean and comfortable. Barauli, home to the Tharu people, is a small indigenous community near the Chitwan National Park in Nepal. The park is a popular tourism attraction that is well known for its wildlife but less known for the cultural value that it has to offer travellers. Due to its distance from the typical tourism hotspots in the park, the Tharu residents have never been able to access the economic benefits of tourism. Limited opportunities for community members have led to engagement in illegal activities like poaching and deforestation in the park as a means of income diversification. The potential for added community income through the creation of the homestay program provides positive new job opportunities into the region. Stay: Community Home Stay (B/L/D)
8
Chitwan National Park
This evening the community people will be show casing their cultural program during which they perform various dances including the Tharu Stick Dance. We suggest you to have your dancing shoes on as the locals will be inviting you to participate along with them. Stay: Community Home Stay (B/L/D)

There is a pool, bar and spa which can be enjoyed as optional activities. Stay: Rupakot Resort (B/D)

Pokhara
Nestled in a tranquil valley at an altitude of 827m (2,713 ft), beautiful Pokhara lies on a once vibrant trade route between India and Tibet.
