A beautiful Himalayan kingdom and the origin place of Vedic Sanatan Dharma, Nepal is a land of Devas, saints, and sages. As such, Nepal is one of the best places to practice Yoga, considering the country's piousness concerning astrology, Ayurveda, tantra, and Vastu-Shastra. Yoga and meditation balance spiritual life and material life and helps in giving positive thoughts and contentment. It helps in purifying the body, mind, and soul. The 12 Days Annapurna Yoga Trek takes you through the Annapurna region's best destinations to let you practice the art of yoga right under the shadow of the towering peaks of the Annapurna massif.
The Annapurna Yoga Trek begins with a drive to Pokhara, one of the best places in Nepal to relax and enjoy nature. Pokhara is situated beside the pristine Phewa Lake where you can retreat your mind and body in a deep meditative state by the peaceful lakeside. Pokhara also presents mesmerizing views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Peaks.
Before the start of each trekking journey, you will have time to spare for a yoga session. With clear minds and bodies, you will then begin your trekking journey, traveling from one village to the next through the Annapurna valleys. Meandering through the lush pasturelands, thick groves of rhododendron and bamboo, and chartreuse alpine woodlands, you can fully take in the beauty of nature.
Moreover, the trip is also a great way to experience the Himalayan lifestyle of the ethnic people. The terrain presents many Gompas and monasteries, chortens, and temples scattered throughout the landscape. As you continue on your trip, you will encounter many monks as well, who can teach you the art of yoga and the importance of nature, and the Himalayan ambiance in spiritual healing through meditation.
