Wander the ancient city sites and marketplaces of Kathmandu.
Challenge your body trekking through the Himalayas, supported by individually tailored yoga classes.
Awaken your spirit in the temples and stupas, surrounded by prayer flags and incense.
All profits from this trip (after essential expenses) will be donated to support the local Langtang community to help them continue to rebuild their lives two years after the devastating Earthquakes.
Langtang is a region within a national park directly north of Kathmandu. It is easily accessible by bus or in our case, by Jeep. This part of the Himalayas forms the northern Nepali border with Tibet. The people of this region have strong Tibetan heritage which is evident in their culture and customs.
Timed to coincide with Losar (The Tibetan New Year Festival), we will join the local community to celebrate Losar with the locals in traditional style, enjoying a homestay with local families.
Experience the beauty, spirit and culture of Nepal by connecting with the local Langtang community while your visit directly supports the local economy to make a very real difference.
This tour is designed for the adventurous at heart – those seeking a soulful and spiritual physical challenge. Not sure if it's right for you? Have more questions? No problem - schedule a free, no-obligation call back here.
No matter what your previous experience with Yoga, our optional daily Yoga classes will be skillfully adapted to your individual needs. From the complete beginner to the experienced Yogi, practices will be relevant and appropriate.
The Langtang Valley trek is of moderate level. Described as “one of the most beautiful valleys in the world” by Bill Tilman, British travel writer and mountaineer, Langtang is less well known and far less overcrowded than the Annapurna and Everest regions.
Fast and slow walkers are catered for with guides at each end.
There aren’t as many teas houses as before the earthquake, but there is still tasty food.
The prefered meal is Dal (curried lentils) & Bhaat (rice). Dal Bhaat is nutritious, filling and provides great fuel for trekking. Each tea-house has its own recipe, and it is usually served with vegetable curry, salad and chutney. There are a variety of other dishes available. Treats may be available in the form of beer and candy bars. Lhakpa bakes fresh bread at his Dorje Bakery.
For breakfast, the tea houses serve pancakes, eggs, cereal and porridge. For lunch and dinner, you can also ask for Dal Bhaat, but there may be other dishes available such as noodles, pasta and momos (Nepali dumplings).
This is an authentic Nepali experience. The tea houses are simple, comfortable and cozy. In most cases you will have to share the restroom which have a (squat) toilet.
Join us for this incredible experience!
The itinerary has been carefully designed by Emily Eglitis and Lhakpa Jangba.
Lhakpa is a local Langtang community leader. Emily first met Lhakpa when she was working as a volunteer Physiotherapist in Nepal. Now with ten years experience as a physiotherapist and Yoga Teacher, Emily has created a tour that brings together some of the best that Nepal has to offer. You will be in the safe hands of Emily and the local expert guides and porters.
We start with a 5-Star hotel stay in Kathmandu to gently acclimatize and explore the ancient city of Kathmandu, taking in the food, culture, sights and sounds.
Our days start with a private (optional) yoga class before we set off to visit the bustling streets of Thamel and the spiritual sites of Swayambunath (Monkey Temple) and Boudhanath. We will visits the markets and shops of Thamel and Durbar Square.
After three nights (in a five star hotel), we leave the city in private cars and head out into the Himalayas to explore the Langtang region. We adventure through the Himalayas, staying in authentic Tea-House lodges. Typically this means simple twin share accommodation – basic and cosy (more details on food and accommodation in our Tour Prospectus).
We conclude each day with a daily yoga practice (again it’s optional), to stretch out our legs, backs and shoulders from a day on the trails and prepare for the next day’s hike.
Our final day of the trek we return to Khamjim and experience a traditional homestay accommodation with families in the village. The next day is Losar (Tibetan New Year) so we will join our group, our ‘families’ and the local community to celebrate in traditional style with singing, dancing and drinking Tibetan Tea. We will stay one final night in Khamjim before returning to Kathmandu to our hotel.
In Kathmandu, we will have a celebratory farewell dinner. The next day we will depart (after a final morning yoga session).
Your visit will support the local Langtang community still recovering from the 2015 Earthquakes with your stay contributing to the local economy and employment plus a fundraising contribution from your tour fee. All profits (above essential expenses) will also go toward the local Langtang community rebuilding effort.
