Bhutan ‘Yoga Adventure’ 2017

TigersMons

Practice your yoga in one of the world’s most spiritual places!

27th September – 11th October 2017

 

Your Yoga Journey begins in Kathmandu, Nepal.  We visit the ancient stupa at Bouddhanath where Tibetans in exile circumnavigate each morning spinning their prayer wheels through incense-laden clouds.  Stay two nights at a luxury 4-star hotel offering a haven of peace and tranquility for your yoga practice.

We journey on to Paro, Bhutan’s only international airport.    Spend your first night in the picturesque Paro Valley at a 5-star boutique hotel. Built in traditional Bhutanese-style this resort is located on the edge of a beautiful forest.  Wake up to breathtaking views of Himalayan peaks in your deluxe villa.  The spacious wood-clad yoga studio looks out on one of Bhutan’s highest mountains, inspiring daily yoga practice.

Travel onwards to Thimpu, the only capital city in the world without traffic lights!  Spend two nights in our hand-picked hotel with excellent spa facilities and explore this fascinating little city.  Attend the colourful and dramatic Thimpu Tshechu. 

 We continue our journey via the scenic Dochu La Pass to Punakha which served as Bhutan’s capital for 300 years.  Walk to Chimi Lhakhang Monastery, one of the most revered temples in Bhutan, before reaching the magnificent Punakha Dzong, an ancient monastery built in 1637.  Situated on the confluence of two rivers, this is arguably the most beautiful dzong in Bhutan.  A short distance from Punakha, we spend two nights at a relaxing resort. 

After crossing the Cheli La Pass at 3,810 metres, explore the wonderful countryside, relax, and attend your yoga sessions at this stunning off the beaten track location.  Spend two nights in a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse in the picturesque Haa Valley.

Returning to Paro, watch a traditional Bhutanese archery match, and visit Paro Market.  Before leaving Bhutan, you will visit Taktshang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest), Bhutan’s most famous landmark.  A hike up through blue pines, passing water-powered prayer wheels, leads you to this most holy site.  This ancient monastery clings miraculously to a sheer cliff, rising 1,000 metres from the valley floor.  The views are magnificent over the Paro Valley and the only sounds to be heard are prayer flags blowing in the wind.
