A women’s pilgrimage in the mountains of Nepal

About us

Join  Yogita  for a  unique women’s pilgrimage to the Peekye Peak region of Nepal in November 2018.GLUNS_171116_3749

Our Pilgrimage trek will be supported by Happy Feet Expeditions, a Nepalese company based out of Kathmandu that I have worked with a number of times before. There are professional, detail orientated, and bring a big smile to everything they do. Happy Feet will pick you up at the airport, arrange and provide accommodations in Kathmandu, and deal with all of the logistics of our  15 day walk in the Himalayas. Setting up tents, cooking meals and making sure the donkeys carrying your gear arrive safely each day at camp.

As a Canadian who has traveled to Nepal three times before I have been touched by the simplicity and joy of these people and their culture. How much they give  of themselves with  such generosity,  especially given how little they have.  With this in mind our pilgrimage will give those who wish an opportunity to help  with specific projects that are underway in  Nepal and be of service  to those of greater need. This aspect of the trek is optional, and we will be focused upon three projects that are listed below.

 

Our Nepalese partners require payments for this trek  in US dollars. The total cost of this trip is $2350 US dollars. To hold your reservation and secure a space on this trip a payment of $650 is paid via this website and the remainder of the payment in US dollars will be due July 1st 2018.

Here is a brief description of each of the three projects, run by the altitude project ( www.altitudeproject.ca ) that you may wish to support through donation or fundraising: Remember this is optional and up to you.

LuminAid solar lights give people the gift of light. Many homes in the remote  Regions of Nepal do not have any artifical light and rely soley on the light of their fire in the evenings. These relatively inexpensive, robust solar lights provide villagers with a light source for their homes and, because they are portable, allow for them to be used in and around the home. Extremely useful for visits to the toilet at night !

Here are a few pix of those light that were given on our trip to the Upper Dolpo in November 2017.

Nyma’s hostel for students from Koma a remote village in the Upper Dolpo Region of Nepal.Nyima was in the first class of graduate from the Saldang School. She wrote: “Saldang School is very, very  important, it opened the light in my life. I am very grateful to the people who supported my studies. The only way I could give back to those supporters was to work as a teacher in Komas, my village in the remote mountains  of the Upper Dolpo, a full day’s walk east of Saldang village.The children graduated from her class 6could not afford to continue their education in Kathmandu so her father, a revered lama, with generous help from the donors in Spain, set up a hostel for them Kathmandu. Unfo

tunately, there was not enough money to pay anyone to care for the children so her father asked her to volunteer. She currently cares for 26 students, her first group of students are now in class 10. She still has not been paid. We will fundraise to help create a small salary for her and visit her hostel in Kathmandu.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Mind training for post-retreat life! Renate
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
