Venue Highlights

Springtime in Nepal is spectacular: the flowers, the clear, majestic mountain views, the warm weather and a magic in the air. The Himalayas have always been associated with healing, inspiration, spirituality and of course, yoga! Since ancient times, yogis have meditated in these mountains to acquire deep insight.

There's a reason why so many people are drawn to the Himalayas… the incredible beauty that makes the eyes widen, the kindness of the people that makes your heart expand and a feeling of peace and freedom that you can only find here. It is something that cannot be explained and can only be experienced.
