What People Are Saying

“This is a very unique experience. It’s my first time in Nepal. There were many worries and uncertainties before going. However, when we practiced yoga for the first time in the morning and witnessed the sunrise gradually turning the Annapurna South mountain into a golden hue, the awe and excitement were indescribable.

Doris combines yoga with trekking, and it has to be said that yoga training tailored for trekking has been beneficial for us. It helps reduce the risk of knee and ankle injuries during climbs and ascends, and the grips assist us in relaxing and maintaining balance.

The most surprising aspect of the entire trip was that both the accommodation and food exceeded our expectations! The team including the guides and porters were incredible and provided attentive service! This was a perfect and truly unforgettable journey of a lifetime!”  Ying, Nepal 2023 Trekker
