Yoga Retreat Trek
795

Experience the calm and tranquility with reenergizing yoga in the lap of nature with the Yoga Retreat Trek. The Yoga Retreat Trek is a beautiful combination of nature, culture, and yoga that takes you to the outskirts of Pokhara and exposes you to the warm hospitality of the Gurung people. An ideal trek for yoga and nature lovers, this trek allows the yogis to perform their art in form of the majestic Himalayas.

The trek starts with an exploration of the Pokhara city, where you can see the reflection of the snowcapped mountains on the surface of the beautiful Phewa Lake. Yoga in the lakeside area would be an amazing indulgence in the peaceful nature. The trek to Sirubari unveils a remote Gurung village with warm and welcoming people. Famous for its home-stay, the village looks traditional with all the stone buildings including the monastery. A viewpoint nearby Thumro (2300m) is an ideal point to practice yoga along with the view of gorgeous peaks of the Annapurna Himalayan Range. The trek also takes you to the small village of Karkineta, widely known for its traditional musical instrument–Naumati Panche Baja. The route through the lush green forest of rhododendron takes you to  Panchase Bhayanjang, from where a hike up to Panchase Peak (2500m) provides a stunning sunrise view over the snow-capped peaks of Annapurna South (7219m) and Machhapuchhre (6993m). The dawn is the best time for yoga while viewing the sunrise amidst the mountain range. The trek comes to an end as you reach Bhadaure and drive back to Pokhara.
