YOUR HOME

Our home in Kathmandu is a beautiful boutique hotel in a quiet area of Kathmandu, in walking distance of the Tourist district. From here we easily reach the medieval squares and temples that we will visit. The hotel is co-run by the staff, who have some other small entrepreneurial ventures in the hotel as well, such as a small restaurant with a special tea garden.

In Pokhara we will stay at a Yoga Retreat Center where we will have delicious meals and do our morning yoga practices outside with the views of the mountains. The vegetarian local food is organic and home grown, prepared daily by the local Nepali chef.

Our stay during the trek will be a basic but also local and impressive experience of our time in Nepal. We stay in guesthouses along the route, that are run by local villagers. In the evening we join the host family with their meals and sit around the fireplace playing cards, exchanging our cultures.

After the hike we pamper you with a recovery stay in the well-known Temple Tree Resort, where you can relax at the pool and enjoy the incredible vibe of the resort.
 

Temple Tree Resort & Spa is a boutique hotel combining western standards with the distinctive architecture and culture of Nepal's Western Himalayas. Named after the fragrant temple tree plant frangipani found here, we offer a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, privacy when preferred and attentive service.

WHY WE DO IT & WHAT YOU GET

Our vision is to give you an experience that will combine spiritual and physical well being. When coming to Nepal, you enter a different reality and mindset, in which we will cherish and stimulate you to look at your life at the moment and find where you want to make changes.

On our trip we will create a safe but also culturally challenging environment and we are here to help each other both professionally and personally.

We choose the best possible settings, partners, and locations for you to focus and learn something new about yourself and others. On this trip you will learn to challenge yourself physically through yoga and trekking in the mountains. But also mentally challenge yourself by meditation and looking forward to your ambitions for the future.

We want to support the local economy and we work with nepali businesses, and give back wherever we can.

We will be with you at all the elements of this trip, supporting you when needed. Going on a Workretreat with us means getting out of your comfort zone. You will explore new things, meet new friends and get different insights and perspectives on your mind and body.

Do I need a visa?

Yes, to go to Nepal you need a visa, but visas are available on arrival. Be sure to carry two passport photos and US dollars to pay for the fee. Your passport must be valid at least six more months and you need to have a whole empty page for the visa.

Do they have toilet paper in Nepal?

They do. Your accommodation will be equivalent to the western standards, and toilet paper can be bought in most places in case you want to bring some for excursions/trips.

How is the internet?

We need to be very honest with you. The internet is not gonna be as you know it from your home. At your accommodation it is good enough to surf, skype and make whats app calls, but you might have an occasional bump in the line.

Will it be dirty?

Yes and No! Nepal does not have western standards. I can be compared to India. Our hosts know what westerns expect and take hygiene very seriously. Still you need to remember where you are. Pollution, Dust and Trash on the streets are big problems in Kathmandu. However, the stunning beauty of the country really makes up for it! Dive into this cultural adventure! It is soooo worth it!
