Women’s Pilgrimage in the mountains of Nepal
With Yogita Bouchard
November 6 - 27, 2018
Join Yogita for a unique women’s pilgrimage to the Peekye Peak region of Nepal in November 2018.
Walking in Nepal brings us along ancients paths, traveled for hundreds of years until today. One step at the time we walk so that perhaps we can open ourselves to the timeless sense of presence within us. Letting something unfold…..with whatever intention we have in our our hearts and souls.
Historically, a pilgrimage was a sacred journey to a particular place- whether a shrine or a mountain- that was seen to hold a special spiritual power. For us today, It is a time to walk with a quiet intention, when we can go into a deeper self-acceptance and peace within ourselves.
All the logistics and support for this trip will be provided by Happy Feet Expeditions, a trekking company based out of Kathmandu that we have much experience with spanning over the last 6 years.
The trek to the Peekye peak area offers fantastic views of the Himalaya, ancient monasteries and bustling town markets. This is an area that is still largely off the normal tourist routes.
This will be a small group experience, limited to 10 participants.
Anyone who is in reasonable shape and in good health can accomplish this walk. Some days will be longer, a few harder then others but none require more then 6-8 hrs of walking at your own pace. This includes a leisurely lunch brake each day of 1.5-2.0 hours.
There is NO rush or NEED to keep up as you are free to walk at your own rythm.
This will be a mid elevation walk, with cooker nights around 0 C. and warm days where you can hike in short sleeves.
Once we leave Kathmandu, we will have our first 2 nights and the last night in guests houses. The other nights will be in tents with comfortable memory foams provided by Happy Feet.
