Madan Yoga calls to join for the Yoga Trek & Tour in Mustang, Nepal - going to be held this October 15-27, 2022!
The former kingdom of Mustang could almost completely preserve its originality, traditions and culture due to its isolated location. Due to these geographical and cultural peculiarities, it is a real jewel for travel and yoga - and a time travel many centuries back in time. Tibetan cultures and unique landscape will accompany you throughout this yoga tour. So close to the horizon, the Himalayan mountains merge here with the sky and the earth.
For this yoga tour, we will pick you up at Kathmandu International Airport (arrival: 15th October 2022) and our tour group will get-together at the hotel in Kathmandu. We will visit the ancient, sacred sites of Kathmandu, before leaving together to Pokhara. From there, our journey to the mountains will start.
