Yoga and trekking are two independent and beautiful adventures that give us wonderful experiences. Although they may seem to differ in nature, they complement the essence of each other eventually. The peace of mind, lightness of heart and strength of the physical body are the primary goal of these adventures in essence.

The trek offers a great display of the Annapurna Himalayas along with the warmth of unique Gurung culture. Also, the trek spans across the beautiful Annapurna Conservation Area.
