Background 

Traverse the magical land of Khumbu Valley and its riches on the Everest Base Camp Trekking. The trek is a glorious trip across the Sagarmatha National Park, one of the UNESCO world heritage sites in Nepal. Likewise, the cultural richness of the ethnic Sherpa people is equally alluring as well. All in all, this trip is a perfect depiction of the diversity in nature and culture of Nepal.

There is so much of individual research claiming that regular yoga and meditation can help cope with simple things. From hangovers to improving flexibility, endurance, strength and balance of pre-trekking to assisting muscle soreness of post-trekking, yoga is widely acclaimed for its wonderful benefits for both our body and mind. Asanas help target weak points and build you up over time. The vast range of stretches significantly helps to prepare your knees, hip, and back from potential injuries.

Overview 

Firstly, the trip begins in Kathmandu and heads to the Tenzing Hilary Airport in Lukla on a short flight. Then, you start to trail along the Dudh Koshi River before entering the Sagarmatha National Park. The trek settles at Namche, which is the biggest trade hub in the Everest region. Here, you explore for a day and head to locations like Everest View Hotel and Khumjung village. From here, you follow the Imja River and head to Tengboche. As you enjoy the views of Mt. Ama Dablam (6856m), you will reach Dingboche.

The vantage point offers a surreal view of mountains like Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8516m), Ama Dablam (6856m), and many others. Finally, the return trip begins, and you retrace your steps via Thukla and Tengboche. Then, you return to Lukla via Namche Bazaar and fly back to Kathmandu.

Why Yoga with Trekking ? 

The instructor has always said stretching before any physical activity is important, so the same can be assumed for trekking. Having a regular practice of stretching and strengthening the body would have to be beneficial. More than just stretching, yoga offers a wide spectrum of benefits for one’s overall holistic upliftment on a long term basis.

What can benefit practicing Yoga Trekkers – Both Experienced and New ?

● Yoga helps reduce both the risk of being sore after trekking and the risk of injury during trekking.

● It helps build strength and stamina for longer trekking, more intense trails with ease.

● Yoga helps with your balance, and balance is great for trekking!
