5 monasteries in Bhutan that must be visited

A dormant part of you awakens when you are in Bhutan. This is what travelers often claim to be an epiphany. A stream of consciousness that tells you that this is where you have always wanted to be. There is a need to explore more, sometimes it may be culture, history, sights and sounds but we are often in search of a spiritual experience too.

4 Best Treks in Tibet

Trekking in Tibet is like getting into a land that is not familiar with any other place in the planet. In Tibet’s vast, undisturbed wilderness, as far as you can see, great mountain ranges loom in the distance, their image protruding across the cloudless sky.

You will love the Himalayas, find out why.

What’s your fantasy about the Himalayas? Is it to climb towering mountains? Is it to find and enjoy that inner hippy in Kathmandu? Perhaps it would be to hike on centuries old paths, embracing the glorious mountains, or lastly it is finding your inner spiritual self. Maybe, it’s discovering the last frontiers in the Himalayas!

Nepal Luxury Tour

The part within you that longs to travel to the Himalayas, is mesmerized at the sight of nature’s wonders when you travel in luxury without the confines of time and hassle. Nepal is a place that deserves your wonder and can either be challengingly adventurous or a surprising soothing holiday experience. This ultra-luxury tour allows you to have the latter. Not many people who want to have a close look at Everest and a myriad other peaks can trek across the rugged terrain of Nepal, but with a helicopter ride, you can do just that without exhaustion. You can journey from one stunning view point to the next on a helicopter accompanied by an experienced guide who knows the locales and the stories of the mountain people. This also allows you time to visit Pokhara, where you can fly up to the different Base Camps which gives you striking views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Ranges. You then move to Chitwan – a national park that shelters the Royal Bengal Tiger and the One Horned Rhino amidst a crescendo of colors that Nepal’s forests display. Here, immerse yourself in nature with elephant-back riding and canoeing through the jungle waterways and enjoy a meal in the wild and supper by the banks of the gorgeous Rapti River. The last portion of the tour is around Kathmandu- a city emerged from a spiritual and mysterious history, a cultural haven whose artistic heritage has remained unchanged for a millennia.

Dochu La Pass

Among the tourists, this place is particularly important because of the 108 Druk Wangyal Khang Zhang Chortens and the clear views of mountains such as Mt. Gangkar Puensum (7,158 metres).

Bhutan Snowman Trek

This is the world that Kevin Grange wrote about in Beneath Blossom Rain: Discovering Bhutan on the toughest trek in the world. His acclaimed book is a reminder that a world exists that reminds us to “Live it all”. The Snowman trek is a reminder of why we seek nature out. This trek is difficult but it’s about losing yourself in the wilderness and finding ultimate bliss as nature draws you in and lets you out each minute. As you cross many high mountain passes, you look out to an entire mountain range that seem scattered, floating above the clouds like islands of snow. When you reach isolated hills, you can see the meadows below in a dreamlike series of flashes as the sun rays play across it.

When you cross Nyile La, the mountain pass of the Gods, you can see everything on earth dwarfed and the mountains standing on your shoulders and the only feeling you can muster up is humility! When you reach Shomuthang, you can see pastures uninhabited, unveiling each beautiful scenery piece by piece, allowing you time to process your overwhelming sensations. When you reach Laya village, you will have seen a world that is only about nature, where no one exists except beauty in its most pristine form. This trek is long and may not be for everyone. But it is a trail that awaits people who search for the elusive world of peace and isolation. For it is a world without ego, where everything else fades, where mirrors do not exist and where you can drown yourself and find resurrection. “Live it all” is what the Snowman Trek is all about. e. At the small Chozo Dzong there are some lay monks.
