We spend the first days of the journey in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal, exploring the Pharping Valley and its many sacred sites. We spend the first days at beautifully located Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Pharping and receive daily guided meditation sessions and introduction to Buddhist philosophy. From here we journey southward to the birthplace of the Buddha in Lumbini, near the border between India and Nepal. We pilgrimage in Lumbini for a few days, visiting the Buddha’s birthplace and the sacred sites of the area.
We then journey 2-3 hours by road to a beautiful lodge near the Chitwan jungle. Here we can rest, swim in the pool, enjoy the amazing wildlife in the vicinity and the jungle surrounding us and go for walks with the elephants into the jungle. If we are lucky we will be able to spot rhinos, wild deer, birds and other wildlife. Upon our return to Kathmandu on day 8 & 9 we will stay at a nice guesthouse in the Tibetan area of Boudha in the eastern part of Kathmandu and pay homage to two of the most important and sacred Stupas in the region, Boudhanath and Swayambhunath.
