The Kathmandu Valley and its surroundings are the centers of Buddhism with many monasteries and gumbas.  Nepal, the land of the Himalayas, has been a safe and sacred place for Buddhism for centuries.

There are many mythological myths in Nepal so Buddhist pilgrimage is also an opportunity to explore spiritual sites, meditation caves, monasteries, and stupas in Nepal.

Frequently asked questions about this trip

What is altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness is normally known as acute mountain sickness. This can happen when people rapidly climb up to an altitude of more than 3000 meters. We ensure minimal risk by adding rest to our trekking itineraries. Most people will feel some effects of altitude, some shortness of breath and possibly light headache, this is normal enough. Acute mountain sickness patients are quite different and usually have a serious headache, sickness, and lose awareness.
