Natraj Trekking is one of the oldest trekking agency that has been organizing yoga tour & trek in Nepal for their clients. The Yoga and Trekking Program combines two of Nepal’s most distinct traditions.
Introducing Yoga into the Trekking experience permits for a richer appreciation of the physical and mental landscape as the body and mind are opened through daily Meditation, Yoga, Stretching, Massage, and Trekking. The combination of these elements generates a more fulfilling physical exercise while strengthening and opening the mind for greater relaxation and awareness all within the beautiful natural environment provided by the Himalayas. The program is open for all experience levels and ages and is a unique opportunity for those interested in the strengthening of both the body and mind.
Suggested Yoga Trek in Nepal by Natraj Trekking
Panchassee Yoga Trek (6 Days)
Panchassee Mountain is an ancient pilgrimage climbing from the level of Fewa Lake to about 2500 meters, from where excellent views of the Annapurna mountain-massif are possible. There are wonderful trekking trails in every direction to the five peaks of this holy mountain. Thickly forested, Panchassee wears a garment of very lush vegetation: tree orchids, Rhododendron blooms and colorful flowers. She wears in Her hair throughout each year. In the above photo is shown a group of exotic village lodges forty-five minutes below the summits on the Gatee-Cheena route.
One of the delights that trekking around Panchassee can bring is a visit to her tiny lake nestled in jungle, as if a jewel below the western summit. As a female symbol for the “waters of our being”, this lake is a basis for the Mountain’s motherhood. There are old, stone-stepped pilgrimage approaches upon which we climb past grassland greens and into vastnesses of Yoga symbols for which this Mountain is famous. Panchassee is a unique nature experience that provides inspiring vistas at every turn of the path: but be ready for serious exercise during the climb! Clouds over Fishtail Mountain
“Panchassee” means “five seats of the Divine Mother”: “Panch” means five, “as” is from the root word of Asana (the Yoga schools of physical posture) meaning a a seat or place, and the double “ee” represents the female gender. The symbol of five represents an ancient Yoga system in which there are experienced five levels of existence. Three of these levels are of our thinking, feeling and sensing, with the Above and Below completing this symbol of manifestation. Just as Everest, Annapurna or Daulagiri, Panchassee is a divine Mountain-mother to the local people, visible during annual Mela celebration in November.
