The 7 Days yoga retreat and Kathmandu tour is a perfect short holiday package in Nepal. We have designed this package for a family tour. Moreover, it's also a kid-friendly tour, so you can travel with your toddlers and make lifelong memories. This package has all the essence of spirituality, cultural richness, and beautiful mountain views. This specific package is for everyone, whether you are a professional yogi or a beginner.
Yoga in Nepal means you learn a lot about original and traditional yoga with its fundamental principles. Led by professional yogis, you'll find yourself around like-minded people in quest of peace and spirituality in the academy during the sessions. As cell phones are prohibited at the time of yoga sessions, you'll get a chance to disconnect from the fake digital world and connect with nature & your higher self.
What makes this yoga tour even more interesting is we have two full days of sightseeing in Kathmandu. Not only that, you'll drive to a nearby hill station for a quick gateway and relish excellent mountain views. The tour likewise introduces you to Nepali art and architecture. You explore ancient palaces, temples, monasteries, courtyards, and museums. And the trip ends with shopping in the local market.

Enjoying a gorgeous sunrise with mountain views on the following day, you drive back to Kathmandu stopping at Bhaktapur Durbar Square and Patan Durbar Square enroute.
Kathmandu Valley is divided into three parts; Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, and Lalitpur. In the past, all these three places were separate kingdoms and ruled by different kings. So, we have three mediaeval places in Kathmandu valley. The Bhaktapur Durbar Square is known for its 55 Windows Palace, the golden gate, ancient temples, etc. Likewise, the intriguing Newar architecture of Patan Durbar Square will leave you in awe. Both of these places have a significant history, shrines, courtyards, temples, and palaces.
