Spiritual Tours are a combination of learning meditation and experiencing Nepal. The main idea of the spiritual tours is to give the visitors time to relax and meditate at their own pace whilst enjoying the serene quality of the world’s largest and most spiritual mountain range ‘The Himalayas’ of Nepal. We offer personalized tours and try to make sure that people learn something new about themselves every day. We are not only concerned with the quality of outward experience but also about the inner journey. After all, the true essence of spirituality is to connect back with your true self again. People on our tours don’t only take away memories, but also experiences which sometimes define their being. We take our tour members to some of the most serene and spiritually rich places on the face of planet earth and teach them how meditation can be practiced.

Buddhism has the power and strength to transform the lives of people of all walks of life forever. This is beautifully illustrated in the legendary commitment to Buddhism of King Ashoka, after the battle of Kalinga in Orissa. The great king was enthusiastic in spreading the Buddha’s message of peace and enlightenment across the length and breadth of his vast empire, reaching from present day Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. Buddhism travelled to Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and the countries of South East Asia, even to far flung Central Asia, China and Japan, under the umbrella of royal patronage and the dedication of its vast community of monks, teachers and artists. The essence of Buddhism is embodied in the concept of the 4 noble truths and the 3 jewels (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha) via the 8-fold path to salvation and peace. Anticipating his death in his 80th year, Buddha urged his followers, especially his chosen disciples, to continue his work after his imminent Mahaparnirvana; the attaining of nirvana (enlightenment).
