Trip facts


This is a very special program. Offered as a 1-week introduction to Shamanism, it will allow students to gain a better understanding of Shamanistic tradition. Students will be put on an individual program within a group of max 6 people with the purpose of bringing western students together with Himalayan shamans, both to preserve this priceless ancient knowledge and to bring the practice and healing techniques to the western world.

Western students on this one-week introductory program will observe ancient shamanic ceremonies in which the costumed shaman, aided by traditional drumbeats and dance, travel to seek the deities and spirits who assist in the healing work to be done. The course begins in the outskirts of beautiful Kathmandu valley and includes short excursions to shrines and to nature for outdoor experiences which are as equally important as the knowledge that students acquire in the classroom.

Acclimatization

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.

Why Tipping is essential?

There are several reasons why you should tip in Nepal. It is quite the same as for what you tip in restaurants. They live in remote areas that are far from proper health and education facilities. Tipping them will additionally encourage them to manage good and nutritive food to eat, warm and comfortable clothes to wear or other necessary basic requirements to maintain their livelihood in a comfortable way. A small gesture of gratitude will do no harm to you but actually changes the lives of many people for a long time in many reasons. Our company has its fund collected from the some percentage of profit and sometimes from the tips of our guests which will directly invested for uplifting the economic condition of guides, porters and other staffs of office. It’s nothing more than the way to add smiles on those laborious faces.
