In far west Nepal lies a remote valley very few outsiders know. The Nyinba Valley is a gorgeous mountainous realm, steeped in ancient Tibetan culture and lore. Experiencing a fraction of tourism that the central and eastern regions of Nepal witness, this will be a truly unique time as we visit villages, travel through untouched mountains, and spend time in and around culturally significant monasteries and other places of interest. Enjoy 8 nights in tents, with an awesome support staff, cook crew, and new friends.
Join us for a multi-week trek to Nepal starting 1 May 2021. This is the second trip to Nepal in partnership with Pangje and Mind Oasis. From Kathmandu; we are flying, driving, and trekking to where the snow leopards play — well off the normal tourist grid. Our guide is Brad Clement – the Founder and Executive Director of the Pangje Foundation. A professional mountaineer and guide for 20 years, with over 18 expeditions to the Himalaya, Brad is also a badass climber and good friend to Mind Oasis. Karuna, Founder and Executive Director of Mind Oasis, will be leading the retreat aspects of meditation, Dharma talks, and a service project for Pangje – a nonprofit organization committed to helping snow leopards and the local communities where snow leopards live and roam.
