Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek as a Spiritual Awakening. Nepal, known to many as a trekker’s paradise, offers a charming Himalayan view combined with golden temples, scenic hill villages, and jungle wildlife. The Nepal Himalayas are the ultimate travel destination for mountain lovers. Known as the land of gods and goddesses, Nepal holds many temples for Hindus and Buddhists. Ancient temples still stand in many corners of the towns of Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. What is more amazing about this country is that, despite the differences in religion, there has never been any conflict in their spiritual practices. Hindus would worship at the Buddhist temple, and Buddhists would do the same.

Boasting the world’s highest mountain, Nepal is a country of adventure for outdoor lovers and mountaineers. A fantastic trekking experience awaits every individual, with so many mountains and towering snowy summits. There is the 7132-meter Mount Api, the 8586-meter Kanchenjunga, and the looping trek encircling the Annapurna Range. Of course, the most loved and most challenging of them all is Mt. Everest, which stands at 8848 meters. Everest Base Camp (ECB), also known as the “tent city," is the most highly recognized trekking destination in the world. Here, mountaineers making an attempt to reach the summit set up tents and sleeping bags. With the destination’s popularity, trekking services and infrastructure have increased over the years. There are lodges and modern luxuries available at the Base Camp that include hot showers, Wi-Fi, trekking and tour packages, yoga lessons, massages, and more.

Yoga as a Spiritual Discipline

Yoga, by definition, means to connect or unite. More than just physical exercise, it cultivates your inner soul and enhances overall wellness. It improves your body's strength, relieves stress, sharpens the mind, and calms the nervous system. For many people, yoga is practiced to enhance their inner spirituality. Yoga is a mental practice that goes deeper than just having a toned body and perfect abs. When you practice yoga, you become aware of the spirit or energy within you. You cultivate a sense of mindfulness for that greater driving force, the motivation or logic behind why we think and do what we do.
It is known in the yoga culture that Shiva is the first guru or the first yogi. Shiva was happy no matter what state he was in, whether he was dancing or just sitting still. His first teaching to his wife and consort Parvathi was all about intimacy—being graceful and radiant. Intimacy in yoga does not mean sexuality; it refers to conformity and acceptance. The second lesson was extended to the Sapta Rishis. It taught the fundamental processes of life—gaining mastery over the process of creation and detachment.

          Helpful Tips for the Everest Base Camp Yoga Retreat in Nepal. 
          Always carry Nepalese rupees in small bills on your trek. The amount of care depends on the area and the duration of the trek.

          Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek From Kathmandu

          Altitude sickness is a serious consideration if you are climbing or trekking in Nepal, and it is essential that you investigate the causes, symptoms, and treatment of altitude sickness before you travel to Nepal. There are approximately three deaths per year in Nepal from altitude sickness, but with the right precautions, there is no reason why you should become one of these statistics.
          Acclimatization is the word used to describe the adjustments your body makes as it ascends. You should adjust your schedule so that you average no more than 400 meters per day of ascent above 3,000 meters. If you fail to allow time for acclimatization, you may develop symptoms of the Attitude Mountaineering System. The AMS may be mild enough to go away with a day of rest or, if ignored, may lead to death. All that is required to ensure a safe trek is basic awareness of AMS and a willingness to rest or descend if you develop symptoms. Day Tours Nepal designs its itinerary based on elevation.
