Rugged Trails is excited to welcome experienced and novice yogis alike to our Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek! Combine the experience of trekking on one of the planet’s most well-known and scenic routes with the spiritual practice of yoga. Deepen the understanding of natural world while further developing yourself and your spirit.

Spend days hiking towards the top of the world, disconnecting from your devices and becoming closer to your inner self. Listen to nothing more than your own footsteps and the wind as you follow the peaceful trail up to Everest Base Camp (5364 meters). This trip is a life changer. Enter Sagarmatha National Park, and feel the special energy. In fact, Sagarmatha National Park is deemed a natural World Heritage Site of Nepal. In addition, yoga has been listed as a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage. Combining the two provides the experience of a lifetime.

Each day begins with meditation, pranayama, and asana practice, followed by a delicious and filling breakfast prepared by the local Sherpa people. To start the day this way is to have a refreshed and self-reflective consciousness throughout the day. Let your eyes wander from peak to peak, acknowledging their beauty. Watch your breath be taken away by their sheer beauty. Become present is each passing moment as you are detached from the outside world.

18 Days Everest Base Camp Yoga Trekking via Gokyo Lakes
Upon arrival to the tea house each night, have a rest and then again flow through an asana practice to facilitate growth and healing for our mind and spirit. Not only will the practice of yoga be beneficial for our mind and spirit during the trek, but it will help our bodies stay healthy and prevent soreness. After dinner, a guided meditation and/or Satsang is offered before resting for the night.
After some days of climbing through the thinning air, reach Gokyo Valley where five sacred lakes lie next to the massive Ngozumpa Glacier. The aquamarine colored bodies of water are something out of this world. The scene gets better as we summit Gokyo Ri (5360 meters), a towering lookout above the village. From here, the early morning hike brings you to heartstopping views of Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Cholatse, Taboche, and Mount Everest.

Reaching the base of Mount Everest is of course a major highlight of the trek. An even better viewpoint, though, lies at Kala Patthar (5545 meters), also the highest point of the trek. From here, you can see several of the highest peaks in the world. Focus your attention on Mount Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, and more sky-high peaks.
While you are not doing yoga or hiking, spend some time to interact with the locals, who belong to the Sherpa ethnic group. They are a peaceful group of people and are devoted to Tibetan Buddhism. Signs and shrines of Buddhism – including chhortens, mani walls, prayer flags, and monasteries – are scattered throughout the trail.
Our licensed guides are well experienced in the Everest region, and ensure that the group is safe and informed on environmental conditions. Our certified yoga teacher will guide you through your yoga practice each day with the aim to inspire you to watch and value every breath, and deepen yourself into the magical land of the Everest region.
The Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek is a profound experience. It will be cherished for the rest of your days and we hope that the realizations that you make during the journey will enrich you for the rest of your life. Please ask us if you have any questions about the trip!

Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.

Trip Note

  • If there will be below 10 members, yoga trek will be canceled or normal trekking will be made at normal price.

  • Kathmandu - Lukla or Lukla - Kathmandu flight may be canceled due to the bad weather, we request you to put extra buffer day if possible!.

Passport / visa
A valid permit is required for most areas in Nepal, which we will obtain upon your arrival. We will require two working days and two passports size photographs. There are two major permits, which are National Park permits and special regional permits for restricted area permits (Upper Mustang, Manaslu, Dolpa, etc.).

Important information
Always carry Nepalese rupees in small bills on your trek. The amount of care depends on the area and the duration of the trek. A guideline for this will be presented during our trek briefing. The money will only be required for the purchase of soft/hard bottled drinks and souvenirs along the way. Other money and valuables should be kept in a safe deposit box in your hotel in Kathmandu.

Altitude sickness 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.
Acclimatizations 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 Attitude mountaineering System. The AMS may be mild enough to go away with a days 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. As a result of the growing awareness of altitude problems, there is only one death from AMS in Nepal out of every 30,000 trekkers and climbers. Even these deaths would be avoidable if everyone knew how to respond to AMS. There are no reliable figures for casualties among porters.
