Tour Details

Spiritual Trekking in Nepal – Discover the profound experience of spiritual trekking in Nepal, where external and internal harmony converges. In this journey, you will connect with the life forces, find spiritual healing, and immerse yourself in the rich culture of Nepalese Shamanism.

Shamanism represents the ancient spiritual practices of indigenous cultures and tribes within the Nepalese community. The objective of Spiritual Trekking in Nepal is to cultivate both external and internal harmony by connecting with life forces, facilitating spiritual healing, and exploring the Nepalese Shaman culture and its sacred practices. In rural Nepal, Shamanism is often referred to as Dhami/Jhakri or healing doctors. In ancient times, people firmly believed in the ability of Jhankris to heal through the use of spells (Tantras/Mantras) and ceremonial drumming.
