Kathmandu, Nepal

With pilgrims and spiritual strolls around centuries-old stupas and monasteries and the constant backdrop of pristine mountains, Nagarjun, Kathmandu is a village in Baitadi District in the Mahakali Zone of Far-Western Nepal. Visiting this historic city is like stepping into another world of breath-taking Newari architecture, religious sites and tourist attractions. Nagarjun is a place where ancient traditions rub shoulders with the latest technology. The grandeur of the past enchants the visitor whose gaze may linger on an exquisitely carved wooden window frame, an 18th century bronze sculpture or a spiritually uplifting stupa.

Retaining its ancient traditions, Nagarjun Kathmandu is blessed by Living Goddess Kumari and is enriched by endless ceremonial processions and events that take to the streets every now and then with throngs of devotees seeking joy in spiritual celebrations. These religious festivals are steeped in legends and are quite a spectacle with chariot processions and masked dancers often possessed by the spirits of deities. Nagarjun, Kathmandu is a result of diverse culture and lifestyle, a long history of faith and beliefs, and of arts and architecture. Therefore, more than just a village, it is a living museum, it is an opportunity to travel back in time and to relive in the history.

The nearest airport, Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport, is the largest and only international airport in Nepal, located 5.5km east of the popular tourist neighborhood of Thamel. Commercial domestic flights are available to/from Bhadrapur, Bhairawa, Bharatpur, Biratnagar, Dhangarhi, Janakpur, Nepalganj, Pokhara, Simara, and Tumling Tar. Domestic flights take about an hour. The primary domestic airlines are Air Viva, Yeti, Nepal Airlines, and Buddha Air.

The Himalayan International Yoga Academy (HIYA) or Himalayan Yoga Resort is located in the countryside of Kathmandu, just 4.5 kilometers from tourist city Thamel and 11 kilometers from the airport. Founded in 2008, the centre was constructed with two eco houses called “Shiva” and “Buddha”, a typical Nepali style house named “Kailash Bungalow” and Safari Cottage Tents called “Bliss”, “Harmony”, “Tranquility” and “Wisdom”.

The retreat center is a pristine and spiritual holiday destination with a beautifully manicured garden. Experience nature like never before as you listen to the musical sound of nature and enjoy the warmth of the sun.

The retreat center has a Swagatgriha, a reception hall where guests are welcomed by the friendly staff of HIYA. Also, a Annagriha, which is where the food is prepared and the dining facilities are located. Enjoy a healing chamber known as Aarogyagriha, which is for deep relaxation, therapy and spa treatments. Continue the journey and enter the house of six cleansing acts for cleansing the different gates of the body known as Shuddigriha. For a more relaxing mindful cleanse you can find yourself at Chaitanyagriha, which is a house of prayer and a library with yoga textbooks.
