Tara Linhardt will be leading an 8 Day Music, Arts, and Culture trip to NEPAL at the beginning of March (March 1st- March 9th). If you might be interested (or know someone who might be) email Tara at Taraworlds@gmail.com and she can send you more details.
One does not have to be in great shape or scale high mountains (unless they want to). It will be a small group with flexibility and a focus on seeing some of the main sites and also meeting and mingling, and possibly jammin if you want with really cool local artists, musicians, some options for meditation, yoga, and having a really magical and great time!
If folks are interested in staying after the tour is done to do a trek or study something more in depth or volunteer, Tara can also possibly help set you up with such things. She used to live and study with Nepali woodcarvers as well as having traveled, lived with, and performed with musicians around Nepal. She also lived and studied there for a year of college, so speaks the language and has lived and studied in some monasteries and ashrams in Nepal too.
She will be working in partnership with the Trek of Your Life company which has coordinated many tours to Nepal over the years.
If anyone is interested in hearing more details, seeing the itinerary, or has questions email her and she can send you the itinerary and registration forms that you can look over with no commitment required if you just want to look the materials over. Her email is Taraworlds@gmail.com.
Life can be a fun and magical adventure if you make it one!
