Welcome to Himalaya Yoga & Trek, that's me - Jo, taking a moment at the beautiful Garden of Dreams in Kathmandu.   If your a bit of an adventurer like me then I'm sure Nepal, Kathmandu and especially exploring the valleys and peaks of some of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world - The Himalayas,  is high on your bucket list.  Some destinations I believe at least, just don't warrant 'going it alone'.  Trekking for days in a foreign speaking country, in sometimes tough and unfamiliar terrain can be a daunting task.  Let me take the headache out of the equation for you and join me on one of my small escorted treks and tours to the exquisite Himalayas.  So much history, culture, friendly people and of course the magnificent Himalaya to feast your eyes on and take home memories you'll cherish forever.  Check out below my upcoming adventures and I look forward to hearing from you and sharing these special journeys with you soon.

 Namaste, Jo

 Abit about me :   My travel days started at the age of 18 in New Zealand when the wanderlust took hold and so I took myself off to discover Australia, USA, Mexico, Canada, Bahamas, most places in Europe, Egypt and too many other countries to mention and now I reside permanently in South Africa. 

 I'd pondered on Nepal for over 10 years until I took the plunge to discover what was drawing me there.  I found a complex culture, an ancient history and fascinating architecture.  An overload on the senses with a myriad of color, sounds, sights and delicious food - especially if you know where to find these hidden gems.  I couldn't stop going back again and again and each time reaffirmed for me that I waited too long - my whole story has changed, my path a new direction.  

 I feel I'm in the right places at the right time with the right people.

 I look forward to meeting you and being a part of your story -  just don't wait too long, I'd love to take you to Nepal - places to go, people to meet, new directions to find and follow.

  Looking forward to welcoming you to Nepal -  Namaste!
