Hi

COMPANIONS OR GROUP REQUIRED

I am planning a bagpacking trip to india and nepal in late summer or whenever this pandemic situation ends. I have been thinking of this trip for a long time and few weeks ago i finish this book called Hippie by Paulo coelho which is about a similiar trip and now i am quite sure of my plans this trip will be decided to meditation and spiritual enlightment , better mind and mental health.

Now for details

I live in Ottawa canada and this is where i will be staring my trip from , i am also indian so i know the language in india and nepal both. My ideal trip will not exceed 3 weeks and i am looking for a group that is planning or will be taking a similar trip in near future or individual from any country who is looking for such a trip but dont want to solo travel.

I have lived in india so i know a lot about both countries and i am totally flexible with the duration and dates of the trip

Also any recommendations on any must visit place in nepal will be really appreciated.

thanks
Have a good one.

You might enjoy reading Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. You may have already read it, but if not, it goes quickly and is inspiring and peaceful. We could all use some peace these days.

Good luck on your trip.

There should be a qualification to James David's suggestion of visiting Jagganath temple in Puri. Those who are not Hindu are not allowed inside the temple. Non-Hindus can get a good rooftop view and take photos (especially with a long zoom lens) from the Raghunandan Library across the street for a small gift. Make sure you watch a priest climb to the top of the temple daily to change the flag. It's an impressive sight.

Sounds good!

Don't miss places like Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Lumbini. Besides, you can also visit monasteries n Kathmandu and Pokhara. If you would like to trek further, then visit monasteries in Annapurna and Everest Region.

Good Luck with your trip!
Welcome to Nepal.

But the original poster didn't ask for a list of places.

I also note the only thing in your profile is a link to the facebook page of an internet marketing (aka spamming) organisation. Convince me you're not a spammer, put some actual details in your profile and your posts.
