Spiritual and pilgrimage tours will take you to places that are religiously significant all over Asia. Asian countries like Nepal, India, Tibet, and Bhutan all have places that are very religiously significant. If you are a Buddhist or a Hindu then there is no other place in the world better than Asia. Even if you are not and are only trying to follow the path of peace then you should definitely try spiritual retreat in Nepal. Nepal is the birthplace of Buddha and the Himalayan nation offers a lot of places that are secluded and peaceful, just the right ambiance for yoga and meditation. There are also places with high spiritual energy. Places in which great yogis and masters have meditated for years and attained enlightenment.

The best season to go on a spiritual and pilgrimage tour is spring, autumn, and early winter. During these seasons the temperature of daytime is neither too hot nor too cold. But the early morning and late evening during autumn and early winter can get little chilly. Summers are hot while you will get snow and rain in winter and monsoon. Spring and autumn months are actually the best time for this tour as most of the religiously significant festivals fall during the spring months and autumn months. Being in these countries during these religiously significant festivals definitely adds a highlight to your pilgrimage tour. The significant festivals are Holi and Dashain festivals in Nepal and Tshechu in Bhutan.

I am Werner Berger and my "claim to fame" is probably best defined as being in the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest person in the world to have climbed the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest.
Little did I know my life was to change forever on my first trek into the Himalaya in 1992 at age 55. It was the beginning and just a matter time before I realized I could combine my leadership and climbing skills to create a program in which people could explore their own possibilities.
So, in 2010, I began leading Transformational Life Experiences, treks to Mt. Everest Base Camp and other high places.
One of the earliest keys to success is to find a company with the right mix of professionalism, support, and, of course, experience. I have used Naba Amgai and his teams on all my Nepal trekking adventures.
Naba's caring and climber support, is second to none. In my estimation, Third Rock Adventures is one of the very best in the business, in or outside of Nepal. They know the mountains. So you can relax, enjoy and transform.
