How to spend 3 days in Kathmandu Nepal

7 reviews
This 3-day trip package will involve the sight seeing in the six out of ten-world heritage site of Nepal which is all situated in Kathmandu Valley. Here you will experience the pleasure of hiking, the bird’s eye view of the famous mountain ranges like Annapurna, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Everest, a sweet melodious sun-rise and cultural, religious and architectural beauty.<br>Your journey begins from the very airport from where you will be picked up where you will observe locals enjoying themselves and also monkeys living their life to the fullest. Next is the sunrise from the most popular hill station with view of whole Kathmandu valley and eight mountain ranges. This easy 3-day trip ends rather religiously mixing up the Hindu and Buddhist religions i.e. the most important and sacred place to the people of these religions.

I was very fortunate for being able to stay as a single student at nepal yoga academy with chantamani - guruji. I got a very focused course, focused care & attention, all my questions and outside-the-norm wishes were fulfilled as well. Sometimes we sat after dinner for a Q&A, we adapted the course content a bit to my preferences. All in all, here you will learn all the basics skill of yoga and an philosophical/theoratical understanding of what yoga actually is and all its different types. Guruji seems to be very passionate and well-experienced when it comes to teaching, meaning he knows what problems students face initially and how to explain and show them how to improve. Guruji was very passionate for me, not hesitating to offer more than the standard and also taking me to the physiotherapist and around the area for a bit of farewell - sightseeing :)

I first did 200 hours YTT course at Nepal Yoga Academy with Dr. Chintamani Gautam. During the course I found learning environment was really effective and pleasant. As far as I know, Dr. Chintamani Gautam is one of the magnificent personality in the field of yoga. Course is effective and inspiring for those who wants to deepen their yoga knowledge. Especially teaching method and interactive way in the class was so inspiring. Philosophical part was life changing. I decided to continue advance training to complete 500. It was in small group. We had so many chances to get personal assistance from Dr. Chintamani to improve Advance poses, idea of sequencing asana for different level of people, benefits and important precautions of each asana. Course covers all the fundamental things to meet the quality for a yoga teacher. The best attraction of the academy is; delicious food, fresh and greenery nature, beautiful rooms and comfortable bed, friendly staff and the great hospitality. I would love to recommend all those people who are wondering for teacher training course and yoga retreat in Nepal. Nepal Yoga Academy will be great destination for your plan. Namaste

The view is one of the best in kitmandu the food is fresh and delicious . The yoga is too notch .the meditation and Pranayama is peaceful and relaxing and the people are incredible. When I should up and left with a new sense of what yoga actually is and how much it can benefit your life . Dr Chintamani Gautam is an amazing yoga philosophir and instructor .

Happy international yoga day a custom session even though you are in a class with other people and he's great at the guided meditation and even better at making me feel completely at home and part of the family during COVID19 from day one I know we would be friends for life .

Positive: food is good, never get hungry, just after a week, the flavour gets the same, taste bud feels bored. Negative: Chintamni the so called PhD, has no knowledge about philosophy, he only has expensive car, big house, golden airplane in his head. His head is empty except those things. You know some people who studied phd and started business and never learned anything after that. All he does is to accumulate wealth, and he is teaching you self realisation, how funny. He has the biggest ego in the world. Philosophy is poorly taught. They teach many asanas, but not correctly. The teaching technique is like you went to a yoga class, not a yoga teacher training class. Which would you choose? Learn 100 asanas incorrectly, or 30 asanas correctly? He is very loud, gives me headache. He is a very good businessman. He takes students, make students comfortable, give them certificates, and take photos and post online. Be careful guys!

I give it 2 stars for the food and people working in the kitchen. And the room. Nice and clean room with a good view. There are more people working in the kitchen than teachers. The introduction on the first day is very rushed into, only took less than one hour, you get books that’s already put on the floor in front of the mat. You don’t get cleansing kit which is advertised on the website. Then you introduce your name and nationality and why come to attend the training course. Then you got a red dot between eyebrow and the teacher said welcome, that’s it. Don’t feel any hospitality or rituals. Chintamani is very rude and impatient, sigh all the time. He’s very loud, shouting a lot. Never listens. Never answers your question. He will stop you before you finish. Just blabla a lot. His philosophy class is terrible, only information from book, no personal insight, no enlightenment. He is more a business man. His temper is nothing that a yoga teacher should have. The yoga hall is not like on picture. On the picture shows bamboo house, that’s for retreat. The real school is in a white house on the other side of the mountain, where all staff and Chintamani family live. There’s a schedule orally told by him. But he is always late for the class. Never on time. Classes never start on time. Asanas sessions they begin right away from warm up and asanas. There’s no teaching of some basics. The course is very hasty, fast paced. I wouldnt recommend this place. Be careful what you choose for your teacher training course, it’s very important what kind of teacher you have. PhD doesn’t mean anything. It doesn’t make you a good teacher and person.
