Drala Adventures announces the March 2009 launch of its premiere Spiritual Adventure Tour, an eight-day package that offers a behind-the-scenes spiritual, cultural and educational journey to Kathmandu. Led by a team of Tibetan Buddhist masters and Western Dharma teachers, each day provides travelers the opportunity for learning and personal transformation, while enjoying luxury accommodations at the new Kathmandu Hyatt Regency Hotel.
During each trip, travelers will explore six UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the Buddhist stupas of Boudhanath and Swayambhunath, the Durbar Margs ('Palace Squares') of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur, and the famous Hindu temple Pashupatinath. They will also visit working Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and ancient caves.
Two journeys to Kathmandu are scheduled in March 2009: March 20-28 and March 28-April 5. Price per person, excluding airfare, is $9,985 double occupancy for adults, and $5,900 double occupancy for students and ages 18 and under. Custom dates are available for groups of 7+ travelers.
