Hummingbird Bhutan & Nepal: Aug 26-Sept 7 2018

A Journey into Self Reflection


Forests and Monasteries of Bhutan & The Snow-Capped Himalayas of Nepal


Hummingbird retreats presents a unique 14 Days amongst the hidden wonders of the Kingdom of Bhutan and an easy trek to the Highest hotel in the world in Namche, Nepal.

Paro and the Kingdom of Bhutan (26-31 Aug 2018)

Nestled deep in the eastern Himalayas between India and Tibet is the Kingdom of Bhutan and its people with a love of nature and kinship. Travel to ancient monasteries built without a single nail and experience breathtaking mountain views, prayer-wheel waterfalls and blue pine and rhododendron forests. The beautiful Zhiwa Ling Hotel will be our base as we start each day with qigong practice and meditation. Six wonderful days with so much insight to gain. Visit ancient monasteries such as the Tiger’s Nest and receive blessings from the Lamas. Be absorbed in the rhythm of life and know the happiness of Bhutanese people.

Kathmandu to Lukla and Namche, Nepal (1-6 sept 2018)

Flying to Lukla from Kathmandu, we walk from the Khumbu Gateway, gently downhill on pitched stone trails, through low rhododendron forests, small ‘garden’ farms and old and new hamlets, to the banks of the foaming Dudh Koshi River. We make several river crossings on wire suspension bridges and make short stops to meet the locals and take photographs. Soaking up the scenery and the clear mountain air, the trail now reveals inspiring views of 6000m snow-capped peaks high above. We arrive at our beautiful overnight accommodation in Phakding, Monjo and finally, Namche, overlooking Everest and the ever-still giants of the Himalayas. Day 5 (Nepal) and we take a helicopter over Everest Base Camp and land at Kalapathar, hopping out onto the ice for five minutes for a grand viewing of Everest. Returning to Kathmandu by scenic helicopter, we will transfer to the Yak & Yeti Hotel for the evening, concluding Hummingbird Retreat Bhutan & Nepal on Day 13.

The Legacy Retreats

Emotional healing, intellectual mindfulness and spiritual awareness.

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to Legacy Retreat, an extraordinary journey of healing and reflection.

Legacy is based on our unique, powerful and nurturing programme of emotional healing, intellectual mindfulness and spiritual awareness.

Daily workshops are conducted with exquisite insight and wisdom by our co-heads of Integrated Therapy, Jutka Freiman and Volker Krohn, who have decades of experience advising thousands of clients worldwide and are considered master practitioners in the fields of psychotherapy, meditation and coaching.

Our therapists will also be available throughout the Retreat for individual or couples sessions to discuss particular issues with complete privacy.

The therapy workshops are complemented and integrated on a body level through a custom-tailored series of Ayurvedic and Oriental Medicine-based treatments and daily Qi Gong practice with our leading expert Mark Phillips to achieve detoxification, balance and a profound sense of well being.

At Legacy, we believe that a meaningful spiritual journey does not necessarily need to be an ascetic or spartan experience.

We cater for our sophisticated, cosmopolitan clientele who lead busy lives and crave a nurturing and comforting haven away from the noise. Which is why we hand pick our retreat locations for their gorgeous surroundings, absolute serenity and well-appointed luxurious rooms, and we also make sure that our clients are well-fed with nutritious gourmet meals based on organic and seasonal produce.

It is my wish for every one of our clients to leave Legacy Retreat feeling truly alive and inspired to continue their journey of self-discovery. I believe the most valuable investment you can make is in your own living legacy – a meaningful life for yourself, your loved ones and the world.
