Welcome to Temples of Nirvana
The Himalayas are the highest and most spectacular mountain range in the world. They are home to eight of the ten highest mountains which are either in, or run along the border of Nepal. And in and amongst this spectacular mountain region of Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet are many Temples, Monasteries, Stupas, Prayer flags and other many symbols of Tibetan Buddhism. Nepal is the birthplace of the Buddha himself and for the last 2500 years the people of this region have walked in his footsteps and created institutions to help teach his way. Its a place where not only are mountains physically climbed but a place where people commit themselves with every breath to conquering the Mountains of the mind. Tibetan Buddhism runs through the veins of the Himalayas. The two are one of the same.

Our Tours and Treks are designed to give you something more than just tourist sightseeing or a walk in the mountains.
