Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition, a way of life. It is a way to connect with nature and live in harmony with nature and all of creation. One could view shamanism as the universal spiritual wisdom inherent to all indigenous tribes. As all ancient spiritual practices are rooted in nature, shamanism is the method by which we as human beings can strengthen that natural connection.

Shamanism is deeply practiced in Nepal in perfect harmony with the two major religions, Hindusim and Budhism

Nepal has diverse nature and culture with over hundred ethnic groups and most of them having their own Shaman in their community.

Shamans are known as Dhami, Jhankri, Bijuwa, Fedangma,Garau and with many other names .Shamans hold great power and authority and are respected as a guardian of the community in Nepal. Shamans devote their life to the community and it is their responsibility to ensure the well being of the family and community. A Shaman heals both the living and the dead.

Pilgrimage to Holy lake Gosaikunda 4360m.

Located at an altitude of 4360m,the lake is considered as one of the most visited pilgrimage sites in Nepal. The lake surrounded by mountains is accompanied by nine other lakes.

The lake remains frozen for six months in winter and the ice from the lake melts down to form Trishuli River. During the festival of Janai Purnima, in the month of August every year, a large number of devotees and shamans come to take holy bath in the river. There is a large rock in the middle of the lake which is believed to be the remains of Shiva shrine. According to the legend, the lake is believed to have formed from digging the land by Lord Shiva’s Trishul (three pointed sword) after he drank poison from the Samundra Manthan and wanted cold water to quench the burning in his throat. Dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Gauri.

The views on the trail are splendid and the sights of the mountains and the numerous small and big lakes are captivating.
