Trekking und Meditation in Helambhu (Yolmo Land), Lodge 11 Tage
Helambhu oder Yolmo befindet sich nördlich von Katmandu nahe an der Grenze zu Tibet. In der Vergangenheit war es zeitweilig ein Teil Süd-Tibets und ist deshalb Teil des tibetischen Kulturkreises. Es ist berühmt für seine landschaftliche Schönheit und ist ein unglaublich gesegneter Ort. Auch als Kerung bekannt, ist es zwar ein Juwel des buddhistischen Dharma, aber eine recht unbekanntes Ziel auf der touristischen Landkarte Nepals und deshalb dem Tourismus seit langer Zeit wenig ausgesetzt geblieben. Yolmo ist eines der vom tibetischen Heiligen Rigdzin Godem (1337-1408) entdeckten sieben ‚Verborgenen Täler’ (tib. bayül), in denen die Menschen glücklich leben und die neben Anderem der buddhistischen Meditation besonders förderlich sind (neben Khumbu, Rongshar, Lapchi, Dolpo, Nubri und Sikkim).  Aus diesem Grund repräsentiert es das große historische, kulturelle und  spirituelle Erbe der alten Nyingma-pa (besonders deren Byangter-Linie) und der Kagyu-pa Schulen des tibetischen Buddhismus. Es war in Yolmo, wo in der Mitte des 7. Jahrhunderts der Guru Padmasambhava viele Jahre meditierte und diese liebliche Bergregion auf seinem Weg nach Tibet segnete. Tibets großer Yogi Milarepa meditierte hier im 10. Jahrhundert in einer Höhle ebenfalls über mehrere Jahre. Der Legende nach war er in der Lage, nach diesem Meditationsretreat nach Zentraltibet zurückzufliegen.
Wir haben diese Tour für ‚Trekking und Meditation’ ausgewählt, weil es hier viele unglaublich alte Klöster und kulturelle Kraft-Plätze gibt, die für Pilger höchst segensreich sind. Auch weil es eines der sieben ‚Verborgenen Täler’ ist, wird es Ihrer Meditation besonders zuträglich sein.
