I’m nervous to travel to Nepal alone, is there anything I should know?

Being nervous is normal. You totally got this. Elise, the retreat’s co-founder, first traveled alone to Nepal when she was 18 and was completely fine. In fact, she loved traveling alone. She decided to look at the whole journey as an adventure, and everything turned out great and was exciting, just the way she decided it would be. You will be with others and be taken care of from the time you are picked up at the airport til the time you are dropped off at the airport. You are in great hands. Trust the journey, your own discernment, and your own capabilities.

How do I mentally prepare?

Let go of your expectations. Understand you are showing up to learn, experience a new culture and community, and have a ton of fun. Let the rest unfold. Trust in what we have planned for you. Be flexible and patient (as a lot of things in Nepal tend to take more time than in the western world). It makes it more of an adventure.

Do I need to get vaccinations?

We recommend you see a doctor in your area, tell them about your trip to Nepal and ask them what they think would be best for you.

What airport will I fly into?

Tribhuvan International Airport (KTM), in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal.

What do I need to know about getting a Nepali visa?

You don’t need to get a Nepali visa before you enter the country. You are able to get a visa upon arrival, in the airport. You can read here about how to get a visa once you land.

Can I stay a shorter or longer amount of time at Duidaile?

If you want to come but aren’t able to stay the full 15 days, you are more than welcome to leave early. However, you will be responsible for getting back to Kathmandu, by yourself.

If you want to arrive before the retreat or stay after the retreat as a guest, please apply here.

What are the accommodations?

Our lifestyle at Duidaile Farm is minimalistic and natural. Expect to step outside of the world you’ve been living in and step into a very simple way of living. You will be living in communal rooms with new friends, and you will be using an outhouse.
