Singing bowls are renowned for their healing and relaxing qualities and were invented by ancient Tibetan and Nepali Buddhist monks for physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenation. Singing bowls are also called Himalayan bowls, a source of positive energy in the form of sound vibrations. When the rims of these bowls are struck, it produces a long, reverberating sound wave that soothes the senses. The singing tunes are a series of sound waves produced by them. Deep, subtle and powerful these sound waves are believed to penetrate the mind of the listener leaving him relaxed and tranquil.

BEST TIME TO VISIT:
The climate of Nepal varies greatly from one place to another in accordance with geographical features. In the north, you will find that summers are cool and winters freezing, while in south the summers are tropical and winters mild. In short, Nepal has five major seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter. A general rule of thumb is that an average temperature drop of 6°C occurs for every 1,000m increase in altitude. In mountainous regions and hills and valleys, summers are temperate while winter temperatures can drop to below zero. The valley of Kathmandu has a pleasant climate with average summer temperatures of 19°C – 35°C and average winter temperatures of 2°C – 12°C. Around 80% of the precipitation is received during the monsoon (June-September). In December and January, when winter is at its coldest, there is still a bright sun and brilliant views. As with most of the trekking areas in Nepal, the best time to visit is during the spring and autumn months.
