As expected the Dragons experience took us under the covers of Newari culture in a way no tourist could achieve. The combination of expert guides, immersive living, homestay, mindful engagement, and intensive 'slow' travel created a once in a lifetime journey in a relatively short time. I'm so glad we undertook this adventure.Mark Bauhaus Ashrams & Artisans, Nepal August 2017
