While shamanism exists in different variations worldwide, it shares some common beliefs. These are: spirits exist (can be good or evil); they can communicate with the spirits and they can cure sickness caused by them; they can induce trance-like states to incite visionary ecstasy; and they can tell the future. In Nepal, shamanism is the traditional religion of many ethnic groups in the eastern and western hills. Hinduism and Buddhism have been greatly influenced by shamanistic traditions.Called jhankris, or dhamis, Nepali shamans wear a peacock feather headdress and carry a double-sided drum.They have been defined by some as magician-religious specialists, part herbalists, part priests whose technique is spiritual rather than biological and whose business is to determine the nature of the spirit, and then either to placate it or driveit from the ill person’s body. As healers, they examine animal entrails for signs, collect medicinal plants, perform sacrifices, exorcize demons, and chant magical incantations. Most jhañkris will prescribe medicinal herbs, about which they are very knowledgeable. As soothsayers, they go into trances and act as spokesmen of the gods while as spiritual sentries, they ward off evil spirits and angry ancestors through either greater strength or trickery. They also officiate during funerals, hand out amulets and promulgate myths.

In the late afternoon, canoe ride in the river.

Day06 :- CHITWAN

Breakfast at the lodge.

In the morning, visit the local Tharu village to learn more about their lifestyle, culture, religion, etc. Tharu are the oldest tribes in this region and have more than 100 years of history. It is also called people immune to malaria since they are only tribes that survive in this area when it was maltreated by malaria before it was eradicated in the 1960s.

Then, visit the elephant stable and we would have elephant briefing session. The naturalist would explain the specification of Asian elephants and its differences with African ones. We would also participate on feeding this beautiful creature.

Enhancement Activity: witness shamanism.

While shamanism exists in different variations worldwide, it shares some common beliefs. These are: spirits exist (can be good or evil); they can communicate with the spirits and they can cure sickness caused by them; they can induce trance-like states to incite visionary ecstasy; and they can tell the future. In Nepal, shamanism is the traditional religion of many ethnic groups in the eastern and western hills. Hinduism and Buddhism have been greatly influenced by shamanistic traditions.Called jhankris, or dhamis, Nepali shamans wear a peacock feather headdress and carry a double-sided drum.They have been defined by some as magician-religious specialists, part herbalists, part priests whose technique is spiritual rather than biological and whose business is to determine the nature of the spirit, and then either to placate it or driveit from the ill person’s body. As healers, they examine animal entrails for signs, collect medicinal plants, perform sacrifices, exorcize demons, and chant magical incantations. Most jhañkris will prescribe medicinal herbs, about which they are very knowledgeable. As soothsayers, they go into trances and act as spokesmen of the gods while as spiritual sentries, they ward off evil spirits and angry ancestors through either greater strength or trickery. They also officiate during funerals, hand out amulets and promulgate myths.

In the late afternoon, canoe ride in the river.

Start sailing in a traditional patela boat for about 45 minutes, which will take you on a silent trip down the Rapti River to see waterfowl, crocodiles, gharials and animals from the riverbanks.

This excursion ends up with a wonderful surprise activity! Canoe ride ends up in a bank of the river, where some small tables are chairs are ready with a small bar. The guests would enjoy the fantastic view of sunset from there, with a glass of wine/bottle of beer (from ourside), the moment is just wow!

Later, drive back to hotel.
