FOLLOW ME ONLINE AS I SHARE SIGHTS & SOUNDS OF MY
ADVENTURE TO NEPAL
My name is Julianne O’Dwyer and I invite you to join me as I share my once-in-a-lifetime journey through the natural and cultural treasures of Nepal, a beautiful and spiritual country.
In 2017, 648 people climbed Nepal’s Mount Everest—a grueling climb to an altitude of 29,000 feet. The rest of the 940,000 travelers in Nepal enjoyed a more relaxed hiking experience found at lower altitudes.
There are more than 200 lakes in Nepal due to the runoff from glaciers in the high-altitude mountains, which makes the water a stunning, vivid green. I hope to head for the Gokyo Lakes (the world’s highest freshwater lake system) and Tilicho Lake, which is located on the Annapurna Circuit, one of the most popular treks in Nepal.
There are a wide variety of animals in Nepal which you can see on safari in national parks such as Chitwan including elephants, Bengali tigers, rhinos, crocodiles, monkeys and exotic birds.
Unlike in the US, where restaurants and cabins are concentrated in a few specific areas of our national parks, Nepalese teahouses are interspersed throughout the mountains, offering meals and sleeping accommodations to travelers needing a respite. So, you can stop whenever you see a teahouse, eat local food, and chat with other hikers and local villagers as you like. This means you do not need to bring a tent, sleeping bag, or cookware when trekking through this beautiful country.
The Nepalese culture is centered around spiritual practices: yoga, meditation, and Tibetan medicine. Tibet is the birthplace of the Dalai Lama, who fled to India when the Chinese invaded his homeland in 1959. This influence is apparent as the Nepalese follow Hinduism and Buddhism. Many people experience spiritual enlightenment and an improved sense of well-being as a results of engaging in spiritual practices while in Nepal.
Let us prepare you for a once in a lifetime experience.

An avid hiker & skier who moved to Virginia from Colorado, where she lived after graduating from Thunderbird School of Global Management, Julianne experienced a catastrophic crash of her health due to several autoimmune conditions and longstanding back/neck/shoulder issues due to car accidents and sports injuries. Through trial and error with various health care approaches and hundreds of supplements, Julianne learned how to heal taking a natural approach.
As a result of her triumphant return back to health, she left her international consulting and then her corporate life to help people, especially athletes, overcome their own health challenges. As a Health Coach at National Integrated Health Associates for several years, Julianne worked with clients to support their bodies with lifestyle changes, including nutrition, supplementation, hydration with alkaline water, cellular rebuilding with REDOX technology and detoxification techniques. Now, she works as an independent Health Coach out of her home in Reston, VA.
As a result, Julianne launched a health coaching program to help people take charge of their health, which can be found on healthylivingwithjulianne.com and trekkingwithjulianne.com, to participate in adventure travels to Nepal and eventually Kilimanjaro and Peru.
