Places we’re visiting
This itinerary includes 7+ yoga and meditation sessions in the morning and wisdom and kirtan sessions in the evening where travel allows. The entire trip is a spiritual experience, not just a sight-seeing tour. The places we’re travelling to this year are:
The historical capital of India for over 1000 years, Delhi is a cultural mix of the east and west. We’ll be doing a day trip of famous landmarks on one of the days and also visiting amazing temples on other days. There will also be a free day to do your own shopping or travels if you like.
Known as the yoga capital of the world, Rishikesh is set at the foothills of the Himalayas with the beautiful Ganges in it’s crystal blue form flowing through the centre of town. Known for it’s spiritual heritage and traditional Ganges offerings, this place will transport you to a different world.
Jim Corbett National Park:
Known for Tigers and Asiatic Elephants, this is a must go for adventurers. We’ll be going on 2 safaris – one in the morning and the other in the evening in two separate areas of the park.
With over 5,000 temples in this town smaller than Watford, Vrindavan’s rich spiritual heritage goes back thousands of years. With it’s buzzing bazaars and simple lifestyle, this place will give you an experience into a spiritual lifestyle, not to mention it’s the birth place of Krishna – the dancing God.
Visit one of the most famous monuments of India and experience it’s breath-taking and awe inspiring presence.
Along the way, we’ll also take part in morning yoga sessions and evening meditation and kirtan sessions when possible. We want to make this trip a spiritual experience that you’ll remember!
