India is a fascinating country with it’s rich ancient history and interesting cultures. I am organising a journey that is filled with spiritual vitality and adventure. We will start in Delhi, 1 night in Agra to see the Taj Mahal at full moon, 3 nights in Jaipur (to complete the Golden Circle) then 5 nights in Rishikesh (the world capital for Yoga) with our final leg visiting Dharamshala (home of the Dalai Lama) for 3 nights before flying into Delhi for the final night of the journey.

We will all make our own way to Delhi to arrive on Sunday 13th however should you wish to arrive in Delhi a few days early to explore the Capital of India (populaton 23 million) I will be there and we can link up with others that choose to come early as well so we can do some joint sightseeing but cost would be own care.

On the Monday we head to Agra by private bus to see the Red Forte and visit one of the ‘7 Wonders of the World’ the beautiful Taj Mahal and then enjoy a rooftop dinner to watch the full moon rise above the Taj.

Then we continue on the private bus and head for the Pink City called Jaipur. There we will visit a number of Unesco sites including the Amber Fort, Jantar Mantar (observatory) plus others as well as having free time to explore this beautiful city.

From there we will fly to Rishikesh which is nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is a melting point of religion, spirituality, yoga, meditation, healing and self discovery. This beautiful little town, also known as the ‘Place of Sagas’ with the fast flowing Ganges running through it, surrounded by forrested hills, fresh mountain air and laid back vibe, makes it a wonderful and intersting place to visit. Ever since the Beatles rocked up at the Ashram of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the late 60’s, Rishikesh has been a magnet for spiritual seekers. Today it styles itself as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’. Here we will immerse ourselves in the spiritual vitality while experiencing its chaotic hustle. 

From Rishikesh we will fly to Dharamshala which is surrounded by Cedar forrests on the edge of the Himalayas (elevation 1457m).This is the home of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in exile. The Thekchen Choling Temple complex is the spiritual center for Tibetan buddism.

‘Once a year, go someplace you have never seen before’, this inspiringly simple quote which stirs the feeling of wanderlust within us was spoken by his Holiness the Dalai Lama who is recognised as a Holy Persona by the entire world. This hillside city with a high population of tibetans has earned the nick name of ‘Little Lhasa’ with its beautiful buddist monastries, luscious trees, mesmerising mountains and gushing waters, the sheer majesty of it all will simply take your breath away.

I would love for you to join me on this adventure so to obtain full details of what is included and all the planned activities please contact me to receive the full flier.
