India Travel Tour Highlights
For many, India is the ultimate wellness destination. The region is grounded in spirituality, and its tangible energy seems to rub off on every visitor, remaining long after their return home. Our holistic journey through northern India allows you to fully absorb this vitality, the immensity of India’s captivating history, stunning landscape and, of course, her spiritual roots. Your trip begins in Delhi, where your days will be spent exploring the old and new sections of the city; Gurudwara, one of Delhi’s most popular pilgrimage sites; and meeting with a Past Life Regression Specialist, should you wish. From Delhi, fly to Varanasi, where you will meet with a renowned professor to learn more about Hinduism and the ancient city of Varanasi followed by a private Aarti experience on the Ganges River. This evening you will also have the opportunity to meet with a famous astrologer. The next day enjoy a sunrise boat ride on the Ganges, which allows an intimate look at how vital this river is to pilgrims and locals alike. Spend the remainder of the day on a tour through Varanasi and Sarnath, the site of Buddha’s first teachings where you will learn about Buddhism and meditation from local monks. Continue to Agra and Sikandra, where you will enjoy afternoon flexible touring. The next morning begin your day with a yoga and meditation session followed by a detoxifying spa treatment overlooking the humbling Taj Mahal. This evening explore the exquisite Taj Mahal, with time to see it at sunset by decorated horse carriage. Continue on to the Amanbagh visiting the abandoned temples of Fatehpur Sikri en route. Once you’re settled in, enjoy a sunset “cow dust” tour. The next day enjoy yoga at the abandoned ruins of Bhangarh followed by an afternoon at your leisure. The next day, transfer by road to Jaipur. Enjoy the balance of your day with a tour of this wonderful city. From there, fly to Udaipur for a sunset boat ride on Lake Pichola and touring of what is widely considered India’s most romantic city, where the Lake Palace rises like a lotus out of the lake. The highlight of your journey will be three nights at the Ananda, nestled in the Himalayas. This all-inclusive retreat is an absolute haven for wellness enthusiasts; for many, Ananda is the spiritual pathway to the union of body, mind and soul.
