Spiritual India Retreat (Dec. 22, 2016 - Jan. 5, 2017)

Encouraged by the overwhelming response to my 8th Spiritual India Trip (Nov. 2 - 16, 2016), I have decided to organize one more India Trip this year (Dec. 22, 2016 - Jan. 5, 2017).  I invite you to join this trip of a lifetime to explore the beauty of India's 5000 years old rich culture, heritage, beautiful palaces and delicious cuisines.

While travelling to most popular tourist destinations of North India (Rishikesh / Haridwar, Delhi, Agra and Jaipur), we will not only delve into India's history of massive forts, the opulence and splendor of Rajasthan's palaces, but also have the opportunity to visit some of the most serene and spiritually enriched places in the majestic Himalayas. We will enjoy a lot of fun activities, including visits to colorful bazaars and elephant ride etc.

As you know, India is a mystical land that has a living ancient culture in its many holy places and Ashram's.  At one of these Ashram's, we will attend a spiritual retreat under the guidance of  famous Yoga Masters.

Following is just a brief itinerary of this trip, including visit to Taj Mahal in Agra, Akshar Dham etc. in Delhi, Amber Palace in Jaipur, Ashram-s and places of faith in Rishikesh.  This itinerary is subject to changes.
