Yoga and Meditation Tour


A Yoga, Meditation and Wellness Package in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas.

Duration: 8N/9D

Itinerary: Delhi – Haridwar – Uttarkashi – Rishikesh – Haridwar – Delhi

Haridwar is an ancient city and important Hindu pilgrimage site in North India’s Uttarakhand state, where the River Ganges exits the Himalayan foothills. The largest of several sacred ghats (bathing steps), Har Ki Pauri hosts a nightly Ganga Aarti (river-worshipping ceremony) in which tiny flickering lamps are floated off the steps. Worshipers fill the city during major festivals including the annual Kanwar Mela.

The town of Uttarkashi is a tourist destination known for its stunning natural beauty, and is also called as Devbhumi, which can be literally translated to ‘Land of the Gods’. Uttarkashi is situated on the banks of river Bhagirathi at an altitude of 1158 m above sea level.

Rishikesh is a city in India’s northern state of Uttarakhand, in the Himalayan foothills beside the Ganges River. The river is considered holy, and the city is renowned as a center for studying yoga and meditation. Temples and ashrams (centers for spiritual studies) line the eastern bank around Swarg Ashram, a traffic-free, alcohol-free and vegetarian enclave upstream from Rishikesh town.
