Curiosity, openness and flexibility are basic prerequisites for a trip to India. In some cases, the transfers are slightly longer (max. 10 hours), good stamina is required here. The yoga classes are suitable for all levels. The trekking tour is moderate. On the second day, 1000 meters of altitude are climbed. sometimes it goes a bit steeper uphill with some stairs to climb. You could also stay at the camp that day. A good basic fitness level is required.

India is the country full of diversity and colours. The culture is multifaceted and invites you to marvel.

In the foreground of the trip is the authentic exploration of Indian culture, as well as your own yoga practice.

The yoga classes offered are suitable for all levels.

In addition to the fixed program, you always have the opportunity to explore the area independently and enjoy your free time.

As the Indians like to say “everything is possible”.

Itinerary

The weekly and daily routine will be quite varied.

Let’s start in Delhi. There is a lot to discover in this metropolis and with the help of a local guide we immerse ourselves in the middle of Indian city life.

We continue the trip through the most popular Indian means of travel – the train. This takes us from the capital Delhi to Rishikesh –  the “world yoga capital”.

There you can get to know the  everyday life of an Ashram, practice yoga, admire the sacred river Ganges, get to know Hindu ceremonies and drink a chai in between.

The second part of the journey continues up to the Himalayan mountain region of Daramshala or more precisely to the town  McLeodGanj.
McLeod Ganj is home to numerous Tibetan refugees and the Dalai Lama’s headquarters. The influences of Buddhist culture make this a quiet and peaceful place.

From there we start a three-day hike into the Himalayas. The destination is the beautifully situated Kareri Lake.
After that we continue with a three 3 days yoga retreat, before we visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar.

From there, a domestic flight will take us back to Delhi.
