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.
