Where?

The North of India is one of the most beautiful, sacred and colorful parts of India. This tour will take us to the holiest city in India, Varanasi, to explore the ancient towns of Orchha and Khajuraho, get lost in Delhi, and have an Ashram experience in Rishikesh.

This land is a colourful melange of sacred temples, massive forts, stunning palaces, diverse cultures, delectable cuisines and warm people, set amidst a landscape as diverse as cities on the river, the hills of the Himalayas and the traffic in Delhi.

Rishikesh is commonly referred to as the ‘yoga capital of the world’ and rightly so. The destination is abuzz with visitors, who come here to learn yoga and meditation. Rishikesh has numerous ashrams, some of which are internationally recognised as centres of philosophical studies, yoga and other ancient Indian traditions of wellness.
 There are several legends associated with Rishikesh. It is said Rishikesh finds a mention in the ancient text Skanda Purana, and in the epic Ramayana. It is said Lord Rama, along with his brothers, came to Rishikesh to do penance after killing Ravana.

Rishikesh is also known for its connection with The Beatles. In February 1968, members of the legendary English rock band visited Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram (now popularly known as the Beatles Ashram) to learn transcendental meditation. The band composed nearly 48 songs during their time at the Maharishi’s ashram, many of which appear on the White Album (and a few from Abbey Road).
