About this trip

 This is a first! We’re surely going to end  up on national news for this stunt. We are hosting 12 fortunate,  burned-out, ready-for-a-road-trip people on a caravan from  the ashram to Bikaner! You, a partner, and a camel with covered carriage  will walk veeeeerrrry slowly through the desert. Decompress  with Papu the camel, write that book that’s been sitting on the back  burner for the last decade, or get to know your wife again. Papu has a  saddle and a carriage so the seating is up to you – up top or down  below. We’ll be camping and cooking along the way, “rough”. So you’ll  also learn some recipes from our new ashram cook book Yogi Recipe Book,  and participating in morning yoga classes, and evening satsang.

Along  the way there will be some surprises – wildlife, celebration, stories,  music and dance. 

Once we arrive in Bikaner, we will tour the famous  Junagarh Fort, and participate in all the festivities associated with  Bikaner camel festival. We will all stay together comfortably in  pre-arranged housing with pure veg meals. You can then begin the next  leg of your journey from the train station, or return to the ashram by  vehicle to extend your stay.
