Rishikesh is known to be the capital of Yoga. Home of the Rishis (Saints). In no other place in the world you will find so many Ashrams (sacred centers of knowledge, wisdom, devotion & service) and opportunities to deepen your holistic Yoga practice. You will connect with the roots of Yoga by feeling the place, taking steps on the sacred soil and bathing in the holy river Ganga. This is an initation into the Yogic path as it is and always has been: A holistic science of life that is gracefully blessed by the art of the divine.
Jodhpur is set in the stark landscape of the Thar desert. It is called the “Blue City” because most of the houses are painted in Indigo blue color.

Pushkar is known as “the rose garden of Rajasthan” as the essence of the famous Pushkar rose is exported all over the world. Along with an interesting mythological history, a legacy of timeless architectural heritage makes Pushkar a fascinating city. According to legends, Lord Brahma, believed to be the creator of the universe, dropped a lotus to the ground leading to the immediate creation of a lake. He then decided to name the place after the flower, and thus the area got the name Pushkar. The city is home to the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the whole world. Hindus consider a journey to Pushkar to be the ultimate pilgrimage that must be undertaken to attain salvation. Pushkar is one of my favorite pilgrimage places in the world. Inspired by local art and crafts, daily prayer rounds around the lake and temple visits that will leave you touched deeply. A feeling that will remain within your heart.
Jaipur is known as the Pink City because, in 1876, the city was painted a terracotta pink color—traditionally a color of hospitality—to welcome Edward, Prince of Wales.

The Jal Mahal (Water Palace), located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake, is not only worth a visit, but worth to start dreaming only in fairytales. In Jaipur we will have the opportunity to shop fabrics and clothes, enjoy the buzzing markets and yummy variety of food.
