MARCH 12 Travel to Haridwar and continue on to Rishikesh, the spiritual home of yoga. Our visit includes an evening Aarti ceremony, a tradition of sound, flame and color, on the banks of the Ganges River where the sadhus [holy men] gather.


MARCH 13 Visit 2 ashrams: Parmarth Niketan Ashram, the largest in Rishikesh known for its ornate gardens, and the overgrown ruins of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ashram, known as the place where The Beatles wrote the White Album.

MARCH 17 Our first stop takes us to the Golden Temple, aglow in the morning light, and to Jallianwala Bagh, the national memorial in Amritsar commemorating the British massacre of 1919. As the sun sets, we will witness the pageantry of the lowering-of-the-flags ceremony along the Wagha Border between India and Pakistan.


MARCH 18 Early morning departure for a scenic drive to Dharamshala, home to the 14th Dalai Lama in exile. View the snow-capped peaks of the Dhauladhar mountains known for their spectacular beauty. Our visit includes an afternoon tour of the heart of Tibetan Buddhism.
