Ever since the Beatles rocked up at the ashram of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the late 1960s, Rishikesh has become a magnet for spiritual seekers from around the planet. Today, it styles itself as the “yoga capital of the world”, with serious justification, as there are masses of ashrams and all kinds of yoga and meditation classes.

Most of this action is north of the main town of Rishikesh, Ram Jhula and Luxman Jhula, where the cold fast-flowing Ganges or Ganga, surrounded by forested hills and peaceful riverbanks, is conducive to meditation. In the evening, the cold wind blows strongly down the valley, temple bells are ringing as sadhus (spiritual men), pilgrims and tourists prepare for the nightly traditional Ganga Aarti ceremony.

You will have breakfast at Ibis Hotel and group lunch at Flavors Restaurant on the second day. Group dinner at Rooftop Café along the Ganga (if weather allows) will be done on the third day, while group dinner at A Tavola Conte will be on the fifth day. You will also enjoy a group breakfast at Mokhti’s Café, lunch at Pyramid Café in Lakshman Jhula, and closing group dinner at Flavors Café in Rajman Jhula on the eight day. On the last day, you will say goodbye to other participants while having group breakfast.
