15 Days Himalayan Pilgrimage Yoga Retreat in India

  • Delhi - Rishikesh - Hanuman Chaati - Yanumotri - Gangotri - Kedarnath - Badrinath

Char Dham Yoga Retreat in India

The Himalayas have always been the "true north" of the spirit life in India. Of all the holy sites, none are more important that the "Char Dham", literally the 4 special places. All Indians dream of visiting these and it is said of you visit all 4 you will find samadhi or nirvana. These special places are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. We'll sleep at simple but comfortable inns or in tents at base camps high in the mountain valleys. The stars will blow your mind, spread like brilliant diamonds across the sky; bright enough to read by. Truly this trip is one you will never forget and which will fill your dreams for years to come. Once seen, the Himalayas will call you back!

Trekking is involved in visiting 3 of the 4 sites as we walk 6 to 20 km from the nearest road to reach the site. All of the trekking is above 10,000 feet which requires a very good level of physical and aerobic fitness, but does not require technical climbing skills. This is a physically challenging trip. We will follow the ancient trails surrounded by towering, snow-covered mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and wild animals (none that will eat us).

The vast majority of the food we will eat in India is vegetarian. Meat is relatively more difficult to get and we cannot always be sure of the quality of the meat. Rishikesh is entirely vegetarian, and there are no restaurants serving meat in the entire town. The vegetarian cuisine we will get is delicious, varied, and interesting. We will make sure that what you are presented with is clean, well prepared and safe for you to eat. So far no one who has traveled with us has gotten: travelers belly.
