Join us for this 16 days/15 nights adventure to northern India with visits to various ashrams in the beautiful foothills of the Himalayas visiting spiritual centres of India such as Rishikesh, Haridwar and the Aurobindo ashram in Madhuban. As well as this we will have some days in Delhi with visits to the Sivananda centres, local sights and markets, including a visit to the famous Bahai lotus temple. We will also have a two day trip to visit the famous Taj Mahal in Agra. We will be travelling by coach and train including an adventurous overnight train journey.
