OVERVIEW

To travel to India, the land of yoga's origins, is to enter a country that is in constant transformation, yet somehow timeless. It is a land with a temple or shrine around every corner, where the sacred is revered in every river and mountain, where the search for enlightenment is in the air. For many yoga students in the West, a trip to India goes beyond sightseeing. It can be a sacred journey and a deepening of one's yoga practice, as well as pure adventure. 

Equipped with this knowledge, the expert tour designers at Expedition2india designed this 5 Star Tour.
