This trekking and yoga excursion is designed to challenge your mind and body and awaken your spirit while you immerse yourself in one of the most spiritually charged and majestic places on earth- Gangotri National Park.
Come and See for Yourself...
"Thousands of years of the spiritually charged vibrations that these mountains emit differentiates them from all the other peaks in the world. Regardless what attitude or intention you bring to these mountains, you come back with an experience of yourself and a relationship with higher reality that you have never imagined before. What that experience is and how it’s received is totally different from person to person and probably cannot be put into words even by those who experience it. Simply put, come and see for yourself."
—Pandit Rajmani Tigunait
"Of all the places I have visited in my life, I have found none more fascinating than Gangotri."
—Swami Rama of the Himalayas, Living With Himalayan Masters
