Night 2 - So we have reached Jaipur! Let's rest in a palace, yes, a real palace. Check into one of the heritage hotels to live as the royals did and be energized for tomorrow. Jaipur's beauty and grandeur are not found in modern high-rises but in the intricacies of resplendent palaces, sprawling lush gardens and grand forts, which were built by the mightiest rulers of that time. A culinary odyssey that is centuries-old, arts that have prevailed against time and old bazaars and cine-structures that have aged gracefully, make Jaipur the gateway to the royal heritage of India.

You can also sign up for a hot air balloon ride that will take over picturesque vistas of Amber Fort, Jal Mahal, etc. It's good to hire a Government-certified tour guide to get the best of the rich history of the place.

Mathura Vrindavan

Day 6-7
Day 6: Visit Vrindavan : Experience spirituality like never before. Vrindavan is a historical city in the Mathura district of Uttar Pradesh, India. It is located in the Braj Bhoomi region and holds religious importance in Hinduism, as Krishna spent most of his childhood days in this city. Vrindavan has about 5,500 temples dedicated to the worship of Krishna and his divine consort Radha, the likes of which include Banke Bihari, ISKCON, Gopeshwar Mahadev, Shahji, and Govinddeo among others. We intend to stay in an Ashram! Vrindavan is not merely for sightseeing, rather, to experience bhakti--spiritual madness of devotion for one's beloved. This is an optional stop; during off seasons, we can skip this stop to add an extra day to Rishikesh for a relaxed experience.


Day 7-9
Day 7-9: We take a ride for inner peace to Rishikesh - The yoga capital of the world! Nestled in the Himalayan foothills, Rishikesh is one of the most sacred cities in northern India. Located in the state of Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is the hub of sages, yoga practitioners and pilgrims, who throng the ghats (stepped banks of a river) and temples. In recent times, it has also become a centre point of adventure sports, offering activities like white water rafting, bungee jumping, canoeing and others. Triveni Ghat: Situated at the confluence of three sacred rivers, the Ganga, the Yamuna and the Saraswati which according to Hindu mythology, washes away the sins of a person. Evenings are stunning, the 'Maha arti' being carried out at the ghat. A multitude of lamps floating in the river during the arti present a spectacular view, leaving one in awe of the time-honoured traditions. How about a dip in the holy river? Lakshman Jhula: About 2 km from Swarg Ashram lies the well-known Lakshman (Laxman) Jhula, a suspension bridge about 450 ft long. Rajaji National Park: Around 20 km from Rishikesh, situated along the Himalayan foothills, is the Rajaji National Park, spread over 820 kms. It comprises several zones and forest types like riverine forests, sal forests, broad leaved mixed forests. Among the many faunae one can spot here are leopards, deer, tigers and ghorals. The park is popular among birdwatchers as it is home to around 400 species of birds. Neer Garh Waterfall is a beautiful narrow stream of clear water cascading down a rocky terrain cutting through a dense green forest. The waterfall is two-tiered and has two bathing pools. Reaching the waterfall requires trekking for about a kilometre (a 20-minute hike that starts 2 km north of the Lakshman Jhula) through the forest and then hiking down a cliff. The trail is exciting with pictorial views at every turn. Reaching the waterfall and bathing in one of its soothing pools is worth the effort of the hike. About 1.2 km ahead, one will find a bigger waterfall that has a larger pool. Butterflies of different species can be spotted here. Kaudiyala: A centre for water sports, especially whitewater rafting, Kaudiyala is a scenic town, mere 40 km from Rishikesh. Ram Jhula: The bridge spans 750 ft and is a splendid work of engineering that connects the ashrams situated on both sides of the river. It offers a splendid bird's eye view of the mighty river making its way through gigantic mountains and dense forests. Ganga arti: Ganga arti is a ritual of worshipping River Ganga that is held on a grand scale in the city. Lots of people are in attendance during the arti which takes places every evening. Visitors can take part in the blissful ritual and soak in the spiritual vibes along with enjoying the view of a hundred lit diyas (earthen lamps) floating on the river. Parmarth Niketan Ashram is the most famous venue of Ganga arti. We intend to stay in a beautiful ashram (subject to availability). Meditate, yoga, peace, spirituality: Realise, I am one with the universe, and the universe is one with me! You can book a cab and easily return via Delhi, or continue your journey further. The experience of India reverberates in your heart forever!
