Spiritual getaway in the Himalayas

'

India is a destination full of real life experiences where its rich history is immortalized in its culture and heritage. The real essence of India can be found in its people and their culture and this trip is an opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of the Indian Himalayas.

You start with Amritsar, sacred place for the Sikhs, where the business of the vibrant city takes you through Independance history. Museum, memorial and border closing ceremony helps you have a better understanding of the struggle of the area and its sad faith during the partition. Back in the center, the Golden Temple and the narrow streets take you to a trip in the present time experiencing holy moments of spirituality and gastronomy.

When reaching Dharamsala, you enter another world. A world made of the highest mountains in the world and Bhuddism, the world of Tibet. The city welcomes the Dalai Lama in exil and a large community of bhuddists and you take that chance to lean more about this rich, complex and still on going history. A trip to spirituality through religion as well as nature.
