November 5 – 20, 2025
with Monica Voss, in association with Merit Travel
Discover three distinct areas of India in this exciting retreat adventure! The group will gather in Amritsar and spend the first 3 nights (November 5-8) acclimatizing to India and visiting the Golden Temple, spiritual centre of the Sikh religion. On November 8, we’ll transfer to the remote and beautiful Basunti Lodge (www.basunti.com) for 9 nights (November 8-17) for the yoga retreat portion of this trip. We conclude our adventure with 3 nights (November 17-20) in the Himalayan mountain towns of Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj, home to HH the Dalai Lama, after which you may stay on, travel elsewhere, return to Amritsar, Delhi or home.
