Take in the palpable devotion in Rishikesh
Stroll along the banks of the Ganges river in Rishikesh – the devotion is tangible and will leave you vibrating at a higher level.
This being my first trip out of the country, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Admittedly, I was winging it. I packed lightly and headed to the airport. And that was all the planning I had to do! The next 12 days were blissfully free of decision-making and travel logistics. I was able to devote all of my time and energy on soaking up the culture and experience of India.
The conveniences of booking travel with Inspired Exploration allowed me to just show up and be fully present on the adventure. The depth and diversity of each place we visited, whether it was the bustling city of Delhi or the small, mountainside villages in Shimla, energized me on all levels.
