Start in Bangalore and end in Kochi, the India: Mind, Body, Spirit trip is a guided spiritual or religious tour that takes 9 days. You will travel through Thrissur, Bangalore and Kochi in India. India: Mind, Body, Spirit is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Engage your mind, body and spirit on this 9-day tour through southern India. Home of Ayurveda, the ancient system of medicine that takes a holistic approach to physical and mental health, and traditional yoga, the practice of connecting bodily postures, mindful breathing, and meditation to achieve greater health and happiness. India has drawn international visitors in search of meaning for decades. We’ve designed this journey for travellers who wish to explore this side of the nation and themselves in the immersive Intrepid style. That means you’ll mingle with local pilgrims at Sri Chamundeswari Temple and dabble in Ayurveda at a jungle guesthouse in the Western Ghats, not seal yourself off in a pricey retreat. Discover the spiritual roots of the physical practice of yoga and meditation, and find a deeper understanding of your body and mind in the process.

“I had an amazing time. Highlights were Kruger national park and the Delta and the nighlty camp fires under the stars. It was a well planned trip mainly due to our tour leader Thabang, Lizzie our cook and Vincent our driver. There were long drives as per the itinerary but it was the only way to see the beautiful southern africa in a timely manner. Thank you for a great trip!”
