Detailed Itinerary - 12 Day North India Yoga

 

Day 1: Depart from origin. We can include international flights on request.




Day 2: Arrive at Delhi (most flights arrive either in the evening or at night). Our services begin here. You are greeted at the airport by our Travel Facilitator and then ushered to a chauffeur driven vehicle. You are then driven to your hotel where you are assisted with your check in. The next day’s plans are briefly reviewed and the travel facilitator hands over travel documents such as your air tickets and hotel vouchers to you.




Day 3: Delhi. Attend the Yoga session at your hotel in the morning. For small group retreats, your instructor will conduct your session.
Mid-morning - Start your exploration of India with a guided city tour of Old Delhi. Drive, walk and ride through the ancient cities crowded streets and alleys; explore ancient and colorful bazaars. This excursion includes visits to the Jama Masjid (1650 AD), the largest mosque in India, and the amazing Red Fort (1639-48). The walled city inside the Red Fort was the seat of the Moghul Empire for more than 250 years and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After the Fort you will experience a rickshaw ride in the alleys of the ancient bazaar at Chandni Chowk. You also pay a brief visit to the memorial and cremation site of Mahatma Gandhi (Raj Ghat).
Afternoon – enjoy a city tour of New Delhi. This excursion begins with a drive past Safdarjang’s Tomb (1753 AD) while driving to the awe-inspiring Qutab Minar (1193 A.D.). This 239 ft tall medieval tower is a symbol of victory and a beautiful example of Persian architecture from that period. There is a winding stairway inside the tower that goes up all the way to the balcony at the very top of the tower – unfortunately they are no longer accessible for visitors. The Qutab Minar and its Monuments are also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Within the Qutab complex, amidst the ruins of the Quwat-ul-Islam Mosque, stands one of the legendary Ashoka Pillars. This large iron pillar has withstood the ravages of Delhi’s weather (and recent pollution) and has not rusted in over 1500 years. After the Qutab complex you will be driven to visit the magnificent tomb of the Moghul Emperor Humayun. Delhi has such an abundance of amazing monuments that this Tomb Complex (1562 A.D.) does not quite get the acclaim that it deserves. It is Delhi’s third UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its amazing architecture and the elaborate gardens  will captivate you.
From the tomb you will proceed on a drive through New Delhi. Time permitting, this drive will include photo opportunities at some of the following attractions - the exterior of the massive and awe-inspiring Rashtrapati Bhawan (known as Viceroy’s House during the British era), other impressive Victorian era civic buildings, Delhi’s landmark structure India Gate, a gold domed Sikh Temple (Bangla Sahib Gurudwara), & the Birla Temple. The last part of this excursion is a drive through Connaught Place, which is New Delhi’s downtown.




Day 4: Delhi – Agra. Board the early morning (6:15 am) Express train - two hour journey - to Agra. Half day tour of Agra – The tour includes a visit to Itmad -Ud –Daulah’s tomb, built by the Mughal Emperor Jehangir’s queen as a memorial to her father. It has beautiful ornamentation with ‘Pietra Dura’ inlay and lattice marble screens. The mausoleum rests in a walled garden with a view of the river Yamuna. Constructed in the year 1628, most historians believe that its design provided the inspiration for the Taj Mahal. You then visit the original red sandstone fort in North India, the Agra Fort. It was built in 1565 by Emperor Akbar, the greatest Mughal ruler of India. Its maze of courtyards, marble mosque, and private chambers all serve as reminders of the grandeur of the Mughal Empire.
After the tour, you are then driven to your hotel where you are assisted with your check in, if possible (normal check in is at 2 pm).
Late morning -Attend the Yoga session at your hotel. For small group retreats, your instructor will conduct your session.
There is a break for lunch.
Afternoon - Visit one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the incomparable Taj Mahal. The world’s greatest monument dedicated to love; the Taj Mahal was built by Emperor Shah Jahan in 1653 AD as a memorial to his beloved queen, Mumtaz Mahal. This spectacular white marble mausoleum was built by about 22,000 skilled craftsmen and it took 22 years to complete. When you experience the Taj Mahal with an Easy Tours of India Guides and have them provide unique insights into various details of the Taj Mahal, some of their obvious passion for this masterpiece may rub off on you! Explore the amazing monument and its surroundings till it is time to admire the sun’s rays setting on the Taj Mahal’s façade.




Day 5: Agra – Jaipur. You have three options this morning – (1) you can sleep in, (2) a sunrise visit to Mehtab Bagh (no charge), which is a 500 year old Mughal garden located across from the Taj Mahal on the other side of the Yamuna River, (3) Visit the Taj Mahal (no charge at opulent level, entry fee surcharge at Luxury Level) again for a sunrise exploration. If this is a group retreat, the group collectively selects the second or third option – a democratic vote is taken at the Taj Mahal on the previous evening. Those who want to sleep-in have no vote! If you select to one of the excursions, you will return to your hotel to freshen up after the visit.
Depending on when you return from your excursion, you may be able to attend the Yoga session at your hotel in the morning. For small group retreats, your instructor will conduct your session.
You are assisted
with your checkout from your hotel and then you are driven to Fatehpur Sikri. Enjoy a guided exploration of this beautiful uninhabited city. It was built primarily out of red sandstone by Emperor Akbar between 1570 and 1585. The Emperor moved his capital from Agra to this city and then abandoned it, returning back to Agra. Visit the tallest gateway in the world, the towering Bulund Darwaza (The Gate of Victory). In the northern part of the courtyard is the superb white marble tomb of Shaik Salim Chishti, built in 1570.
Arrive at Jaipur in the late afternoon/evening and check in to your hotel.
Jaipur is famous for its carpets, jewelry, & handicrafts.




Day 6: Jaipur. Attend the Yoga session at your hotel in the morning. For small group retreats, your instructor will conduct your session.
After breakfast, start your exploration of Jaipur with an excursion to Amber Fort & Palace, located 12 kilometers from the center of the City. Just like the Emperor’s of a few centuries ago, enjoy the ascent up to the ramparts of the fort on top of a colorfully caparisoned elephant (if you so desire, jeeps are available instead of the elephants). The massive Fort complex was originally built by Raja Mansingh and is one of India’s finest examples of Rajput architecture. Explore the chambers and hallways of the Palace which are famous for their exquisite designs and handcrafted embellishments. Return to the valley beneath the Fort on your elephant or jeep and proceed back to the Pink City.
There is a break for lunch.
Late afternoon - Proceed for a brief city tour of the walled city of Jaipur, including the magnificent City Palace. Visit the unique Jantar Mantar magnificent stone observatory built by Raja Jai Singh in 1728. View the ‘Hawa Mahal’ (Palace of the Wind), the intriguing facade built in 1799 to allow the ladies of the court to view the city and bazaar from the windows without being seen themselves. Continue the tour to visit the City Palace, the former royal residence (a part of it is still occupied by the Royal family and is not accessible to the public), built in a blend of Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles. This immense complex also houses a number of museums that offer a large and impressive collection of miniature paintings, costumes, and armory.
