Take a tour of India's mystical mountain regions from Delhi to Amritsar
Take a tour of India and be introduced to the Mountains and Mystics of this incredible country. This is a journey of the body and spirit as we travel through the foothills of the world's highest mountains. These mystical lands look and feel very different from the rest of India - from the food and clothes to the crisp, clean mountain air and spiritual sway of the inhabitants. Discover the complex diversity of India and be enchanted by a land balanced between physical and spiritual worlds.
What's included in this trip
Mountains & Mystics SummaryAdd to Shortlist
It's big, it's bold, it's busy - and there is nowhere in the world quite like it. Delhi's sights and sounds are sure to engage and intrigue.
Sitting high up in the north-west Himalayas, Shimla is a charming town with houses built into the mountain, lovely heritage buildings and strong cultural traditions.
With a mountain backdrop and picturesque landscapes, Mandi is a beguilling town with a large number of temples of spiritual importance.
Dharamsala, a beautiful and spiritual city set high in the verdant Kangra Valley, is home to many Tibetan exiles, with the Dalai Lama being the most famous.
With the Golden Temple (Harmandir Sahib) shining like a jewel in its centre, Amritsar is a fascinating city sacred to both Sikhs and Hindus.
Aptly named the 'Yoga Capital of the World', Rishikesh is a great place to relax and unwind.
Delhi has been an important city in India for well over 2000 years, and its cultural richness and diversity radiates from every corner.

Mountains & Mystics, March 2014
Incredible experience! Intrepid really put together a great itinerary for this small part of such an amazing country. Kuldeep really made the trip! Loved his stories about personal experiences and knowledge on culture and traditions that only a local would know! Found Kuldeep very approachable and his English is great, as were his lessons in Hindi as he tried to help and encourage me to learn. Social and communication skills are important in a group leader and Kuldeep excelled in both!
