Additional Notes from our Travel Agent :
Please note it is a hectic tour so we would not encourage tourists with any physical challenges. Given the high altitude in Ladakh, we strongly recommend that you undertake a regular fitness routine at least two months before the beginning of the tour. It is a very extensive itinerary but we have managed to give some rest time whenever there is an early morning wake-up. To ensure ease of travel we will be sending one of our experienced tour escorts with your group. Airfares are fluctuating all the time and we need to get the cheapest fares and therefore we recommend that we have names at the earliest.
NB: From June 30 to July 4, the travel agent is also arranging an extension tour of Pondicherry along with Nilima Bhat, to visit the Sri Aurobindo Ashram & Auroville as well as nearby sites such as the shore temples at Mahabalipuram. Please let us know your interest in joining this, while registering for the main tour above and we will send you costings as per the group size.
The travel agent can also arrange for 04 Days extension tours for Golden Triangle (Delhi-Taj Mahal/Agra-Jaipur) and 04 days extension tour to Amritsar & Dharamshala. Visit www.nettoursindia.com/spiritual-tours-in-india.html to know more.
