2025 Journey to India

Main Tour: March 16-25, 2025

Taj Mahal Segment: March 25-27, 2025

The 2025 Journey to India will focus on three locations: Kerala, Varanasi, and Jaipur. We start in Kerala, South India, with the Sacred Sap Retreat to transition and rejuvenate via Ayurveda. Then, the Post Retreat Tour to Varanasi and Jaipur for the adventure travel of a lifetime. The Taj Mahal segment is optional for those interested in seeing the famous monument to love.
Sevanti Adventures offers life-changing tours through the epicenters of sacred India. We also avoid overly commercialized, touristy spiritual centers. Sevanti Adventures bases its itinerary on wellness, cultural, and spiritual immersion experiences in locations that deepen our understanding of life and inspire personal growth. Let’s travel together.

In India, yoga is said to be the science of the human experience. Nourish your life experience!
Down south, dive deep into ecstatic morning yoga sessions and Ayurveda rejuvenation treatments overlooking the Arabian Sea. Explore the jungle Backwaters. Make a healing offering at a Kali Temple. Crack a coconut as an offering to Lord Ganesh. In Varanasi, receive a Sadhu Blessing from dreadlocked sadhus (Yogi ascetics). Tour the Ganges River by rowboat in sight of temples, bathing ghats, and cremation ghats. Then, on to Jaipur to take in the beauty of the Rajasthani desert. Ride an elephant at the Amber Fort. Make monkey friends at the Monkey Temple. Finally, join the optional Taj Mahal Segment and walk through the high altar of love, the Taj Mahal itself.

10 hours of Ayurvedic massage

You read that right. Ten hours of Ayurvedic massage and treatments like Shirodhara, Abhyanga, and Marma Chikitsa. That’s why we call the Kerala segment the Sacred Sap Retreat. Every journey should start in a calm, relaxed manner. Only then can we drop in and truly experience the beauty of India, and the beauty waiting within ourselves.
“You held the space while I cracked my heart over the spire of India, golden yolk, pure honey, forever changed, I feel the sway and surrender of the fisherman’s line, India is decisive yet not cut-throat, illuminating my inner peace by the way of love. There are no words, but here I try to find a meager few. Thank you! For a trip that takes one deeper down into their inner cave, where tangible life and heart merge, dance and celebrate.”

— Cole (2019 India Retreat)
