Itineraries

Day 1

Arrive in Delhi Namaste!

On the first day of your trip to India, Parallels and Meridians welcomes you to Delhi. Our representative will receive you at the airport and take you to your hotel. The day is kept at leisure for you after the exertions of travel. Overnight at the Imperial Hotel.

Day 2

Delhi Glimpse of the old and the new

Today we will be touring Old and New Delhi – poles apart in ambience and appearance, yet both retaining an immense sense of history. Old Delhi has a captivating cornucopia of ancient monuments, narrow streets and vibrant markets, which you can experience for yourself as you cycle by rickshaw to the imposing Red Fort – a powerful reminder of the former glories of the legendary Mughal dynasty. After this, we remove ourselves from the chaos of the old city with a foray to Raj Ghat, which was the site of Mahatma Gandhi’s cremation in 1948 and has a memorial dedicated to him. We follow this by returning to Old Delhi with a visit to the Jama Masjid, the largest mosque in India and finally the frantic Chandni Chowk – famous for spices, inexpensive jewellery, fabrics, electronics and several popular eating joints. Despite the crowded lanes and constant, yet friendly beckoning from shopkeepers, it is a captivating place.

Day 3

Delhi – Dehradun Ticket to serenity

After breakfast you will be transferred to the airport for a flight to Dehradun. Once we arrive in Dehradun, you will be taken to Ananda resort (35kms/1hr). Ananda is an award-winning luxury destination spa situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Himalayan foothills, and a perfect getaway for all those looking for some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. Overnight at the resort.

Day 4

Ananda Union of mind, body and soul

Today we will have an introductory session with one of the experts at Ananda, who will brief us about the wellness program which has been created for you in the upcoming days. This program aims at eradicating toxins from the body to reinstate its vitality, through conventional Panchakarma therapy. It works through a combination of various Ayurvedic treatments, diet and Yoga, tailored to your body to improve its immunity.
