The Himalayas have been attracting mystical seekers for thousands of years, because there is no other place in the world where you are as close to heaven as here.
On the one hand, of course, this applies to the very profane geographical altitude, but above all in a figurative sense: nowhere else in the world are there so many holy places created by nature and man, mountains, springs and rivers, lakes, caves, temples and monasteries that are revered as sacred.
There is hardly a place in the magnificent mountain world that does not have a history worthy of veneration.
Our mystical tours are aimed at people who are looking for an awakening experience, who want to experience a change and enrich the yearningly unfulfilled part of the soul and discover it as a source of happiness and serenity for the hectic pace of everyday life. Let us take you on a mystical tour to sacred places in the Himalayas, which touch anyone who visits them with an open heart with their magic – according to the legends.
Have you already delved deeper into the Buddhist culture of the Himalayas? Our expert pilgrimage guides will lead you to meditate at places of power, in caves or monasteries and other sacred pilgrimage sites and build bridges to qualified masters from whom you can receive teachings. The animistic religions of the mountain peoples, who used to roam as hunters and gatherers, have always regarded extraordinary natural spectacles such as waterfalls, hot springs, particularly old trees and the like as sacred.
In addition to sacred places and sites in nature, the countless sacred buildings should of course also be mentioned: all the temples, monasteries and Buddhist shrines (chortens) that, unlike in Tibet, have escaped destruction in the Indian and Nepalese Himalayas. Many of them are centuries, if not millennia old. All of these places exude an unforgettable magic that leaves no one untouched and directs the gaze inwards – away from the stress and cool practicality of everyday Western life.
The Hindus practically always built their temples in places where something extraordinary, magical or mystical once happened. Each temple tells its own story – how one of the many Hindu gods performed or continues to perform a special miracle at this place. Buddhist shrines usually refer to historical figures who meditated in special places, often caves. It is believed that these places were particularly blessed by their presence and therefore have healing powers. Among many others, the yogi Milarepa and guru Padmasambhava deserve special mention here. The latter left footprints and handprints in rocks in the eastern Himalayas, which are still revered today.
We can integrate meetings with shamans, Buddhist lamas or Hindu priests into your tour, arrange health resorts/retreats in India, include an ashram visit in Rishikehs or elsewhere in India. Tour in the company of an expert – this can be an academic or a lama – and have an audience with rimpocheys or tulkus, the teachers of Tibetan Buddhism, or with a guru, the teacher of Vedic teachings. We take you to places of power and pilgrimage sites and tell you the stories of the places. True to our philosophy, we want to build bridges and open doors. Walk through them!
