Itinerary

Day 1 : Dehradun to Natin Village
    • 05:30 – Group meet up at Dehradun
    • 06:00 – Start driving from Dehradun to Natin Village
    • Altitude: 7400 ft
    • Distance: 180 kms, 5/6 hours

Namaste, and welcome to Rishikesh. This is the first day of your trek. Early in the morning, you will meet our representatives in Rishikesh and we will embark on our special yoga spirit trek journey in the laps of the Himalayas. 

 

Yoga and trekking both heal your body and offer both internal and external strength. Yogic practices help reenergize and revitalize your body, mind, and spirit and when you practice yoga and meditation in the pristine aura of the Himalayas, the benefits are multiplied manifold. Trekking is also a practice that naturally makes you more resilient and when you pair it with yoga it impacts the experience even more.

 

After the entire group gathers in Rishikesh, you will be transferred to Natin Village. Natin is situated at an altitude of 7400 ft and is about 180 km away from Rishikesh. It takes 5 - 6 hrs to drive to Natin. Natin is a small settlement in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand and often serves as the base camp for the Dayara Bugyal trek. Nestled in greenery, Natin offers you captivating views of Mt. Shrikanth, Mt. Jaunli, and the mystical Gangotri Range.

 

The road to Natin is quite scenic as well with the Bhagirathi River flowing beside you along the way. On reaching Natin, we will settle down in the guest house.

Start your day with Yogic Cleansing Practice, Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. Yoga is a divine journey of self-realization and personal growth and when you are practicing in the midst of nature, it brings you closer to your own wisdom and source of happiness. Nature is one of the biggest medicines and a refreshing trek paired with spiritual practices in the Himalayan mountains is a life-changing experience. The pristine and untouched sacredness of the Himalayas for relaxing, rejuvenating, and de-stressing your mind and body.

After morning yoga practices, you will have a Sattvic breakfast and then later a Sattvic lunch. Yoga practitioners believe that a Sattvic diet has a great influence on our consciousness and such a diet brings about purity, harmony, health, and well-being.  Such a diet includes seasonal fruits and vegetables, whole grains, pulses, sprouts, dried nuts, etc. and the food is cooked and eaten with love and gratitude.

 

In the evening you will have a rest and reflection session. The self-reflection sessions help you identify and let go of negative beliefs and thoughts. In yoga practices, self-reflection is an integral part that leads to the visceral awareness of your inner divinity.

Have some refreshments in the evening and later you will practice Gentle Yoga/ Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation that provides effortless relaxation. We will then have our dinner around 7:30 after Satsang or such similar cultural activity or a bonfire night, we will retire in your beds.

Yogic practitioners believe that mountains reveal to us the ancient rhythms of Earth and thus hiking and trekking have a profound impact on your body, mind, and spirit. The scenic beauty of the mountains and encountering the culture deepens our connection to the earth and enriches the sense of community. Stable, solid, and unmoving mountains show us the true meaning of life and the Himalayas are a haven for nourishing the mind, body, and soul.

The trail to the top is moderately easy and from the top, you will get amazing views of the Bandarpunch peak and the Kala Nag. From the top, you will also get a bird’s eye view of Dodital. The joyful experiences of trekking through the stunning landscape are both transformational and liberating. This holistic journey amidst the inspiring Himalayas is focused on mindfulness to bring about physical, mental, and spiritual harmony.

If by a rare consequence TTH calls off/cancels a trek:

At TTH, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event that we do call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen circumstances or natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that prevents us from carrying out a trek in a safe manner, unforeseeable circumstances like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that prevents a safe trekking experience, TTH will issue a voucher summing up to the same amount as your trek fee. The voucher can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.

 

Note

  • If the entirety of your group fails to reach or cross the pickup point, or abandons the trek, due to any unforeseen circumstances like snowfall or heavy rainfall, landslide, and such, in such a case the voucher will not be issued. You can, however, choose to repeat the trek with us.

 

  • The voucher is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around-time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. Vouchers are issued only when the whole trek is cancelled or called off on behalf of TTH.

 

 

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

As we mention always, weather conditions at high altitudes are extremely unpredictable and can change at any time of any day. Also, situations like natural calamities or political unrest, pandemics and lockdowns, etc are out of our control and if an event cannot run under any such circumstances that we do not directly have control over then we will try to give you an alternative trek, which means your trek will be shifted from one trek to another, which will be safer and more favourable.

In these cases, a voucher is issued to mitigate the difference in cost between the two treks. You can redeem the voucher at any time over a period of one year from the date of issue. A refund fee or refund of the difference is not applicable.

 

 

Note:

  • Change of trek batch is dependent on the availability of seats in the batch
  • In case of transferring a trek to a friend, he/she should satisfy all the mandatory requirements put forward by TTH
  • TTH holds the right to change/cancel the policies, without prior notice
  • Cash refund is applicable only in case of bookings made without using any promotional offer code or vouchers

  • The voucher is valid for Trek booked directly with Trek The Himalayas in India
  • To avail the voucher please use your register phone number or e-mail id
