International Yoga FestivalRishikesh, India

Follow the path of the pilgrims to Rishikesh, the ‘City of the Divine,' and take part in the International Yoga Festival. You'll meet soulful gurus and long-haired hippies by the thousands as limber up and join in the festivities, which take place annually around the beginning of March.

Learn from the spiritual masters of India and join the throng to perform 108 Sun Salutations en masse at sunrise. Okay, so that means a 4am wake-up, but we know that you can drag yourself out of bed for this special occasion!


Weekly passes start at US$400, and for an additional US$200 you can also get a room on-site.
