Options for additional nights after the Ashram.
Extend your trip by travelling onto Nashik for the Holi festival after the Ashram. Nashik is an ancient holy city, containing nearly 200 temples including one of the holiest in Hinduism, Sita Gumpha. Nashik is believed to be the home of Lord Rama and his wife during their exile and the sacred river Godavari flows through it so Nashik and its bathing ghats hold special religious and mythological importance, like the more famous Varanasi in Eastern India. Other places to visit around the city include the 17th century Pandava Caves. Famous also for its wine and great for shopping, Nashik is an especially colourful and lively city to visit at any time, but during the spring Holi festival, or ‘festival of colours’/ ‘festival of love’, there will be thousands more pilgrims than usual and the atmosphere will be extra special. Celebrations include spraying colour on each other, dancing, partying and eating festival delicacies.
1 additional night in Nashik costs £100 per person, including hotel, transfer from the Ashram and train to Mumbai airport on the last afternoon.
