Journey to Kerala ~ Southern India

Thursday February 22 to Thursday March 1, 2018

Join us for a 7 night journey to Southern India! We will commence our journey in Delhi, followed by an overnight visit to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal at sunrise! Next we fly south!

Kerala feels like a world away from the hussle and bussle of Northern India.

Known as “God’s Own Country,” experience its famous backwaters, elegant houseboats, ayurvedic treatments and delicately spiced, taste-bud-tingling cuisine! We will visit Cochin (also known as Kochi), a city that entices with a rich cultural legacy and has been a key trading post throughout the centuries, and Alleppey, the scenic town popularly known for its outstanding backwaters and lush natural beauty! Our last 2 days will be spent in the town of Cherthala, where we will slow it down and decompress at a beautiful Ayurveda resort, with the option to indulge in various ayurvedic treatments, relax by the pool, or enjoy nearby villages and temples ~ We hope you can join us!

Entry VISA

A valid passport and tourist visa are required for entry to India.

The India visa process can often be a confusing and lengthy process. We strongly suggest using a visa-processing service such as Travel Visa Pro, which can assist you in getting your visa in a fraction of the time for a nominal fee. If you prefer to do it on your own, please email us at contact@satyaretreats.com and we can provide you with further guidance.

Suggested Visa Processing service:
Travel Visa Pro: www.travelvisapro.com
Phone: 1-866-378-1722

During the visa process, you may be asked if you are traveling on a package tour. Your response to this question should be “No.” Although we are traveling together in India, your travel to India is not a package tour because your arrival in and departure from India are independent of Satya Retreats and not with the group. You may also have your own travel plans before or after the trip, and as such, your travel to India should be considered independent.

During the visa process they will ask for your address while in India. Provide them this address:

Holiday Inn Mayur Vihar New Delhi
13A Mayur Vihar
District Centre
New Delhi, 110091
Tel: 91 11 41105555

Immunizations

Immunizations:

There are no required vaccinations for travel to India at this time. However, the CDC does offer recommendations/suggestions.

Please refer to the CDC website and contact your Doctor to decide which immunizations you feel you will need.
