Hello travelling gals, It's time to get together and talk about India... meet travel companions and have a fun breakfast too!
7 of us are confirmed and have our flights. We are going to India, in February 2017 for a LOCAL LIVING EXPERIENCE: JAISALMER INDIA
Share with friends, family and others ... I have found GREAT direct flights Vancouver to Delhi and return. These DIRECT flights only happen twice a week.
We leave Victoria on Feb[masked] later in the day, we arrive in Delhi in the wee hours of Feb 20. We fly YYJ to YVR and then to Delhi - no other stops!! Flights are 14 hours so you do have opportunity to rest on the flight. There are only 16 spots available based on double occupancy (8 rooms in total) at the Jasmin Haveli in Jaisalmer and 7 beds are already taken ... 9 more can join. This is for the one week local living in the desert experience, private tour at $1000 USD.( $500 USD non refundable deposit to hold your space. Pay the remainder when we arrive).
Accommodations in clean locally owned haveli (hotel). Www.JasminHome.com Reserve with me to avoid disappointment. Stay with tranquility and comfort at Jasmin Home. Your boutique home, away from home. Breakfast is included at the hotel.
INCLUDED: You won't find a tour like this anywhere- this is hand selected by me! Includes spiritual ceremony for women empowerment and world peace, a dinner in desert with local women, an exchange of knowledge and views with a woman volunteer, and a visit to a local cooperative to see the locally made khadi (homespun, hand woven cloth) and other local textile art. Train to Jaisalmer for one week local living experience included and transport back to Delhi after end of our week.
ADDITIONAL costs: Gratuities. Meals (other than breakfast) will be paid for by you as only you know what you want to eat:). $10-20 a day will be plenty. Any expenses of a personal nature will be additional.
EXTENDED TRIP options: If you want to stay on longer in India for more tours, I am happy to coordinate so you can take advantage of this local living in the desert experience plus more of India in the Rajasthan region, or south Kerala …. (or wherever you want to go!).
Here is an excellent option - 15 day GAdventures tour from Delhi on 27 Feb to 13 March arriving in Kathmandu ... travel by charter bus, train, local bus, van, rickshaw and a river boat on the Ganges.
