This beautiful corner of India has the snowcapped Dhauladhar mountains as a spectacular backdrop – with stunning views from the garden above Mcleodganj.
Relax in complete tranquility as there are no other hotels, shops or roads nearby to disturb the peace.

This retreat is a perfect opportunity to deepen your Ashtanga Yoga practice,

You will find time to journal- set goals, let go stuff In nature.
Every day you will go for hikes to different beautiful spots and on the last two days do an intense but beautiful and gorgeous trek to Triund. From the top of the mountain you can see the snow-line. 
All your meals are included and it will always be healthy and yummy food curated by Deepika. The produce is all locally grown and sourced and is high on Prana.

Getting There:

Flight :

The nearest airport is Gaggal Airport, Dharamsala. There are daily direct flights from Delhi - Air India & Spice Jet. We recommend Spice Jet for its convenient timing. Taxis will be organised by us for you (payment direct to cab driver) to take you directly from Gaggal Airport to the hotel.

Train :

There are more than ten trains running daily from Delhi to Pathankot and Chakki Bank, which is a smaller station near Pathankot.

Once you reach Pathankot, there are three options to get to Mcleod Ganj: Taxi (easiest and quickest); bus (convenient but usually crowded); and the Kangra Toy Train (slow but spectacular, and ticket available at Pathankot station and usually available). The Toy Train leaves Pathankot at 9:05am and reaches Kangra at 1:45pm.


There are many buses from Delhi to McLeod Ganj every day, or take a taxi. Most of the buses leave from Majnu ka Tilla (the Tibetan camp), and also from many other points in Delhi. Make sure the bus is going to all the way to McLeod Ganj, as some buses have a last stop at Dharamshala, from where McLeod Ganj is another half hour bus ride, or take an easily-available taxi.

Please note this retreat is not for beginners and you should have an Ashtanga Yoga Mysore Practice and also love fitness as its an active holiday retreat.

Namaste! We look forward to having you join us for this retreat.
