Spiritual Excursions & Pilgrimages
For 45 years, the Himalayan Institute has led numerous pilgrimages on traditional pilgrimage routes throughout India. This has enabled spiritual seekers to experience the beauty and power of some of the most spiritually charged shrines of the Himalayan Tradition.
Our service excursions give participants the opportunity to see, in person, how the Himalayan Institute’s humanitarian projects are impacting real lives. As the reach of our humanitarian projects expands, so too does the number of seekers who are making the journey to Mexico and Cameroon to put yoga into action.
