The Restorative 15 Day Itinerary For Your Spiritual Journey Through India

There are so, so many reasons to travel, but uplifting your own spirits and using travel as a way to connect with yourself can offer a fulfilling journey of spiritual awareness and healing. The travel gurus behind Wanderwell create travel itineraries around the world as a way to reset, rejuvenate and get people to reconnect with the joy within them.

We recently got wind of one of the spiritual journeys they offer to India, which includes wanders through Delhi, Jaipur and the Himalayas. With a focus on mental wellbeing, exploring the local architecture and culture, and a good chunk of time dedicated to personal growth, the itinerary looks like a recipe for a life-changing couple of weeks.
