During the evening, you can particpate in a prayer ceremony by the river. Ayuverdic specialists are on hand to offer massages and reiki (energy healing). Midway through the tour you'll travel to Rishikesh where you can roam the foothills of the Himalayas and receive a rejuvenating massage and steam-bath treatment. There will also be time for water sports. Nine days of of ayurvedic meals and accommodation at ashrams and hotels costs about $1,770.
