About This Tour

India is an explosion of colors, music, traditional garb, aromatic spices, bustling markets, and the beautiful sounds of reverential chants. As the seventh largest country in the world and the second most-populous, India home to many different cultures and religions. Incorporating the festivals of these various cultures into our tours provides the most memorable experiences for our guests.

One such celebration is the Kumbh Mela, a Hindu pilgrimage in which devotees - young and old, fit and frail - gather to purge their sins by taking a ritual dip in a sacred river. It takes place only once every six years, when Jupiter, the Sun and Moon are particularly aligned! Among the revelers are Naga Sadhus (who never wear any clothes), Urdhwavahurs (who deny all physical pleasures), the silent Parivajakas, and the Shirshasins (who stand for 24 hours non-stop to meditate). This festival is so unique that UNESCO has listed it as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. In addition to the Kumbh Mela, this tour will take you to many of the spiritual attractions of northern India, including Bodhgaya, where the Buddha attained enlightenment, the sacred city of Varanasi, and the divine Taj Mahal.

Toto Tours has organized countless tours to different regions in India, and when you travel with us you can be sure that you will experience the best of Indian heritage and culture. We now invite you to experience a spiritual adventure in India like no other!
