A luxury tour to Jaipur & Kathmandu

Wanna see stupas in Kathmandu and fortresses in Rajasthan? A swanky trip filled with great food and beautiful sights, staying in 4-5 star hotels. Super easy pace, curb-to-curb service. Just get to Delhi, we take care of the rest. The trip is a blend of fun and art with likely visits to woodblock fabric-printing workshops, gem-cutting labs, ceramic factories, and artist studios, as well as temples, museums, palaces, and fortresses. 

This is our first trip since the Pandemic and it's our first with such an intimate group of only 8 people.

Tibetan Thangka Painting Retreat

All art forms in India spring from the spirit of devotion, searching for the many ways to meet with the Divine, which gave rise to many imagery, stories, symbols, songs and names. In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, this art form of picturing awaken beings is a way of meditation and of finding ones own true nature. The Thangka retreat in Dharamshala was a beautiful three week experience of how art is created in Tibet.
