Ayurvedic Tour of India

The south of India is exceptionally rich with its own distinct culture, architecture and art which may take ages to be fully understood. The tour is an attempt to introduce these distinct aspects in a way that they never seem enough. An attempt has also been made to involve the visitor in these aspects - to appreciate them deeply without ever going overboard. The natural diversity of the region has also been fully involved.
