Please help. I am looking at doing 3-4 months travel in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka and also wanting to study Yoga for 3 months. I don't want to make any plans but am looking for some advice, especially about Yoga.
I am planning on doing a trip to India Nepal, and Sri Lanka starting around November. I prefer to go with the flow and not make too many plans but it would be good to hear from anyone whose done this before and has recommendations about travel routes, must see locations and how to time travel to get the best of the weather in the various regions.
Advice on costing would be really good too, I'm going to be on a tight budget but there seems to be a lot of conflicting information about how much money I would need per day.
Most of all I would love to hear from anyone who has studied Yoga in India. I want to spend 3 months in an Ashram learning Yoga. Ideally I would like for my time to lead to a qualification as a Yoga instructor. At this stage I've just started practicing Yoga. I've seen some ashrams on the internet that seem to be either a lot more expensive than I thought they would be or require 2 - 3 years of previous practice or only offer short courses that don't lead to a qualification. So if anyone has been to one or knows of a reputable one I would love to hear from you.
I'm 30 years old, Male, from New Zealand, pretty much up for most things and like to go with the flow. If their is an opportunity to do something different than the norm I'm in! I drink, occasionally smoke and talk to strangers. If anyone is interested in traveling together for a bit let me know.
Cheers and happy travels!
Hi WanderingKiwi, does not know much about Nepal and India. For Sri Lanka, it has incredible temples, safari tours, national parks, tea plantations and world renowned beaches, Sri Lanka really does have everything. Spend some time in the hustle of the capital Colombo, investigate the old fort city of Galle which has been rejuvenated following the tragedy of the tsunami, and climb into the heart of the Island in Kandy. This is why Sri Lanka is being described as the jewel of the Indian Ocean that is still being discovered. You can also check out their other regions such as Sigiriya in which it has a lot to offer to any visitors.
