COVID-19 & Responsible Travel:
All of our tours have been suspended for now. We will be resuming their operation in 2022. If there is a tour you wish to join in the future, please select "Add me to the interest list for this tour" on the tour's Overview page. This will ensure that you're in the queue for it and you won't miss the opportunity when tours resume. When the tours resume, we have made several changes to our business which you can review at “Covid-19 Updates.” The most important change is that we are asking all workshop participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, ensuring that all participants, suppliers and hosts remain safe and healthy during the tour or workshop. Looking forward to meeting you soon in the post-Covid-19 era. Until then, stay Safe, stay Healthy, stay Positive!

In the pre-dawn dusk, the pilgrims arrive. After crossing the narrow bridge that spans the Salinadi River, they enter the inner sanctum at the temple complex. Although the moon is full, the mist from the river hides its cool brilliance. About 200 women devotees gather around fires in the inner sanctum, absorbing its warmth before taking their first holy bath in the cold Himalayan stream.
