It is with great pleasure that Catherine Parker Art Tours, along with travel guides + friend TripathiJi, welcome you to this new Art program. Travelling first to the state of Rajasthan, to the beautiful small and humble town of Nawalgarh, followed by Jaipur the ‘Pink City’ to celebrate the Sufi Music Festival. From here we will travel to the state of Uttarakhand, where will be based in the yoga capital of the world – Rishikesh. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas on the river Ganges – (Ganga Ma is the correct name meaning Mother Ganga), Rishikesh has a long history of spiritual practice in yoga and meditation – optional for those who wish to participate. A lovely way to unwind and complete our program

Mr Ajay Tripathi
Mr Tripathi is one of my oldest, most wisest and loyal Indian friends. A guardian angel to me since 2005 when I first arrived in India. Of the 23 journeys to India he has only missed 1 pick up from the airport! And only because he was away at the time. A dedicated spiritual being to higher causes, an advocate for womens’ rights, the education of young girls in his native village to ensure they can survive, is truly remarkable. A follower of Gandhi, a joyful and ever optimistic being, I am truly delighted to have him accompany us. He will personally collect you all from the airport so that you arrive safely and with celebration for the 2 weeks ahead…
