Day 1 : Arrive Delhi 

Today we arrive into the pulsating metropolis of Delhi.

Today we take a short drive to visit Matho Monastery, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery built around 500 years ago which belongs to the Sakya order. Is the day of self-contemplation, the day we practice the art of mindfulness. It will take you on a journey through the history of Buddhas and bodhisattvas to the monks of today. Wake up early to attend the Puja of the monks in the main prayer hall of the monastery. We will experience the vibrant characteristics of Buddhist monks, who sing to raise the collective consciousness. They sing the ancient scriptures in deep, resonant tones. Today, the day is dedicated to your journey of inner search. We will stay in the monastery and its close surroundings. Try to meditate and connect with the calmness and wisdom of Buddha. This is the perfect opportunity to ask yourself questions that you could never have asked yourself in your daily life. Or simply live the experience of being here today close to the Buddhist dharma. 


We will be able to exchange thoughts with the monk which will allow us to reach a deeper understanding of life and explore other Buddhist practices. In the old chapel opposite Buddha Sakyamuni, you will be introduced to the life of the Buddha and Buddhist philosophy.

Day 5: Drive to Alchi (Approx 2 hours)  

Today we drive down the Indus Valley. We cross the Indus River and we will also pass the confluence with Zanskar. Enroute, we stop in the very fertile village of Saspol and take a walk to the caves, which are in a rock face above the village. One of the greatest tantriks in Tibetan Buddhism, Guru Padmasambhava, meditated here 1,400 years ago. The main cave is decorated with beautiful paintings, which are probably similar in age to those in Alchi. It's amazing that this sacred and important place is so rarely visited, most people don't even know about it.


We then drive to Alchi monastery, a marvel of mandala art, which is on the other side of the Indus. The monastery complex of Alchi is not situated majestically on a mountain peak like most monasteries in Ladakh, but rather inconspicuously in the village between trees and fields. The monastery with its exquisite paintings that are up to 1000 years old is one of the most valuable in terms of art history in the entire Himalayas. In the afternoon, we will discover the treasures of Alchi Monastery, with its splendid frescoes and sculptures, created by artists from Kashmir in the 11th century.
