Before You Travel

1GENERAL TIPS

General Tips


  • Pack light! Rucksack & Backpack 60L is recommended. No suitcases pleases.
  • You will definitely need a good quality shoe with ankle support for this trip as there's lots of walks and hikes. This is very important !! I recommend SALOMON brand.
  • Keep in mind to bring some warm clothing for Northern Trip. For Southern Trips although it can be sunny in the daytime with warm temperatures around 25-30 degrees Celsius, the temperature can drop to around 10-18 degrees Celsius at night and morning time.
  • Do bring earplugs to allow you to get a good night’s sleep.
  • Bring a flashlight.
  • Bring you ATM visa/mastercards. Ensure you have sufficient funds.
  • Shoes are not to be worn inside temples or Ashrams. Generally shoes are not worn inside most buildings. Footwear is usually left outside at the entrance of the building.
  • Buy an over-the-neck passport bag or money-belt to carry money and passport.
  • Don't look into the eyes of monkeys and don't feed them as they may take your whole bag away!
  • Never walk alone at night wherever you are in India.
1VISA

Visa


A valid visa and passport is required to enter India. You will need to contact the Embassy (or High Commission) of India in your own country to obtain your visa before your departure dates. Visa on Arrival (E-Visa) is available for passport holders of a limited number of countries. Note that this visa is only valid for 1 year and is made online on http://indianvisaonline.gov.in portal. Be aware that a visa is valid from the date it is generated at the Embassy and not from the date of entry.
2HEALTH INSURANCE

Health Insurance


It is compulsory to have your health insurance covered throughout your whole trip in India. Insurance can be easily made available at various insurance company. We recommend Mauritius Union those who are coming from Mauritius. Please ensure to keep all relevant documentation throughout your whole travelling.
3FOOD & WATER

Food & Water


Do not drink any water from taps unless you know it has been filtered with a very good water filter as one can become very ill from drinking contaminated water. You can buy sealed bottled water in the supermarkets or general stores; ensure to check the seal on the bottle cap. India is a place of amazing delicacies and taste ! There are plenty of good restaurants with a variety of foods for both Western oriented minds, as well for those who like to eat local Indian food. Most HOLY places are vegetarian so don’t expect to find any meat, fish or egg. Always ask for food without HOT & SPICY.
1CURRENCY

Currency


The country currency is Indian Rupees. There are ATM cash machines at the airport and throughout India where one can withdraw cash using a credit card or a bankcard. Major currencies such as US dollars, British pounds and Euros are easy to change. Remember, you must present your passport whenever you change currency or travellers cheques. You can check the exchange rate for your currency on a web site such as www.xe.com.
2VACCINATIONS

Vaccinations


It is recommended to arrange for vaccinations or homeopathic vaccinations before your travel. Check with your doctor or health clinic which vaccinations are required for visiting India. Please note: If you are travelling from South America you are expected to show proof of vaccination for Yellow Fever.
3DRESS CODE

Dress Code


Culturally in India it is essential to dress modestly, especially in an Ashram and when visiting a Holy Cities. Guidelines: Shoulders, chest, buttocks and knees should be covered. Clothing should be loose and not transparent except in GOA ;)
