India calls. The Himalayas beckon.


Let India inspire your writing.

Urban, touristy India can overwhelm you with stimulation. And the Himalayas can be calming and deeply spiritual. At our retreats we strive for balance. In our all-inclusive retreats, we meet you at the Delhi airport and take you on a day-trip to the Taj Mahal. Then we take you to a quiet getaway, the Himalayan Writing Retreat, a muse to writers from all over the world.

The Himalayan Writing Retreat, Satkhol Village. Eco Rooms at Dawn

On a clear day, you have an unparalleled 270 degree view of Himalayan peaks 5000 ft taller than Denali. In this serenity, you channel India and all its chaotic vibrancy into your writing. In the Himalayas, you continue to discover a sliver of India everyday but in a calm, rural setting with time on hand. Experienced mentors and like-minded writers nourish your writing, as does the popcorn on Kitschy Bollywood film night. Cultural outings and wilderness hikes enrich your experience. You can also mix in some yoga with your writing.

A visit to the Taj Mahal is part of the 10-day retreat itinerary.

We have two retreats coming up : The Fiction Writers Retreat this Fall, and the Memoir Writers Retreat next spring. To keep the experience rich and personal, we limit participation to ten in all our events. 


From your arrival at Delhi airport to your departure, our retreats include all transfers, food, sightseeing and stays (twin shared), Yoga and even Tips. . International flights are not included.
