  • Description

    Hardly 135 kms from the commercial capital of Mumbai stands a quaint little town, almost can be termed as a village, called Igatpuri. Located in the middle of lofty green hills and cascading waterfalls, this picturesque town does not have anything much more than its natural beauty. Igatpuri falls on the Mumbai Nashik road. The phrase of walking on clouds becomes a fact when the clouds just pass through you as if a dense fog. <br />The crisp weather and the picturesque views make this place a favourite hunt of the young groups for a weekend getaway from Mumbai. Today Igatpuri has attained a spiritual dimension to it. It has a huge Vippaschana centre here. Vippaschana is a form of meditation where a person is not supposed to talk either. It is the most serious way of self concentration and emancipation of your energies. One can attend the programme of stipulated days with a coaching for the same to go along with. Truly a tough exercise when you have to meditate and remain silent with so many people around. But after this exercise a person definitely resumes life with a new outlook and a different perspective towards life.
