“Heartfulness journey, senses stimulated beyond imagination”

Mountain Saran Tours
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

A journey full of experiences that kept all our senses stimulated in a way beyond imagination. All experiences were like a caress to the spirit and soul, leading to heartful moments.

The dedication of our guide, Saran, was essential for an overwhealming visit to India. He truly is a kind and beautiful soul, who made everything sacred and mindful. His knowledge and devotion towards Arunachala, is "heartstanding". It was inspiring to hear him telling stories and the history of the places we visit.
My mala is always on my neck... thank you beautiful soul. I really wish life to be kind to you. Hope some day see you all again.

Thank Joana M

Saran is the most dedicated guide I have ever met​, always professional in his actions and his sense of responsibility towards our group. ​He was always ready to help us and had a friendly attitude at ​all times.​.
Thanks to his culture, love and dedication, we spent two weeks getting to know Pondicherry, Auroville and Tiruvannamalai...
With him, we navigated through streets and markets, ​bought beautiful souvenirs​ and were warmly welcomed in restaurants where we tasted all sorts of dishes.
With him, we visited temples and climbed sacred mountains.
With him, we traveled, we laughed, we got emotional, we sang, we prayed.
Saran shared with us his knowledge as well as his love and devotion towards sacred spaces and ​remarkable entities of the spiritual world.
Our stay in the Arunandri Retreat Center was another highlight of our trip. It was a lovely place, surrounded by nature and overlooking the Arun​a​chala mountain. We were welcomed, treated and fed with such love and kindness that we felt at home.
Thank you, Saran, for everything you passed on to us, as a guide and as a person!
Arunachala will always​ have a special place in my heart.

Great experience!
Since the beginning of our trip we had always been inspired by Saran stories about the Arunachala mountain and all the places we’ve been visited!
Saran with his natural love and passion just guide us to a magical and spiritual journey around all the flavours, colors, and Indian culture!
The Arunandri Retreat Center is just the perfect place to stay and enjoy of all the natural beauty. We were very well received and the food was very good ... all homemade!
Waking up having the mountain as our primary view is special and led us to another dimension of ourselves! At night we can admire the beautiful sky full of stars!
Thank you so much Saran! Hope to see you again!
Om Nama Shivaya!

It's hard to put in words this trip.
We just came back from Auroville, Pondicherry and Tiruvannamalai with Saran as our guide. Besides the tours to the places, with his open heart, he lead us on the way to explore more the Self and in Arunachala everything gains so much power.
Arunachala is with me, marked with love from everyone who made our stay possible. Arunandri Retreat Centre was an incredible stay, with the mountain always in our sight, and now forever is our hearts.
Thank you for everyting Saran!
