Dharma Yatra 2018

This year's Yatra will start on the afternoon of Tuesday July 24, 2018, and end at midday on Friday August 3, 2018.

Please ensure you can commit for the whole 10 days. Participating in the Yatra means being present from start to finish.
There is no possibility to join the Yatra except at the start and we are unable to make arrangements for you to leave before the end of the Yatra.

In 2018, we will start near the village of Dieulefit about a 30 minute drive east of Montélimar.

Via the links on this page you will hopefully find all the information you need for joining the Yatra


There are some important changes to the 18th annual Yatra that we wanted to share:

Firstly, for environmental and compassionate reasons, we decided this year that the diet on the Yatra will be completely plant-based. To learn more about why we’ve made this decision, please read the 2018 changes page.

The second point concerns children – we have updated and added information on the guidelines about bringing children on the Yatra. Please read the updated guidelines even if you have brought children to the Yatra before.



If you still have a question do contact us. But please bear in mind that the Yatra is running thanks to the dedication of a small team of volunteers. To offer them the most support please read through all the pages of this site, including the FAQ page before you contact them with any questions.

We recommend reading though all the information listed below in order. To facilitate this there is an onward link at the bottom of each page.
