Beatles Ashram is situated inside Rajaji Tiger Reserve , but this side of the reserve is not accessible to animals hence making it safe for humans to wander about. One has to buy a ticket of Rs 150 to enter Beatles ashram.

A short but steep trek with dome shaped kuttiyans ( cottages ) leads you to  the ashram.

The trek leaves you at the doorstep of a road that has countless dome shaped structures sprawling in all directions. The steps to the 2nd floor of these cottages are ruined beyond words, so you must be careful while walking up.

There never is. Its all a vicious circle

The walk back to the main road where you can hail a cab. A long but interesting walk enshrouded with greenery on either sides. A trip to this ashram can get quite tiring due to the initial steep walk and long road to the highway so carry lots of water as there is no store /dispenser anywhere in the vicinity.

If you're upto treading down a path of a legendary bands experience in India and for experiencing a vibe that cannot be found in many places on earth, go to the Beatles Ashram . You will find the vibe your searching for.
