My return visit for Panchakarma at Mountain Top Clinic 2020
– Jan 26 to Feb 15

Conclusion | Starting at the end

I am beginning this blog at the end, in order that I can begin with my conclusion, that Mountain Top Clinic is a truly wonderful place for health and rejuvenation.

I have arrived home to Sydney Australia, at the beginning of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. What a shock it was to leave the isolation of Mountain Top Clinic after not reading hardly any news, and then arriving at Singapore International Airport with everyone wearing face masks and being zapped with temperature detectors. Little did I know, that this was only the beginning of things to come. This has made me feel even more grateful of the time that I spent cleansing and strengthening my immunity during my second three week Panchakarma with Dr Sundara and his wonderful therapists and staff. Mountain Top Clinic is a very special place, it’s not a posh health spa, but a true authentic place of healing and rejuvenation. I think it is testament to the quality of the treatment given here, that many of the other guests during my stay this time at MTC, are also return visitors from around the world.

Three week diary of Panchakarma at Mountain Top Clinic

My return to Mountain Top Clinic 2020

Well here I am back at Mountain Top Clinic (MTC) in the wonderful Nilgiris, Tamil Nadu, Southern India to once again cleanse and get my system back in order. This blog is an update to my previous blog three years ago, with the addition of my experience of the actual Panchakarma treatment added in this time around. Unfortunately, after my visit to Mountain Top Clinic last time, my online Blog about the Panchakarma part of my treatment days was lost due to my Internet Webhost corrupting and losing my work. So, after many requests, I can now finally complete the important story of the experience of my Panchakarma treatment.

It is so nice to be back at Mountain Top Clinic, high up in the mountains surrounded by tea plantations and local tribal villages, in the clean, clear mountain air. The team at MTC seem to have done quite a bit of work here since my last visit in 2017. The yoga studio has been upgraded and now has windows with a wonderful view of the mountains and valley below. The gardens have been landscaped further and the best news is that MTC now have two beautiful cows – Lakshmi and Parvati to supply the milk for the homemade ghee and also the cutest little Pug puppy called Browny.  I am happy to find that I am also in the same room as I was in last time I stayed here, making me feel very at home.

About this Blog Diary 

The following blog is my diary which mainly gives details just about my treatments each day. This will give anyone interested in undergoing a Panchakarma treatment a general idea on how a course of Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment might go. Of course this will be different at various Ayurvedic treatment centres and also for each individual. This is, therefore, a general guideline of how a three week Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatment program at Mountain Top Clinic would be. Three weeks is the minimum time recommended for a course of Panchakarma therapy.

The daily schedule is much the same for every guest at Mountain Top Clinic as per the timetable on the image below:
