What we do
We organize Walking Tours in the Himalayan foothills. Walking is the best way to see and enjoy nature. When you come up to the hills and are already exhausted by your travel, pollution, smog and humidity we bring a certain level of comfort at your feet and make you walk. All our Walks are designed and developed after a personal reconnaissance and personal experience. With time we have developed our expertise in providing an entirely different Holiday Experience. Our Waking Safaris, Rural Tours, Visits to Local families, Photography Tours and Painting Tours are designed after research, personal reconnaissance of itineraries to meet your gratification.
What we don’t
We are not a hotel booking agency. We are also not transporters or just holiday sellers. Neither, we offer the traditional Golden Triangle or Silver Dual. We are away from the regular tourist circuits and offer you entirely a different experience. We look for the remote trails, try to show you the life on the concept of “Back to Basics” and take you away from your daily hectic schedule. While planning your holiday to the hills, you are welcome to ask for the recommendations for accommodation units or for transport service that we shall provide only of demand, but our main focus remains on the products that we offer and we specialize in.
What we offer
We are here to offer an experience, a life time experience. If you are keen to approach the remotest regions in Himalayan ranges this can be for you. In case you are looking for a holiday where you can sit next to the reality and interview it in your own way, then these experiences are for you. Just go through the website or ask us to design a special package for you that brings you a different experience all together. With us you have a chance to have a personal interaction with nature.
A visit to Great Himalayan National Park with us shall be a great experience for you. You may also choose to go for a Jeep Tour with us and explore nature
How we work
We conduct a complete research, before any of our trip is finalized and offered. This practice is an essential part of our profession. We think big but remain careful about the details, so we pay full attention and complete focus on the continual improvement of our holiday products to meet your expectations.
For last twenty years we have been traveling in the hills still keep exploring them. A visit to some remote village, stay with some local family, camp in the wilderness, A Family History Tour, A festival holiday or a Corporate travel, we know what to offer and how to organize.
