Walking in the Himalayas


from £1,390 pp

(ex international flights)


10 days

It is said that India resides in its villages; however, what most travellers get to see is just a glimpse of these villages. Indeed, to offer travellers a touch and feel of rural India we have devised a rural walk programme through some of the most unspoilt remote villages, enabling you to experience rural India from close quarters and allowing you to mingle with local communities. Charmingly, you also get to stay in some of these traditional village houses which are stunningly located and have been touched up (and added on with attached bathrooms) to provide very comfortable lodging without compromising on the authenticity. Our walks are accompanied by a walk guide, who will share the local knowledge with you and will assist in mingling with the communities - you may share a cup of chai with the local elders, pay obeisance at a temple or just soak in the stunning scenery while traversing the hills and valleys. As interests and capabilities vary, the walks are customised according to your needs. High levels of fitness are not required to do this program. You can set your own pace making the walk ‘easy’ or ‘moderate’. However, you need to be in general good health and used to walking. The luggage is carried by porters.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.
