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.

Considering the vast and varied landmass, it comes as no surprise that India's climate is complex. If you prefer to avoid extremes of heat and rainfall, it's best to aim for the cooler, drier months of October through to March. However, if a trip to either of the country's extremities appeals, take note: For the southern states, the retreating monsoon (October to December) is a consideration. Here, you find the most appealing climate between November and February. For reliable trekking weather in the Himalayas 1000km to the north, peak season is October, November and then March and April.
