The Himalayan foothills of North India offer spectacular scenery as well as a wealth of religious shrines and ancient monuments.
Our Himalaya tours explore gentle green hills and valleys, flower-filled meadows, rushing streams, waterfalls and forests set against a dramatic backdrop of snow-capped peaks.
In addition to the incredible scenery, there are many towns and locations of important cultural and religious heritage in the region. These include the holy Sikh city of Amritsar featuring the Golden Temple, and McLeodganj, the present home of the Dalai Lama.
Beautiful Shimla is a nature lovers paradise, with hills of thick pine and cedar trees set against a backdrop of Himalayan peaks. Not surprisingly Shimla was the summer capital of the British Raj, with many grand houses still remaining.
The starkly beautiful desert landscape of Ladakh in far north India is dotted with ancient monasteries, fluttering prayer flags and high peaks amidst breathtaking, dramatic mountains. It’s villages and monasteries retain strong Buddhist cultural links with Tibet.
Sikkim in the far east of India is also famous for its Buddhist traditions as well as tea plantations and its picturesque views of the Himalayan region.
