10 day tour from £2395
This unique tour is ideal for active travellers who want to get off the beaten track and explore the magnificent Himalayan region of Kumaon on foot, whilst staying in modest village homes along the way.
The relatively unexplored region of Kumaon offers some of the most stunning scenery in the Himalayas, with soaring peaks, oak and rhododendron forests, terraced fields and fast moving rapids. Most importantly though, Kumaon is inhabited by simple and pious people, who have been able to preserve their unique culture and traditions.
The most inspiring and rewarding way to experience this stunning region is on foot. We'll walk you through unspoilt remote villages, enabling you to experience rural Kumaon from close quarters. Exchange stories with village elders over a cup of ‘chai’ or even help the men and women working in the fields.
Includes international flights, transfers, accommodation, all meals (except Delhi), snacks, tea/coffee and alcoholic drinks (Indian brands), English speaking guide during walks and a car at disposal during village walks.
You can undertake this walking tour anytime of the year (with the exceptions of the peak rainy season of June, July & August) . Each month of travel has its own charm:
Oct & Nov: Cool weather and the mountains views are good
Dec, Jan, Feb & Mar: Cold but the mountain views are at their best
Apr & May: Cool weather, mountains being to get hazy but rhododendrons are in full bloom
June, July, Aug & Sept: Pleasant temperature but it could be raining most of the days
Meal Plan: All inclusive (except Delhi)
