Experience the grandeur of the world’s highest mountains
Often described as the place where earth meets sky, the Himalaya is the world’s highest mountain range and it has been luring visitors to its peaks, since ancient times. While for many, a Himalaya trip is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, for the Tibetans, Indians and Nepalese who live there, these awe-inspiring mountains are a backdrop to their daily lives. Our Himalaya tours will help you experience, first-hand, the natural wonders of this remarkable region.
Derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘abodes of snow’, the Himalaya was named by the ancient pilgrims of India who travelled its mountains, many years ago. The Indian Himalayan Region is a range that spans ten states of India; from the foothills in the south and extending up to Tibetan plateau in the north. Many of its rivers are considered holy, like the Ganges and Yamuna which flow down from the lofty peaks.
While the Himalaya is a Mecca for hikers, trekkers and mountaineers, its exceptional beauty is also a powerful draw for those looking for peace and tranquility. Scattered amongst the mountains are hill stations which the British established in the days of empire. These attractive towns with their cool mountain air make a perfect retreat from the heat and humidity of the monsoon season. And with our Himalaya trips and tours, we’ll help you set your own pace. Our travel consultants and expert guides have a unique understanding of the area, with all its challenges and rewards.
