Tailor Made North India Tours
North West India - From Botany to Buddhism
The northwest region of India includes Kashmir, Ladakh, Uttaranchal and Himachal Pradesh. From mountains to monasteries, fishing to flowers, you can be assured that you will find something to whet your appetite:
- Fly from Delhi to Leh and experience the exotic high mountain trade routes, spectacular mountain scenery and Buddhist monasteries. Also from mid June to mid September experience the adventure of a 4-wheel drive through the Kullu Valley to Ladakh.
- Follow the ancient trade routes and visit remote Buddhist monasteries.
- Relax on the banks of the river Baspa for some fine trout fishing.
- Trek to Gangotri (3048m) in the Garhwal hills, a place steeped in legend, source of the sacred River Ganges and the destination of thousands of pilgrims every year.
If you would like to experience the wonders of nature, you will enjoy the Valley of Flowers National Park in the Garwhal Himals, a U-shaped alpine valley rich in herbs, medicinal and flowering plants which explodes into a symphony of colour in July and August.
There are also many hill stations in this north india region, established during the days of the Raj when people took to the hills to escape the intense summer heat. Now also very popular with Indians, you will discover a wealth of fascinating English country architecture.
