The youngest, largest and highest chain of mountains in the world, the Himalayas is one of the natural wonders of the earth. Cradled within lush sub-tropical forests of the foothills to the bitterly cold high altitude forests, is the bountiful flora and fauna that is a tribute to the nature lover and photographer of the wild.

Our Multi-Activity adventure trip aims to provide an insight into the diversity and grandeur of Kumaon. The trip takes you through mysterious thick forests, deep valleys, snow-clad peaks and the rugged, barren trails that offer a lingering thrill to the adventure seeker. This is enhanced by the cultural enigma of the land. From the lower altitude wilderness, where every flower truly enjoys the air that it breathes to the rough rocky terrain where the land formations set the hills on fire in their rich variant hues. From the first ray of the rising sun to evening's deepest glow, the landscape unravels the untaught harmony of the primitive wild. The springtide blossoms, the whistling airborne species, the mysterious wild and the picturesque valleys come together to offer a romance hitherto unseen, unheard or untold.
