More Information

The Garhwal Region, dominated by the awe-inspiring Nanda Devi Sanctuary, is arguably the centre piece of the Indian Himalaya. The area to the west is known as the outer sanctuary and makes for a superb region for walking, with magnificent panoramas of Nanda Devi, Trishul and the Badrinath peaks.

Starting from Delhi we board our morning train from New Delhi railway station for Hardwar to meet your vehicle and drive to Srinagar, the largest town in the Garhwal Himalayas. We travel into the mountains and reach the trailhead at the village of Lohajung. From here we follow part of the approach route used by the 1936 expedition of Shipton and Tilman, which takes us through remote villages, forests and alpine pastures skirting the edge of the Sanctuary. We trek in the shadow of the great peak of Trishul before ascending the Kuari Pass (at 4268 metres - the highest point on the route). From here we appreciate amazing views of the north region across the main Himalaya range towards Tibet.

The tour concludes with visits to Joshimath & Rishikesh - sacred towns located on the Ganges and the destination for thousands of Hindu pilgrims who visit here every year. Before return to Delhi a short visit to Hak Ki Puri the holy bathing Ghats in Haridwar

We’ve just returned from a fabulous visit around North India with Active India. Our guide Ketan was friendly, knowledgeable and organised lots of additional activities for us. He really went above and beyond and made the trip so special for us - thank you Ketan and Active India!

5 Stars

This was an Exceptional holiday, that exceeded my expectations. The tour Guides were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them, they made this trip special.

After many years of wanting to visit India, Active India was recommended by some friends who had made a similar trip last year. From the outset this company was excellent from the planning and fine tuning of our special holiday right through the trip until its conclusion. Drivers and guides were excellent and hotels were as we had booked- some good 3 stars and some beautiful havelis and 4 stars. The company even had a whatsapp group set up to provide instant help with anything that came up. We travelled through Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala. It was a fascinating and richly cultural experience. Active India is an excellent company which has been in existence for 20 years and we would highly recommend them.
