Trip Summary

“Those who travel to mountain-tops are half in love with themselves, and half in love with oblivion.”

Robert Macfarlane

Uttarakhand is truly a beauty on its own. From  picturesque locations to  adventure treks, it has all that you could ask for. It could be a poet’s muse ,a trekker’s long found home or for someone a place to lose themselves only to be found again. No words can do justice in describing this place as the eyes would. 

So if you are looking for a full fledged trip to these magnificent places and want to witness its beauty here we have planned the perfect trip for you. 

Why go looking for the Swiss mountains  when we have our Chopta  valley  which has the perfect snow capped mountains and the world’s highest temple of Lord Shiva, the Tungnath temple . Chandrashila peak which is 4000 meters in height is conquerable by hiking a km from the temple. The 360 degree views of some of the highest peaks in Uttarakhand at Chandrashila peak are something which will leave you mesmerized for life. The small yet picture-perfect town of Auli is India’s premier ski resort destination. The mighty Trishul peak and the glorious Nanda Devi are going to perplex you with their beauty. 

Along with this, experience the crazy yet calm life of Rishikesh. Zipping over the Ganges, bungee-ing down to the river, white river rafting and kayaking or engrossing yourself in the energy of evening Aarti , meditating and practicing yoga , Rishikesh is a complete package in itself.
