Join us on this exciting trip in the timeless Indian Himalayan regions of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh. We'll walk through forests of cedar and pine, rustic mountain villages, visit age-old Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist temples and monasteries, explore fascinating bazaars, ancient stopping places on the old trade routes between India and Tibet. These regions and their people have a timeless, untouched quality.

The first part of the trip is in the lush forested region of Himachal Pradesh, south of the Great Himalayan Range. Though influenced by European settlers – from Alexander the Great’s soldiers to the British who settled in these valleys in the 19th century – the cultural traditions and practices of archaic Hinduism remain largely unchanged from ancient times.

The second part of the trip introduces us to Tibetan Buddhist culture in Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj, home of the Dalai Lama. We then fly over the Great Himalayan Range into the storybook high-altitude Tibetan Buddhist land of Ladakh.

We stay in fine Ladakhi hotels and sample the local cuisine, as well as Indian and Continental. Road travel in Ladakh is by deluxe SUVs and in Delhi by a/c cars.

This Himalayan adventure tour explores a still-thriving ancient way of life in a truly amazing part of the world. We hope you will join us.

“My trip with you replays itself in my mind quite often and makes me more eager every day to go back to India. I have been on quite a few tours and trips, many purported to be "educational" about history and culture of an area. None of them came close to yours. In the end, the leaders of the tour are the key to the experience.” Barbara McDonald
