Kumaon lies at the lower Himalayas. Situated between Garhwal and Nepal, Kumaon has an unspoiled natural environment where woods and wildlife are yet to unfold their mysteries. Local religious cultures and ancient customs are still alive here. In this area, cultures have blended together leaving behind a mixture of architectural wonders like ancient temples, ancient paintings and beautiful Kumaoni houses set amongst green terraces. Our program covers both, the cultural and natural aspects of this region.
Each season brings its own charm. Spring brings in blue skies, fruit trees blossom, and the forests turn scintillating red with rhododendron flowers. Autumn comes in with golden sunshine, hills dotted with cosmos flowers and the wild cherry trees in bloom. Winter is crisp and clear, the sweet scent of the mimosa filling the air.
Starting from Delhi we take you to explore the magnificent beauty and diversity Himalayas offer. We drive to Binsar with great Himalayan views and excellent hospitality, it is a perfect base to explore Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is an ideal destination for adventure lovers, bird watchers, and nature lovers.
The village treks lead through picturesque villages with wonderfully carved doors and windows, terraced fields, waterfalls, streams and pine, cedar, oak and Rhododendron forests.
Downhill to a spiritual hamlet of Jageshwar comes next where you can explore its ancient 8-12th century Shiva temples and stay overnight at Van Serai Lodge. With morning Yoga sessions and options for massage as well, you can choose to soak in the spiritual energy of this holy area or go for hikes in the surrounding woods.
