LIVE Q&A

In this series of virtual tours, we look at a vertical cross-section of the Kumaon Himalayas, which simultaneously represent different elevations and climatic zones, thus giving a sense of the scale and diversity of the landscape. We cover the foothill deciduous forests, the lake districts of Shivaliks, the conifer covered central hills, and icy glaciers of the Upper Himalayas. We talk to the forest-dwelling Pahadis and the agriculturalist of the terai, the shepherds of the high passes and the fishermen of the river valleys, visit the millennium-old stone temples, the quaint mountain villages and the odd colonial hill station.

All of the above is tied together with a contextual narrative on the evolution of the Indian Himalayas.

Virtual Tour is a Hit!

The knowledge and warmth of Aayush, our guide, made the experience worth everything. He is calm, smart, patient and a lovely person to spend time with.

Traveling from the comfort of home!

Felt as good and refreshing as one would post an actual walk around the ghats! :) This concept of conducting tours online, in a gamified format, is the closest thing to traveling that one can experience while locked down at home due to Covid19.

Amazing experience, it will tickle all 206 of your bones (of course metaphorically).. intellectual, spiritual, cultural, musical, gastronomical, historical etc etc.
