The seond holiday created and organised by Village Ways is based between the villages of Supi and Jhuni in the Saryu Valley, and the villages of Karmi and Dhurr in the neighbouring Pindar Valley. Here, close to the Tibetan border, the landscapes are on a grand scale, with wide-open views across forest-fringed meadow uplands towards the snow-capped peaks of Nanda Kot and Nanda Devi.
In most villages you stay in guesthouses converted, with the support of Village Ways, from grand old village houses or ‘barklays’. These are long buildings with whitewashed walls, a stone roof and intricately carved doorways which traditionally provided accommodation for several generations of the same family.
Insight: new employment
As on other Village Ways holidays, the guesthouses employ a number of villagers in the form of cooks, porters and housekeepers, helping to keep the local communities vibrant.
