Highlights included arriving at the tented camp in India and sitting looking at the Indian Himalayas and again sitting outside the tent with blankets and tea to see the sunrise the following morning. Sunrise from Sailung summit was another highlight.
As all the people involved were from the local communities, we felt as if we were part of the community rather than tourists. We enjoyed being vegetarians for 3 weeks, with a variety of local foods.

The holiday was an unforgettable experience. We really enjoyed our time in the Himalayan villages and experiencing the culture and hospitality of the people. The ultimate highlight was our night at the tented camp. Although very cold the views throughout our stay were breathtaking.
We loved this holiday and learned such a lot. The walking and the stays in the villages were something we could never have organised for ourselves and gave us a humbling insight into the lives of the people in this remote area. The information provided about the guest houses was helpful and accurate; not luxurious but our hosts had taken trouble to provide a welcome place to stay. The food was uniformly excellent, particularly when cooked in conditions that would defeat most of us. The scenery was, as expected, breathaking and our short walls around the different villages interesting and informative. All arrangements at every stage worked well and we felt incredibly welcome and looked after by all our hosts and guides. The golden triangle trip that followed was a real contrast and provided some amazing sight seeing. We were glad to do it this way round and felt it worked well as an introduction to different aspects of India. I'm quite sure we will be back for more in the future.
