Rustic North Thailand

Thailand is known for its sun and sand, lovely beaches, tropical weather and crazy beach parties. However, if you go up North to the Chiang Mai region you will be surprised with a different Thailand. This mountainous region is blessed with lush forests and rich wildlife. Living together in the mountains are the hill tribe people and their elephants. For generations these villagers have coexisted with nature and over time have developed a vast knowledge of the forest environment. Recently, due to unregulated development and a booming tourism industry, the forests in Northern Thailand are dwindling with many elephants in captivity being forced into unnatural living conditions. These majestic animals no longer are roaming the vast jungles of Thailand but are forced to perform for human entertainment. Our experience is set in an elephant sanctuary that is working towards bringing as many of these magnificent creatures back to the forests to live as naturally as possible.

Ladakh Experience

3-10 Sep, On Request

Ladakh is the land of high passes blessed with natural beauty any other place in the world would envy. In ancient times it was an important outpost in the important silk route trade. Much of that richness esp. in culture and heritage is still very much reflective in the present day Ladakh.
Not much else needs to be said about Ladakh. A landscape vastly different from anything imaginable. Though so much has been talked and written about it that most people have an idea of the place, yet nothing can prepare you for what to expect the moment the door of the aircraft opens and this land opens its arms to you.

Sikkim Experience

Sikkim has lot of history since it has been nestled for ages between the ancient Tibetan, Bhutanese and Nepalese kingdoms, and later with the British that saw frequent historical exchanges, remnants of which can widely be seen.
Sikkim has a rich heritage seeped in Buddhism as can be evident from the number of beautiful monasteries each of which have a story to tell.
Sikkim has been very careful not to let development come at the cost of nature with a third of the state being heavily forested till date and a fourth of it being protected under the Kanchendzonga national park making it a state very rich in flora and fauna. Sikkim is also India’s first fully organic state. Not to forget the mighty Kanchenjunga which is of reverence to all there and forms a beautiful backdrop at a number of places.
The people of Sikkim are remarkably cheerful and friendly, urban centers in Sikkim are great places to chill out.

The quintessential Sikkim experience is an attempt to explore all of these – history and heritage, nature and mountains as well as the rich and unique local culture.

Kanamo Peak Ascent

10 Days

Kanamo in Spitian language literally translates into, “The Black Mountain”. The villages from where the peak is visible are located on the south side of this peak, from their location the mountain appears to be black in colour, and that is why it got its name. Kanamo also means mountain that has a lot of snow, if one were to reach the top and view the glacier on the north face, the second interpretation is quite appropriate too. The name doesn’t do entire justice to this friendly and beautiful peak, as it is black only in colour and not in spirit.
