Places Visited
Himachal Pradesh, Delhi
Himachal Pradesh extends from the plains of Punjab, north of Delhi, to the high crest of the Himalaya and includes some of the finest trekking in India. To show the distinct variety of landscape, which is an attractive feature of the southern Himalayan foothills, we take a route through the lush green Kinnaur valley to the high mountain desert of Spiti. After a fascinating train ride to the British Raj hillstation of Shimla, we drive on the old Hindustan to Tibet road, through forest, rice fields and apple orchards, to the remote district of Kinnaur to begin our trekking in Kafnoo to cross the Bhaba pass. This major watershed crossing is part of an ancient trading link between Kinnaur and Spiti and is still used by the nomadic Gaddi herdsmen who travel widely throughout these Himalayan foothills. After visiting some of Spiti's ancient monasteries and then drive across the Kunzumla pass (4550m) to Manali from where we return to Delhi.
