How a trip walking in the Kumaon Himalaya might look
Each of our journeys in India is tailor-made to suit your own interests, preferred style of accommodation, pace of travel and budget. Using a private car, driver and guides the following is a suggestion of how a trip might look if you’d like to walk in the foothills of the Indian Himalaya.
After flying to Delhi spend a day or two exploring the capital.
Take an overnight train from Delhi to Kathgodam and drive to the Almora area. Spend three or four days walking on quiet paths across fields, through forests and villages in the Kumaon foothills of the Himalaya with your guide. Spend each night in a simple but comfortable Kumaon village house.
Walk to the road head and drive to the remote Himalayan retreat, 360’ Leti. The final approach is a further one hour walk along a mountain trail.
Spend the next couple of days taking gentle strolls around the property, chilling out in a planter’s chair while soaking up the views, or taking longer guided walks to the Ramganga River, local shrines and waterfalls. Yoga and massages can also be arranged.
Walk back to the road head, drive to Kathgodam and take an overnight train to Delhi.
