Garhwal & Kumaon Himalayas

Garhwal, a 448 Km expanse of the Himalayas is sandwiched between the Jammu & Kashmir Himalayas and Punjab Himalayas to the north and west and the source of Ganges. These Mountains have strong association with Hindu mythology and the religious shrines dating to centuries.

For example polyandry and polygramy coexist in the villages a few miles away on each other. Yet, to practice polyandry in a polygamous village is considered a sin by the latter!

Apart from their unique family set-ups, the people of Garhwal have a rich culture which manifests itself in colorful festivals. The Garhwalis have also bras hardy Mountaineers who provide very dependable an essential assistance to climbing and trekking expeditions to the area.

In Kumaon are situated some of the finest hill stations in not only India but in the world which combine the amusements and comforts of the modern hill resorts with easy access to the most magnificent natural surroundings.
