Back to Basics


Back to Basics

This trek is especially designed to experience the village life of Himalayan people.We have chosen village Khola which is approx. 6 – 7 hrs from Rishikesh and is in a very remote and unexplored part of the Garhwal Himalayas. Most of the inhabitants of the village depend on the resources of the village for their survival. The water resources in the valley are natural. It’s a perfect place for meditation, yoga, nature walks, bird-watching and to experience outside silence and inside peace. The lush green forests of this region are home to an astounding multiplicity of flora and fauna. A description of the charismatic beauty of this village would be incomplete without a mention of the people who inhabit this blessed village – simple, willing to help and hardworking.

Overall this trip is a great combination of culture, local traditions, and lifestyle and offers some great views of Himalayas with unmatched beauty of Mother Nature.
