    Sikkim's Trekking is the most popular, which takes us to the foot of Mt. Kangchenjunga, the 3rd highest peak in the world. The Singalila trek in Sikkim is said to cover the political boundary between Nepal and Sikkim. Singalila trek has a barren landscape, which is devoid of any trees and boasts of steep and rocky hills. The folds and grassy meadow of Singalila adds delight to trekking at Singalila. It offers majestic view of the Himalayas. This trek allows the trekkers to walk through the forests containing silver firs and rhododendrons: the trekking routes up to the alpine plains of Dzongri contain a dense growth of forests. For trekking in borderline areas near the Nepal border we are expected to apply for permit.

    We can trek on easy narrow paths along the Indo-Nepali border, sometimes at the edge of the jungle, sometimes from rhododendron forests. The main Sikkim monasteries (Pemayangtse, Tashiding, Rumtek) provide a touch of culture and make this journey a rare venture.

    The trek lies amidst the grandeur of the mountain peaks, lush green valleys cascading waterfalls and fast flowing rivers, beautiful monasteries and terraced hills, Sikkim offers its visitors a rare and exotic experience.

    Most of the dwellings in Sikkim are rustic, consisting of a bamboo frame, woven with pliable bamboo and coated with cow dung, providing a warm interior. In the higher elevations, houses are made of wood. Sikkim is one of the few states in India to receive regular snowfall.

    Among the Sikkim's Treks, most popular trek is the foot of Mt. Kangchenjunga, the 3rd highest peak in the world.Though the view of Kanchandzonga chains is enjoyed from various viewpoints, but the most beautiful view to these mountains is from Dzongri & Gochila (4800m).The panoramic views of the peaks and Himalayan ranges will rejuvenate you both physically as well as mentally.

    Like all Himalayan Treks, in this trek, you will hear nothing but the whistle of the wind, soothing sound of brooks flowing down the hills, songs of birds in different tunes, shrilling crickets & sometimes, the whistling Lepchas or Tibetan yak herders.

    This trek starts from Yoksum to Goecha La Pass, at 5000m. A lush countryside of subtropical forests, rhododendron forests, alpine meadows where the Yaks graze in high valleys surrounded by glaciers and snow capped peaks of the Khangchendzonga range.

    Kanchandzonga trek is one of the perfect trekking in sikkim landscapes in India. This trek starts from Bagdogra to Goecha La. The best season is April-June & the October-December period. Trek ends at Phuentsoling in Bhutan or at Bhadrapur airport in Nepal. Glaciers and snow capped peaks of the Khangchendzonga range overlooking the pristine Himalayan environment. It is the homeland of three different tribes, namely the indigenous Lephcas, Nepalese & Bhutias. Many such tours make Sikkim one of the hottest destinations in India.

      AAHVAN ADVENTURE

    Its a short but action packed Ladakh trip full of fun-filled activities. At a distance of 125kms Westwards from Leh, on a miraculously pulchritudinous road, exists the classic royal monastery famous as Swastika or Yung - drung. On this trek there are several villages which stand among the richest in Ladakh tour package. This particular terrain is known as Sham valley or Apricot valley. It is one of the oldest in Ladakh, and belongs to the Kargyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism.

    For that extra adrenaline rush one can enjoy thrilling and adventurous biking from Tsokar to Tsomoriri Lake. To top it up one could enjoy white water rafting along the Zanskar River right from Chilling to Nimo.

    It is known as Baby trek. The name is due to its lower altitude and the passes and comparatively less walking hours. One will notice how a stream of chilly water has led to an oasis of life amidst barren wilderness. Through the sham valley and the ancient kingdom of Sham, we discover the main Ladakhi monasteries and the wonderful sites surrounding them: Shey, Thikse, Hemis, Spituk, Phyang, Lamayuru and Alchi are all accessible by road, and Temisgang, Ridzong and Likir line the trekking route. The paths are of moderate difficulty and it does not rise above 4500m. T

    he track crosses numerous villages where the people have kept their Tibetan ways and customs. A camera is a must for this tour and one can take it as a Photography trip also and shoot the landscape as well as people. We also have the option of staying in a local house during this trek as it traverses through some houses; specially appointed for village Homestay.

    The Ladakh trek involves a series of pass crossings and first day is the drive to Timsogam a small village and then the trek starts with ascending a slope which leads us to the pass crossing over the Rongthil la( 4,000m) and then another pass the Muptak la( 3,800m) is crossed and finally the large village of Hemis Shukpachan is reached. Next days walk is a level walk till the base of Tsermangchan la which is crossed after a gentle ascend at 4,600m and a further descend leads us to the village of Yangtang.

    Next days walk is also an easy walk and after crossing Chagtse pass at 4,200m descend to the village of Likir which is connected to road and houses a large monastery. Visit the monastery and then walk to the village of Rafta. Once we cross the Mandang la pass (4,100m) we will reach Umla and from here its comparatively an easy trek to the village of Taroo, which is a big village just behind the village of Phyang which houses an important monastery in Ladakh tour. As a matter of fact the Phayang festival which happens to fall in July is equally famous. From here we take a final drive to Leh.

    Rafting:

    A 3 hour adrenaline packed rafting experience on the Zanskar for the thrill maniacs. It starts down right from the famous Hemis monastery. You would float alongside the villages of the Indus Valley (the cradle of civilization) i.e. Stakna, Shey, Thiksey, Choushot with Choglamsar as the finishing point.

    Biking:

    Our move to include mountain biking holidays is an obvious step. This programme has now grown to include biking in the remote valleys of Lahaul, Ladakh, Kulu, Sikkim and the eastern Himalayas. The fully supported Leh - Manali bike ride is now an established classic, crossing three high passes, the highest being over 5600 mtrs, and with a total descent of over 10000 mtrs.
