Having many pious and religious sites of the Hindus, this place is densely visited by Hindus from all over the world. Some of the more common ones are Kedarnath, Badrinath and Joshimath. But this place has many more pilgrimage sites to explore. Some of them are not very accessible and some of them are open only during certain months in a year. We can also visit Gangotri, the glacier for holy river Ganga and Yamunotri, the glacier for the holy river Yamuna. Many pilgrims carry the waters of these glaciers to be used during religious rituals.

Many tourists visit these places to watch the natural scenic beauty, and not just for their spiritual pursuits. Some of the destinations are visited by tens of thousands of pilgrims during the time they are open.

We arrange treks to many such sites in Uttarakhand for guests all over the world. Some guests wish to visit these places in company of pilgrims while others like to do it when there are few pilgrims. We respect both types of demands and help them explore the nature as well as the spiritual aspect of Himalayas as they wish. There are no set plans or tour packages and each tour is customized to meet the needs of guests, time period and local conditions like amount of rush, weather etc.
