SHAKTI HIMALAYAN JOURNEY

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

Delhi is an architectural feast, with a menu ranging from the spectacular early forerunners of the Moghul style of building – epitomised here by Humayun’s Tomb – to the pomp and circumstance of Lutyen’s colonial architecture. Impressive, but even more awe-inspiring sights await you just a scenic train ride away.

From Kathgodam you will be able to explore the mighty peaks, plunging chasms and the deep forests that are characteristic of Northern India’s Himalayan mountain ranges. You can hike through untouched hillside villages, see water-powered flour mills, discover huge rhododendron forests and stay in pavilions with stunning views of cloud-scraping peaks and rich green valleys.
