Luxury Himalayas & Foothills Tours

Lofty mountain ranges offering spectacular views, captivating sacred sites, national parks home to an abundance of rare wildlife, and a wide range of distinct cultures are waiting to be explored on a tour of the diverse and beautiful Indian Himalayas.

Born 50 million years ago, when India crashed into Asia, the Himalayas are the world’s largest crumple zone. Their intimidating peaks should not put you off visiting, especially if you focus on the Indian Himalayas, where the mountain hikes are more accessible and quieter than other areas.


Head west to Leh and Ladakh for stunning scenery and one of the world’s highest roads, spiritual Dharamshala the home of the Dalai Lama, and the scenic toy train to the fascinating hill station of Shimla.

Shimla Private Tour

Located in the foothills of the Himalayas over 2,000 metres above sea level, Shimla offers spectacular views and a comfortable cool climate. The capital city of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla is home to a variety of temples and churches, and its gravity defying Kalka-Shimla railway which has earned UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

Dharamshala Private Tour

Surrounded by cedar trees, Dharamshala is home to the Dalai Lama & the Tibetan government-in-exile. The town is a popular destination due to its altitude (1,457 m) and the surrounding woodlands. Following the occupation of Tibet, many refugees followed the Dalai Lama to Dharamshala and this Tibetan population has added to the attraction of town.
