Foothills of The Himalaya
When we talk about snow capped mountains and adventure, Himalayan mountain ranges are at the top of line. White water rafting down the Ganges and trekking through Nature’s rich bounty are the best experiences one can ever dream of. Very pristine and beautiful Hill Stations are strewn across this part of North India. God created Nature therefore also selected Himalayas as his abode and this is apparent in many famous temples in this region which represent the fulfillment of religious journey of Char Dham.

TestimonialDear Mr Sharma,
First, I am sorry to have taken so long to write and thank you for organising my trip. I arrived back in Australia in early March and have been working immense hours (at least 70 hours a week from March-July, including in the USA). I also suffered a catastrophic failure of my computer several days after arriving back in Australia, which meant I could not access the correspondence we had prior to my trip (which I refer to below). The computer and data were finally restored on Friday last week. Against this backdrop, it is not until now that I have had the opportunity to sit down and write thoughtfully. I knew you had the positive written feedback on the form I had left with Laxman at the end of my journey, but I had wanted to write more fully. So I do sincerely apologise for not emailing sooner.
Second, I would like to thank you very much for organising an excellent trip to India. Laxman was superb. He is a skilled driver, and an honourable, intelligent man. He took great care of me and I couldn’t have been happier with my driver. Thank you very much indeed for organising Laxman for my trip.Alexandra George
