    Tawang Valley works a special magic on the minds of travelers. The valley is a gorgeous patchwork of mountain ridges, vast fields and clusters of Buddhist monasteries and Monpa villages. Murals of auspicious Buddhist emblems and colourful prayer wheels add interest to the central Old Market area. The views from Sela Pass are spectacular. The lake, for the most part would be frozen during winter. The sunrays kissing the mountaintop give you a different version of the mountain. Summer or winter, you are sure to love the experience. Sela Pass is rightly called the ‘Heaven on earth’.

    Kaziranga National Park – a world heritage site, the park hosts two-thirds of the world’s Great one-horned rhinoceros. Kaziranga also boasts the highest density of tigers among the protected areas in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. The famed one-horned rhinoceros, one of India’s best-known tourism wildlife mascots, calls the expansive grasslands of the Kaziranga National Park home.

    One of the Highest Jeep Safari in the World

    The roads of Kinnaur, Spiti&Ladakh are open only for 2-3 months, between July and September, every year before the snows cover it up or wash away the road. This overland route had become an increasingly popular way to go to Leh. The advantage of the road route is that one sees an amazing panorama of nature ‘s beauty and also gets gradually acclimatized to breathing in the high altitude atmosphere. An unforgettable experience as the road traverses a variety of landscapes and one can hardly put the camera away. Along the way nature impresses with awesome mountain passes of 17-18,000 ft., long stretches of the flat, cold desert without a trace of vegetation, amazing natural rock formations and deep gorges of the rivers Sutlej, Beas, Chandra, Bhaga and finally Indus. From the snow-clad mountains, when the snows melt, one sees beautiful waterfalls and gurgling crystal clear mountain streams. Along the streams and rivers are human habitations with pockets of rich cultivated green fields, fruit orchards and wild exotic plants used for preparing herbal medications.




    Many of us think that the Himalaya is only made for those people who want to do trekking or climbing but aren't true. The Himalayas are also recognized for those who love to travel in Himalayas ' region. This is the best way to explore the Himalayas Safari.

With its capital at Shonitpur, this former princely state was extended up to an entire area of Kinnaur where for sometimes Lord Shiva disguised himself as Kirat.
