About Us

The Himalayas span 3000 kms across the northern boundary of India…..

Originating  in the east from a knot between Myanmar,  China and India,  the Himalayan chain continues to the border of Bhutan. Beyond that lies Sikkim, home to many peaks . The Himalayan range west of Sikkim forms part of Nepal until you reach the border of Uttarakhand , which hosts many major peaks , including the Nanda Devi. From here the Indian Himalayan chain continues without a break through Himachal Pradesh  Ladakh and finally  Kashmir .

Traditional folk dances like the Jhora, Cholia , and Chhapelli are great to watch. Being a border town Munsiyari was “out of bounds” to most tourists until the mid 1990s . During the past few years it has gained in popularity and is almost a “must visit” destination in the Indian Himalaya. For people in search of high adventure , It is the starting point for some of the best high altitude treks that are listed in the Lonely Planet!
