For almost a decade, we as Walk to Himalayas believe that we have witnessed dramatically different cultures and faiths amalgamate over bonfires, over a cup of tea at a straw thatched tea-stall in a remote village or during a trek.
When a kid from South Mumbai who’s idea of recreation is playing on iphones and ipads, has the most joyous times learning to toss stone in the lakes of Sat Tal with a shepherd boy. When an investment banker in one of the biggest MNCs is reminded of his grandmas food, when he is eating dinner in a cowdung smeared hutment of an old lady in a small village in Didina during his Roopkund trek. When a gang of college students find sitting around the bonfire singing old Kishore Kumar songs in a starry night in Dodital more memorable and cherished than the lounge parties and rock shows.
With a small group of fervent guides and professional travel experts, we have evolved over the years to bring out the most innovative of journeys to places which are unmapped and uncharted. It is always the most fulfilling experience to make people see similarities in these fascinating differences and in these moments we discover our true passion as a travel company. For us, travel is about experience; the experience of becoming a part of the place and its natives and thereby letting you take back to your world some fragments of their culture, cuisine, tradition and nature. Our belief has always remained that it is not just which destination you travel to but the way you travel that makes the difference; a difference that comes from experience and a guiding principle – of making each journey as amazing as the destination itself.
