An Overland Passage to Shimla (13 days)

India’s northwest corner contains some of the most contrasting cultures and landscapes in the entire subcontinent. This 13-day overland itinerary will take you from the pastoral plains of the Punjab, right up into the mountains of Himachal Pradesh, passing through the Tibetan capital in exile Dharamsala and across to Shimla, the most famous of all former British hill station retreats. As you move through the region you will absorb a variety of cultural influences: the boisterousness and warm hospitality of the Punjabis, the reverence of the Tibetans, the mythology of the Jaswan Rajputs, and quirkiness and engineering marvels of the British Raj. All of this while moving through some of the most dramatic scenery one can imagine!
