Overnight stays in the village houses gives you a chance to experience their warm and genuine hospitality.You stay in village houses during the walks. The accommodation is rustic but clean and has all the basic amenities. The houses have been partially renovated and amenities added without spoiling the ambience.
After a day’s walk you can freshen up with a hot bucket bath. Food is cooked hygienically and mineral water is provided. The trek starts in the region of Almora which is the first British hill station (1815) in Kumaon district of Uttarakhand. Kumaon offers a natural environment where forests and wildlife have still to unfold their mysteries. Local religious customs and ancient traditions are very much alive here.
