  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

It's "White January" in hills as 5th snow spell hits region

Uttarakhand News


January continues to be "white" in the hills of north India as the monthís 5th spell of snow hit the region from Friday. Heavy to very heavy snowfall is expected across J&K and Himachal Pradesh on Monday and Tuesday, with Uttarakhand also in line to get wet weather.

After barely a day's break, yet another spell of moderate snow is likely to last the region from January 24 to 26, brightening the prospects of a snowy vacation for Republic Day vacationers headed to the hill stations of Uttarakhand, and particularly, Himachal Pradesh.

"We have issued a red alert in J&K from Saturday till Tuesday and in Himachal Pradesh for Monday and Tuesday, as very snowfall and rainfall is expected in parts of the region. For Uttarakhand, a lower level alert has been issued for heavy snowfall on Monday and Tuesday." Said B P Yadav, head of IMD's regional meteorological centre.

With at least six active western disturbances, against a normal of four-five, snowfall this January is set to be the highest in the past several years. The difference between this season's snowfall and what was seen last January which was a particularly dry month is clearly captured in Nasa's satellite images. Good snowfall is essential for water availability in the subsequent summer months, across north India.

"This is the best snowfall we have had in Uttarakhand in at least the last three years. Snow is the main source of water in the Himalayan Rivers that feed the northern plains. If we get 2-3 more snow spells of in February and March, water discharge in the rivers will remain relatively high till peak summer," said D P Dobhal, glaciologist at the Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology in Dehradun.

Uttarakhand's lone snow gauge at Mukteshwar has only recorded trace snowfall this month (on January 2019) indicating that the lower hills in the state havenít received much snow yet. However, the higher reaches are covered in white, including the shrines of Kedarnath and Badrinath.

"In Munsiyari in Pithoragarh district, we have had around five spells of snow so far this winter, which is around normal," said mountaineer Malika Virde, who lives in Sarmoli village, near Munsiyari. Srinagar has already received 54 cm of snow, very close to the entire month's normal of 57cm. "We expect above normal snowfall this winter," said Sonam Lotus, chief of Srinagar Met department.

Himachal too is in line for record snowall. Kothi in Kullu district has received 110cm of snow this month, nearly 15 times more than what it got last January. "Temperatures have been quite low this month. This, coupled with frequent western disturbances, has brought heavy snow in many districts of Himachal," said Manmohan Singh, head of the regional met department at Shimla.

Doon-Pithoragarh Flight: 4 days on, delay, cancellation irk passengers

Uttarakhand News


4 days after Doon-Pantnagar-Pithoragarh flight was inaugurated by chief minister Trivendra singh Rawat in a "major boost" to connectivity between Garhwal and Kumaon regions of the State, technical glitches spoil the initial jamboree. The flight was four hours late on Friday while the air service remained suspended on Sunday.

Subhash Anthwal, operational in charge of Heritage Aviation, the firm tasked by the government to run the air service, said, "Operations remained suspended on Sunday because of a technical glitch in the plane. We are trying to accommodate Sunday's passengers on Monday's flight. Till now, five Pithoragarh-Doon passengers while all Pithoragarh-Pantnagar passengers have cancelled their tickets. The plane will make an extra trip today to accommodate all the passengers."

Meanwhile, passengers expressed their dissatisfaction over flight cancellation within days of beginning the commercial operations. Climber Yogesh Garvayal, Mount Everest summiteers who had booked a ticket from Pithoragarh to Doon earlier, had to hire a taxi to reach Haldwani. "I had to spend more money and time for no fault of mine. It was a scheduled flight and the aviation company should have made arrangements for the passengers. The breach of Passengers trust on the 4rth day of the service itself doesnít bode well for the route," Garvayal said.

The flight connecting the state capital with the two key outposts of Kumaon has been envisaged under the ambitious UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Naagrik) scheme of the centre and is operated by Heritage Aviation which also provides heli services at Kedarnath during the Char Dham Yatra. Initially, a nine-seater plane is deployed on the route. The aircraft leaves Dehradun at 9.30 am and reaches Pithoragarh at 10.20 am.

After a 20-minute halt, the aircraft leaves for Pantnagar and reaches there at 11.10 am. The flight departs Pantnagar at 11.30 am and reaches Pithoragarh at 12 noon. At 12.20 pm, it leaves from Pithoragarh and reaches Dehradun at 1.10 pm. While the trip from Dehradun to Pithoragarh costs a passenger Rs 1,570, the fare from Pithoragarh to Pantnagar is Rs 1,410 per passenger. The Naini Saini airport had been inaugurated in 1991 but did not see any commercial flights for 28 years as clearance from the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) was pending.
