  • 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!

Drone to Monitor Man-eater Leopards in Rajaji Reserve

Uttarakhand News


A Joint team of the Wildlife Institute of India and Rajaji Tiger Reserve would be deploying a drone to monitor man-eater leopards in the reserve area. Forest officials said the monitoring via drone would help understand the behavior of man-eater leopard and prevent man-animal conflicts in the area.

The decision was taken in the view of 24 incidents of man-animal conflicts reported in last 3 years in Motichur, Raiwala and Haripukala areas in which 21 people were killed by leopards. Despite several efforts, we have been unable to keep man-eater leopards in the Motichor range at by.

Sanatan Sonkar, director of RTR said that we have decided to use drone to monitor the activities of the big cats in the area. It will be useful to understand behavior and collect data of man-eater leopard. The Motichur range of RTR is closed for tourists and locals.

The forest department has also installed warning boards in the area and even deployed forest team to stop people entering the range.

Helicopter Joy Rides over popular hill stations

Uttarakhand News


Nature lovers can soon enjoy fascinating views of snow-laden peaks in Auli and Mussoorie from a chopper. The Uttarakhand tourism department is planning to start helicopter Joy Rides over popular hill stations like Mussoorie and Auli.

The service, which will only be available during winters, is likely to take off by the end of the month. Dilip Jawalkar, Touirsm Secretary said that the department was in talks with private operators. A private operator said that a trip like this would cost anywhere between Rs 500 and Rs 10000 per passenger.

The choppers likely to be used for joyrides would be 5 seater and 9 seater planes. Each trip is likely to last 40 minutes. The choppers will take off from Dehradun for Mussoorie and Dhanaulti, Gauchar for Auli and Chinyalisaud for Uttarkashi.

The tourism department believes that the service would attract not just international tourists but also domestic ones eager to enjoy aerial views. Some residents in Dehradun also said that the novelty of enjoying snow capped mountains from the comfort of a chopper would be quite a draw.

Alok Negi, Dehradun resident said that the project will attract tourists even local residents who would enjoy the novelty of the idea.
