  • 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!

Plans are also on to have an upgraded terminal, an extended runway and an officers’ colony at the airport.

Uttarakhand News


Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat on Wednesday, 6 March 2019 laid the foundation stone for the much-awaited Dehradun-Mussoorie ropeway project, which once completed will reduce travel time between the state capital and the Queen of Hills to around 10-12minutes. The Rs 300- crore project which will connect Purkal Village in Dehradun to Library Chowk in Mussoorie is expected to be completed within a three year time span.

Speaking on the occasion, Rawat said that the Doon-Mussoorie ropeway would be among the five longest ropeway projects of the world. “The ropeway would be made on a public private partnership (PPP) mode. A French company would provide technical assistance in the project,” the CM said. He added that the ropeway project "will definitely boost the tourism of Mussoorie.” “Around 1000-1200 people can be transported at one time using the ropeway. We will ensure that there is also a proper transportation system in place to bring tourists from ISBT, railway station and airport to the ropeway," the CM said.

Rawat added that parking was a major problem at Mussoorie and two parking slots near Jaypee Hotel and PWD office have been identified to solve the issue. He further said that in order to ease the traffic woes in Mussoorie, construction of roads at Hathipaon, Rajawala Doga, Chamasari and Byara-Dhanaulti is being undertaken. "A provision of Rs 200 crore has been made to end the drinking water problem at Mussoorie," The CM said.

He also inaugurated the building of a community health centre at Mussooie which has been built at a cost of Rs 5.50 crore. State tourism minister Satpal Maharaj said that efforts were on to connect more places in the state with ropeways. "These projects will save time and without acquiring much land, people can easily travel rom one location to other," said the minister.

Meanwhile, local residents in Mussoorie hailed the move. "This is a welcome step which would provide impetus to tourism in the town," said Sandeep Sahni, president of Uttarakhand Hotel & Restaurant Association. He however suggested that the Picture Palace area of Mussoorie, which attracts significant number of tourist, should also be connected with the ropeway.

Anuj Gupta, chairman of Mussoorie Municipal council. Added, "The ropeway once completed is expecte to reduce traffic influx to Mussoorie. However, there are a lot of challenges still as a number of NOCs are still required. I hope this process is completed in a timely manner."

Uttarakhand News


Gaucarh, a small town in Karnaprayag tehsil in Chamoli district, was on 6 March 2019 Wednesday adjudged the ‘Best Ganga Town’ under the Swachh Survekshan 2019. The union ministry of housing and urban affairs introduced this new category in this year’s annual survey.

Gauchar is located at the left bank of Alaknanda River, one of the main headstreams of Ganga, and has a population of around 15,000. Officials say that innovative ideas as well as public participation made this small town one of the best along the holy river.

"Measures such as plastic ban, clean Ghats and making the city open defecation free contributed in making the towns clean," said Chandresh Yadav, director of urban development directorate.
