  • 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!

World Tourism Day: Indian travelers want home away from home

Uttarakhand News


NEW DELHI: When inns are excessively costly or just excessively dreadful and there are no friends or family with homes in the region, stress not. It's never again the finish of the occasion street, however perhaps the start of a get-away custom fitted to your needs on account of home stays that offer the opportunity to investigate new goals, have significant discussions and relish nearby delights.

The expanding numbers of individuals the country opening their homes to outsiders offers travelers the chance to live their movement dreams and reclaim an encounter of a lifetime. Checking out the new pattern in holidaying in front of World Tourism Day on September 27, industry specialists state Indian travelers are searching for a home away from home. With household explorers making 1.65 billion visits in 2017, as per Tourism service figures, the development capability of the early area is interminable, they said. The quantity of outside voyagers is additionally on the ascent with service figures uncovering that 10.5 million remote vacationers visited India in 2018. For Delhi-based Preeti Mishra, one of the individuals who occasions a few times each year, the casual develop of the homestays is engaging.

The PHD researcher at IIT-Delhi loves the way that she can return to a warm discussion with the proprietors or the guardians of the property, and not 'precisely' crash in her lodging, following a monotonous day of touring. "Home stays are comfortable. You get the opportunity to communicate with the proprietor, the cook, the cleaner, which is greatly improved than requesting nourishment at the gathering," Mishra, who has remained in home stays in Himachal Pradesh and Shillong, said. This adjustment in the inclination of the Indian explorer has prompted a perceptible move in the nation's movement scene. Online entry yatra.com has 3,500 home stays recorded crosswise over 300 urban areas, and has seen a 67 percent bounce in booking questions relating to homestays, said COO Sharat Dhall.

The numbers are much all the encouraging for Airbnb, an online commercial center for organizing or offering lodging, essentially home stays. The brand has more than 50,000 postings in India, including tree houses, natural home stays, legacy homes and private cottages. Amanpreet Bajaj, country manager at Airbnb, said the brand's postings have expanded by more than 150 percent since they propelled business in India in May 2016. "The interest for neighborhood, vivid travel encounters is one of the essential variables driving the exponential development of the home-sharing economy. That is the reason elective housing by and large show more elevated levels of visitor fulfillment than conventional facilities," Bajaj said. "Aside from being simple on the pocket, home stays give an extraordinary and nearby travel involvement to people," included Dhall.

While an enormous number of home stays are pocket-accommodating, some costing as low as Rs 250 every night, taxes can keep running into a few thousands if there should arise an occurrence of premium properties.

Nishiraj A Baruah's 'Home stay by the Tea Garden' in Dibrugarh is maybe as bona fide as one's stay in Assam can get. The proprietor guarantees his visitors approach all the fundamental administrations that one can discover at an inn, including air terminal exchanges, in room feasting, TV, clothing, and touring, yet in addition goes an additional mile to make them feel comfortable. "We offer nearby nourishment dependent on my mom's plans. Equipped with direct information about the area, I sit with my visitors and plan their schedules, take them for excursions, touring, shopping and eating out," said Baruah, who involves the ground floor of the property with his mom.

Maybe why Harday Gupta, who has gone through quite a long while of voyaging remaining in lodgings, finds home stays a reviving change. They break the dreariness of the predictable idea that is the inn - a brief secretary, a claustrophobic lift, a live with a bed, a TV and a washroom.

For him, each lodging feels the equivalent, yet every home stay appears to have a special encounter to offer. “Home stays have an alternate sort of a vibe, they are cool. Additionally, the inviting, cordial host is one thing that you will never get in a lodging," Gupta, a ranking director at a counseling firm, said.

Adaptable registration timings is the thing that does what needs to be done for Mumbai-based promoting proficient Kevin Harding. "I like the way that home-stays aren't exacting about the registration time," he said. As per Ankit Rastogi of Cleartrip, a movement site, home stays are turning into a gigantic hit at relaxation goals like Goa, Kerala and Pondicherry, and furthermore in spots like Ladakh, portions of the upper east and the Konkan belt that are grand yet not been marketed completely. Bhupendra Singh's Premkunj in Udaipur is an extravagance home stay.

Settled in greenery, the genuinely new six suite very good quality property is situated around five kilometers from the city. Premkunj is outfitted with offices like a pool and a café, and Singh, who lives there, frequently takes his visitors out for touring. A suite here costs Rs 6,000 per night, including breakfast. Homestays have additionally opened up lucky chances, for the two hosts and voyagers, to fashion fellowships that keep going past that week-long trip. Like for Nashik-based couple Uttara and Adwait Kher, who run the Utopia Farmstay, a five-minute drive from the well known Sula vineyards. A visitor who remained with them in June this year messaged them as of late to share updates on her getting an occupation. "After such a long time, she thought of informing us! It's an inspiring feeling. It resembles a portion of the visitors wind up getting to be more distant family and friends," Uttara said.

Sancturies in Himalayan States soon to preseve depleting water resources

Uttarakhand News


Dehradun: In what is charged as the counrty's first water sanctuary pilot venture 11 conditions of the Himalayan district just as Jammu and Kashmir are probably going to get 'water havens' soon. These water assets are being geo-mapped by researchers, hydrologists and geologists.

The 11 states – Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, seven north eastern states alongside West Bengal and Assam – would get a water sanctuary in one district each.

Of the 12 districts that have been chosen for moderating water, researchers have recognized three locale - Champawat of Uttarakhand, Dema Hesao of Assam and Darjeeling of West Bengal - in view of their own logical criteria while the staying nine regions, for example, Kupwara of Jammu and Kashmir and Chamba area of Himachal Pradesh have been chosen by the Niti Aayog's aspirational district list.

Researchers present at the fourth Himalayan Researchers Conference at Wildlife Institute of India (WII) revealed that water assets of 600 towns of Champawat and 200 towns of Almora have just been geo-mapped. These havens would have non-tainted water permeation inside the earth through precipitation and would be free of infringement and people. As indicated by specialists, their misuse by methods for cows munching and grub social event wouldn't be allowed.

The specialists included that a water haven would be recognized dependent on its "significance and utilization among townspeople and not according to its logical status". "A water asset that is most significant would clearly be the one that is being utilized, and in this way abused the most and henceforth, the water energize scene of that asset would be most likely the one which is exceptionally under pressure. We will preserve that scene which is really helping the asset to get water. Additionally, it won't be constrained uniquely to springs' scene as in specific spots it tends to be a lake or a lake." said Kireet Kumar, senior researcher of Govind Ballabh Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment and Sustainable Development (GBPNIESHD). As indicated by geologists and hydrologists, these Himalayan states are home to around three lakh little, medium and huge water assets which need consideration.

Unexpectedly, earlier year's Niti Aayog report has called attention to that practically half of the springs in the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) are evaporating. The report says evaporating of springs will influence stream of waterways which are real wellspring of crisp water for India's two perpetual streams – Ganga and Brahmaputra. Shortage of water hits ladies in the slopes just as untamed life, which regularly powers creatures to go for kilometers looking for water and even move. "We have models and examples of overcoming adversity from towns of Uttarakhand that individuals attempted to revive water table and the lakes demonstrated ascent in water level. The plans of government to make perpetual water havens would help the nation enormously," said MK Jain, head of office (hydrology), IIT-Roorkee. Be that as it may, these havens would fluctuate in each state. "We have yet not characterized a predefined land zone for these asylums on the grounds that it will unquestionably contrast in various geographies," said RS Rawal, executive, GBPNIESHD.

company's "above and beyond" customer service

Uttarakhand is amazing state and 2 1/2 weeks wasn't nearly enough time. We planned the trip because our daughter was studying abroad for the semester. Our travel planner tailored the trip to our specifications, quickly making any and all necessary changes. Traveling from the Garhwal to Kumaon, the itinerary was thorough and included maps, directions as well as additional activities to do in each location. We arrived on the Dehradun airport, just after a heavy rain storm that closed the roads to Mussoorie. This was to be our first excursion and we were a bit disappointed. We contacted our travel planner and her team in Uttarakhand who were diligent in trying to rebook a modified version of the tour. Due to weather it did not happen, but the customer service exceeded our expectations. The rest of our time went as planned with awe inspiring scenery from waterfalls, forest & himalayan views sites and relaxing daytrips to surrounding areas of Kanatal, Dhanaulti & Tehri. The real testimony of our travel company's "above and beyond" customer service.We can't thank her enough for handling this stressful situations during the tour.

All were top notch and wonderful experiences

Despite having to return 3 days early, I would say this was one of the best trips we've ever taken. Our travel planner set up a trip to remember with off the beaten track adventures and once of a lifetime things to do. He was also fantastic and a lifesaver with regard to the COVID-19 issues. He went above and beyond to take care of our revised travel plans and refunds and is still taking care of us. We would definitely use All Seasonsz and our travel planner again! The adventures that our travel planner set up. Car hire, auli tour, restaurants recommendations and hotels. All were top notch and wonderful experiences.

Wow !

Wow ! Simply the best trip of our lifetime.We think we are fortunate to choose this travel agency as a potential agent to be a partner in planning our trip. The agency planned a two week trip and even when the weather and the covid virus hit. She never lost sight of our trip and how to ensure we had the information to make the decision right for us. We choose to have the agenda adjusted to avoid areas of our concern. The new agenda provided us a more unique experience than we anticipated. Especially thanks to "Jyoti" the travel planner from All seasonsz and the travel team.

We had a five star holiday!

We had worked with this travel agent before and had found her to be professional, helpful, and wonderful to work with. Accordingly, we chose to work with her again this year as we began planning our annual diving holiday. Again, this travel agent distinguished herself as the consummate professional, and more than that, a person with a huge amount of patience and empathy.We were relieved that our agent still had enthusiasm for our trip, and came up with several suggestions.All of the special requests and arrangements must have been a headache for our agent, but it all worked out. We had a five star holiday!

One of our favorite vacations

We had a large group, 24 people from small children, teens and adults traveling to Uttarakhand from Kolkata. I contacted this Uttarakhand travel agent and from the first the contact person-Mayank was very patient, very prompt, responded to all my emails and all my questions. He and his team arranged a wonderful vacation for us. We had a private bus, always prompt, always clean. Our hotels were perfect, clean, modern amenities. The rooms were always ready for us and everything was consistently smooth. It was a well organized, wonderful and memorable tour of Uttarakhand. We got to see and do so much and this agent had arranged it all! From rafting to bungee jumping, to cable car ride in Auli we did it all! One of our favorite vacations!!
