For six months every year, the Himalayan valleys of Kinnaur, Spiti and Ladakh emerge from a thick cloak of snow, to reveal a different, secret world to man. Frozen glaciers and rivers start to flow with unseen fury, the earth turns into a swathe of colour, mountains unlock secret doorways, and local inhabitants come out in celebration of life itself.
At dizzying heights of 2,700 m to 4,200 m, the experience is almost surreal, when god and nature seem to lure man, perhaps even challenge him, to make the journey into their den of barren deserts, fierce mountains, turbulent rivers, dense forests, and moody skies. It is as though you are at the last frontier of civilization, and yet, you''re not alone. This is where your journey of discovery in the lesser-known Himalayas begins, with Banjara Camps to show you the way.
