Eastern Himalayas Family Holidays

eastern himalayas family holidays lead.jpg

The Eastern Himalayas and North-eastern India are an absolute treasure trove of delights for the active family. One of the best kept secrets in north Bengal is Jaldapara National Park which hosts one of the highest populations of rhinos outside of Kaziranga - and best of all there are hardly any tourists.

This is a real adventure in the foothills of the Himalayas. From here the mountains of Darjeeling and Sikkim beckon where the Singalila Ridge trek offers one of the greatest mountain walking routes in the world. On a clear day in November, with the air washed clean after the monsoon, the entire panorama of the Kangchenjunga Massif is spread seemingly within touching distance. This is an area of tremendous wildlife as well. After the rigours of the trek, Glenburn Tea Estate is a perfect stop on your Himalayas holidays. The tea estate which drops down to the Rungeet River provides some excellent and energetic walking and for a family the River Lodge on the banks of the Rungeet is perfect. You can fish, go rafting and enjoy barbecues and picnics as well as learn how to make tea! Glenburn is also a perfect spot from which to experience the awe-inspiring Darjeeling Himalayan Railway.

Further East into Assam is a wonderful estate for those who enjoy riding, offering wonderful horses and rides along the Brahmaputra River. And Assam of course has one of the greatest national parks in Asia - Kaziranga with its huge populations of Rhinoceros, elephants, birds and tigers - which are not very visible.

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
