India is the name given to the vast peninsula which the continent of Asia throws out to the south of the magnificent mountain ranges that stretch in a sword like curve across the southern border of Tibet. Shaped like an irregular quadrilateral, this large expanse of territory we call India, deserves the name of a subcontinent. Ancient Geographers referred to India as being "constituted with a four-fold conformation" (chatuh samasthana samsthitam), "on its South and West and East is the Great Ocean, the Himavat range stretches along its north like the string of a bow".
Here we find the source of India’s Holy Ganges River where a small glacial stream in Gangotri begins its travels through the length and breadth of north India, nourishing her people today much in the same way as it did in ancient times in this predominetly Hindu culture. In the Indian Garhwal Himalayas we visit the Char-Dham, four of Hinduisms most holy pilgrimage sites nestled in these high mountain valleys.
We also offer explorations to northeast India, both Sikkim, with a history of its own, and Darjeeling, famous for its tea gardens and outstanding views. Heading to the far northwestern reaches of the Indian Himalayas we find Ladakh, where the traditional culture of Tibet continues to thrive much like it did in centuries past.
