Our newest India tour takes place in one of India's newest states, Uttarakhand, and focuses on the Garhwal and Kumaon regions. This is hill country--the roads are twisty and divine and the views are varied and stunning. In the lower hills think steep, jungly ridges and terraced fields of emerald green. Think old forts, British hill stations (most of our stays are in hill stations), deep gorges and rushing rivers. But these are the mountains, so also think superb views of high, snow-capped peaks as they pierce the clouds and scrape the indescribable blue of the Himalayan skies. Our route begins in the lower hills of Dehradun and wends its way up, skirting the Nanda Devi National Park before dropping back down into the Jim Corbette National Park. And yes, wild Tigers do roam these hills! We finish the tour with a stop in Rishikesh for some sadhu consultation and possibly a bit of white water rafting. Roads are paved throughout and riding difficulty is moderate. Traffic will be generally light, but these are the hills, so twists and curves require constant attention.The perfect seasons for this ride are early fall and spring,
