The Himalaya are the highest mountain range on earth. The mountains of the Himalayas are spread across a number of counties – Nepal, Bhutan, China, Pakistan and India.
Although Nepal is home to Everest the highest mountain in the world can be seen from India. Due to the border dispute with Pakistan sections of Jammu and Kashmir are not open to visitors but most of the other regions are considered safe to visit. Although not detailed on this website we can arrange visits to Nepal and/or Bhutan from India if required. This is an area of pristine natural beauty and a fantastic area for walking.
