1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Trek in the Himalayas from Kafnu to Kara, the Ghandi museum in Delhi & the Taj Mahal.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you like trekking, this is a fantastic peaceful environment for it.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

My holiday benefited local people: the people who helped on the trek, local restaurants & shops, the guides, reps & drivers involved.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic experience especially by the fact the holiday was just tailored for me: it was just me on the trek with a guide, a helper, a horseman & 3 horses.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The view from our hotel roof of the lake and Palace Hotel at Udaipur; the beautiful and restful Humayun's Tomb in Delhi; staying in the Sarahan Temple guest house (until the 4am (amplified!) service started); the local wedding procession in Roghi, Himalchal Pradesh; the food at the simple Bouddhist Cafe in Sangla; and the challenge of finding rupees 3 days after all the 500 and 1000 rupee notes had been withdrawn from legal tender!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Discuss your plans with an expert. Our trip was designed by the holiday provider. He listened to what we wanted to do and worked with us to come up with the best itinerary for the time we had available. We would not have seen as much, or had as a good a time, without his advice.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

As far as possible, we stayed in locally run hotels and ate in smaller locally run restaurants. Invariably we found the privately owned and run hotels and cafes were better quality than state owned/managed ones, and the money spent went to the local people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

This was a return visit to India, although our last one was in 1987. It was great to see how positive, go-ahead and prosperous the country has become, without losing the colour, the culture and the mysticism that makes it India.
