Where are the Gypsies going this winter?

October 19, 2009

The Fabulous-3 relaxed trip (Nov 7th-Nov 15th)

If you’d like an unhurried relaxed trip, or are traveling with smaller kids, this trip is for you! We will be spending a few days in Cherrapunjee, the heart of the Khasi hills in Meghalaya, Kaziranga National Park – home of the rhino and Majuli – the largest river island in the world, a bird-watcher’s paradise and a place where Vaishnavite and tribal culture co-exist side by side. Relax and go back connected with nature.

Entering the Land of the Thunder Dragon (3rd week Nov, 2nd week Dec-depending on group size)

Think of whitewashed fortresses, snow-capped mountains, and deep-forested valleys. Think of monasteries perched on lofty cliffs and fluttering white prayer flags. Add to the picture cheerful people in colorful attire, a fiery chilly-spike cuisine, and you get the general idea of the lovely country of Bhutan. The Gypsies are going to soak of all this in, and you are invited to join us

Hornbill festival and rock-contest in Nagaland (1st Dec- 8th Dec)

You’ve always known that NE is a hot-bed of Western music and tribal traditions – we’re going to see the two come together in this amazing one of a kind festival in Kohima. The largest gathering of tribes in Nagaland, with each tribe showcasing their own unique heritage, and rock artists battling it out in the annual Rock contest in the middle of the lovely hills of Nagaland. We cannot miss this heady cocktail, can you?

Towering mountains and quiet monasteries (Dec 25- Jan 3rd)

If you are interested in tribal culture or in Buddhist experiences, or if lofty snowy peaks is what you love, Western Arunachal is for you. With the second-largest monastery in the world at Tawang, and the second highest motorable road at 14,000 ft. called the Sela Pass, this is one trip that will make you more than a little breathless!

Birding and wildlife trip

You’re a nature enthusiast and love bird-watching and wildlife spotting – hikes and nature trails are what you love to do! Come with us as we stalk through one of the most bio-diverse regions in the country – hoping to spot Elephant herds, rhinos grazing in the grasslands, wild buffaloes, gibbons, and as many as 450 bird species, including the Great Hornbill and the endangered white-winged wood duck!

Village tours and home-stays

We will take you to villages across the states – see how the Naga girl weaves her shawl, or the Assamese woman weaves her dreamy silks. Or how paddy is harvested, and how we in the NE celebrate the harvest festival, Bihu, with elaborate feasts. Get a feel for how different the experience is from urban or small town India, and a chance to appreciate a different life from our own
