Tea plantation tours: India is famous for its great variety of tea. The most famous is the one, which is grown in Darjeeling and exported throughout the world. Summit to Sea offers a unique trip to a few of these tea plantations on the slopes and the lower regions of the eastern Himalayas.  We will be able to combine a tea plantation tour with a trek near Darjeeling for example the Sandakphu route.                                                                                      For more information, please contact us.                                              Please visit http://summittoseatours.com/Tea_plantation_tour.html for details about a guide to a tea plantation tour.


Kerala – ‘God’s own country’: Kerala described, as the Venice of the east is a place people dream to visit.  Kerala is situated in the southwest part of India.  With its emerald backwaters, lush green hill stations and exotic wildlife, ayurvedic health resorts, enchanting art forms, magical festivals, historic and cultural monuments, an exotic cuisine… all of which offers a unique experience.  We have introduced tour packages to this beautiful state that also features boat rides in the famous backwaters of Cochin.  For more information, please contact us. Details about the place can be viewed at http://summittoseatours.com/Kerala.html. You can read more about visiting Kerala in this recent article in the New York Times: http://travel.nytimes.com//2007/01/07/travel/07next.html



Sundarbans – the largest mangrove forest in the world: This year we are highlighting the Sunderbans ‘the beautiful forest’, the home of the famous Royal Bengal tigers.  A part of The National Park lies in the eastern part of India in the state of West Bengal and has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. We will be able to arrange customized trips to this National Park during January through March and again from October to December 2007. For more information, please contact us. A typical itinerary for this trek can be viewed at http://summittoseatours.com/sunderban.html



A trip to the source of the holiest river in India – the Ganga:  Ganga is not only deeply associated with Hindu mythology and religion, it’s also a cradle of the Indian civilization.  We have customized treks to the source of this great river at Gaumukh where the Gangotri glacier ends and the river springs from this glacial melt, merging with many other tributaries along the way down.  The trek up to Gaumukh (12,800 ft) is a relatively short and easy one of about 13 miles and is accessible to individuals from the age group of 8 to 65 years (or older, depending one one’s fitness level).  For the more adventurous trekker, the trip can be extended beyond Gaumukh across the Gangotri glacier to Tapovan (14,640 ft) where one may spend an evening as a guest of the hermits who spend several months every year living along the Amar Ganga tributary.  Truly an once–in-a-lifetime experience!  We customize these trips to the length of your vacation and your budget.  For more details, please visit http://summittoseatours.com/gangotri.html


  The beautiful Kumaon Himalayas: We have been offering packages for treks in the remote and beautiful region of the Kumaon Himalayas since the last 3 years.  We have two of the best treks in this region – the Milam glacier and the Pindari-Kafni glacier trek in our schedule. We will provide you with transportation, accommodation, food and other necessary equipment during the treks.  Arrangements for stay during the walk are generally in tents and we provide international quality tents. For more details on the routes, itinerary and package price, please visit http://summittoseatours.com/kumaon.html


  Coming programs in first half of 2007:  We have exciting treks coming up in the first half of 2007. The best time to trek the Himalayas is between the end of April till the middle of June.  The scheduled trek periods range from two to eight days, and more treks are planned as our schedule firms up. To see the dates of the scheduled treks, please visit http://summittoseatours.com/Programs.html

We look forward to helping you design your own dream trip or trek for this year.
