OVERLAND DRIVE TO TAKE YOUR MIND, BODY AND SOUL AWAY FROM IT ALL

If you perceive driving on remote village roads, stopping by the quaint tea stall, interacting with locals, staring at jaw dropping landscape and out-of-the-world views of the snow capped mountains as a gateway to look within, reflect on life and grow, then this overland drive is a dream come true.

Located in Kumaon region of Uttarakhand, this drive not only reaches the gorgeous dead-end Munsiyari, but offers short sections of off-road driving as we aim to reach a few supremely remote and nondescript mountain villages.
