Day 01: Delhi - Thanedar

We begin our Adventure in the Himalayas with a scenic drive from Delhi to Thanedar, the first of our stops in this adventurous tour and the perfect spot to begin our holiday. Hidden far away from the city, the Banjara Orchard Retreat, our eco-resort in Thanedar, is the perfect antidote to a life in the city. Nestled amidst apple orchards, high up the hills (7700 ft. above sea level), surrounded by lush greenery, flowers in full bloom, and miles and miles of apple and cherry orchards, the Banjara Orchard Retreat offers the perfect retreat to rejuvenate from the pressures of fast living and regain our zest for life.

Thanedar, you will be interested to know, was the place where apple cultivation was first begun after Samuel Stokes, an American Missionary, planted the first Apple Orchard here.

Overnight in Thanedar

Day 02: Thanedar

After breakfast, we will visit the Paramjyoti Temple, a temple founded by the missionary Samuel Stokes. The temple has no idols or images and is devoted to the Universal God, the One who transcends all names, words and forms. Verses from the Bhagwad Gita adorn its walls. Later on, we will visit the Tani Jubbar Lake, a lake tiny in size but exquisite in beauty before returning to the resort.
