The open cockpit air safari was thrilling! As we soared in the air, the mountains and valleys appeared like a tilt-shift model. Rishikesh looked beautiful in the low light of evening. The river was speckled with countless diyas. Watching the aarti from the air was a wonderful experience. We biked through dense forests to a little known mountain top above the village of Thano. The vistas from here were mesmerizing.
This journey takes us through the remote countryside of Uttarakhand, to a mountain top above the village of Thano. We will ride our mountain bikes for a 13 km stretch through dense forests, past postcard perfect villages and terraced fields. The open cockpit air safari will offer breathtaking bird's eye views of the hills and valleys below. The temple town of Rishikesh comes alive below, orange tongues of flames light up the Ganges, the ghats are crowded and little boats bob in the water. The view is one you will never forget.
