Travel to the Himalayas with Greaves for an exciting time
This exciting Himayalan journey by Greaves explores the tiny north-eastern state of Sikkim, otherwise known as ‘The Garden State’, on account of its spectacular flora and fauna and abundant flower nurseries. Boasting a plethora of monasteries and exceptional mountain scenery, this beautiful state of India is inhabited predominantly by gentle Buddhists and small settlements of tribal people.
Discover Darjeeling – a popular summer destination
Just over the border is Darjeeling, in the heart of the tea growing country, which is now, as always, a popular summer holiday destination. Combined with a few days of exploring the sites of the often misunderstood but fascinating city of Kolkata (Calcutta), this well-rounded tour offers a great insight into Himalayan, Buddhist and city life in the north-east.
