Village walks, Kumaon

As visitors, we rarely get a chance to immerse ourselves into the unfettered lives of villagers. The serenity of field work, chatting by streams and participating in weddings rife with culture, all seem just out of our reach in our daily, urban lives. At Kumaon however, you can explore villages of Ruskin Bond-esque quality; weaving through forests that fringe the communities or taking a dip in a stream that runs through it.
