It takes a certain amount of madness to do this – travelling through unfamiliar terrain, and driving on a highway billed as one of the ‘world’s deadliest roads’. The district of Kinnaur is a land of mountain villages with slate-roofed temples, vast apple orchards, plunging gorges between towering snow-capped peaks, and hair-raising roads – which has now become famous for holi more than apples. The festival of colours is celebrated with pomp and shows where the entire village gathers together to celebrate and eat.
Join us on an immersive journey of culture and celebrations this Holi.
