Mcleod Ganj, Barot Valley, Basunti:
Trekking & Fishing in the Himalaya Foothills.
13 – 23 April, 2017.
Our tour starts in McLeod Ganj, home to the Tibetan government in exile and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. A chance to soak up the atmosphere of this bustling hill station, with its vibrant mix of Tibetan, Indian and Gaddi people. Colourful markets, temples and monasteries make this an exciting place to shop and explore.
We then spend three days trekking from Billing to the beautiful Barot Valley; a stunning walk through the Foothills of the Himalaya until we get to the glacial fed rivers winding through the Barot valley. Two days are spent walking beside the Uhl River, giving the anglers in the group an opportunity to catch some Wild Brown and Rainbow Trout.
A drive through the scenic Kangra Valley is enhanced by a stop at the Taragarh Palace for lunch, before continuing to Basunti. At Basunti you will have 3 days to relax by the pool, swim in the lake, go bird watching, explore by walking or canoe or even do some yoga. The anglers in the group will get to fish for Mahseer and Bullseye Snakeheads, both superb fighting fish.
The guide for this tour is Andy Trewin.
Our Guide: Andy Trewin had represented the UK in the European Fly Fishing Championships 1994-1997. He is a keen fisherman, tackling the rugged coastline of West Wales where he currently lives, casting a fly on Salmon and Trout rivers in other parts of the UK and fishing the lakes and rivers of Northern India. Not leaving any part of his fishing to chance, Andy designs and ties his own flies, makes up rigs he uses for sea fishing and collects his own fresh bait from the local beaches.
Andy spent the last 10 years participating in fly fishing competitions as well as attending as many sea fishing competitions as time allows. He enjoys teaching and passing on as much knowledge as he can.
