Exploring and Fishing in the Himalaya Foothills.
The following is an example of a recent tour which can be arranged for our guests (current conditions will apply and may determine accessibility).
Our tour started 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 spent three days trekking from Billing to the beautiful Barot Valley; a stunning walk through the Foothills of the Himalaya until we got to the glacial fed rivers winding through the Barot valley. Two days were 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 was enhanced by a stop at the Taragarh Palace for lunch, before continuing to Basunti. At Basunti we had 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 got to fish for Mahseer and Bullseye Snakeheads, both superb fighting fish.
The guide for this tour was 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.
Similar tours, pending current conditions, can be arranged for our guests (minimum 6 people in a group).
