Kashmir 'Open for Business'
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office has advised, after 20 years, that once again Kashmir is ‘open for business'. Kashmir has been partitioned between India and Pakistan since 1947, to the satisfaction of neither country nor the Kashmiris themselves. Since 2011 confidence in visiting this region has grown and a record 1.1m tourists (mainly Indian) have visited last year alone.
As always, KE is giving you the opportunity to go on an adventure to this exotic region. We have a new cycling holiday in our 2013 Brochure. Over a total of 16 days, cycling for 9 of them and covering 281 miles, this classic Himalayan journey will take you to the remote northern district of Kashmir.
Staying in the ‘legendary' houseboats on Dal Lake for the last 2 days, you will have time to reflect on the cliff-side monasteries, the high passes of Fotu La (4108m) and Zoji La that offer spectacular ascents and descents, old market towns and glaciers that you have had the privilege of experiencing!
A mountain bike with semi-slick tyres, a good level of stamina and fitness and a sense of adventure are required for this cycling holiday. There will be a support vehicle and KE Leader always available.
Not on our website YET but featured in our 2013 Brochure and with dates available in August and September 2013, you can book now.
