If you want to exploring the off-beaten paths of Himalayas, or taste the risk of inaccessibility and thrill of driving through the cold deserts and valley areas of the Himalayas. Usually people have a misconception that Himalayan region is suitable only for those who like to trek or climb the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas. But there is a very unique thrill in Jeep Safari, especially for those who want to travel through the lesser known, not the well-known, destinations. Jeep Safari also gives a humane touch to the adventure, as you get to explore the places, which may be even unknown to the locals.
Jeep Safari in Uttaranchal
The state of Uttaranchal is divided into two regions - Kumaon & Garhwal. Both of these regions fascinate all the tourists. The best way to reach the exotic locales of the state is a jeep safari. You won't like to get into any other adventurous mold here. Jeep safaris in Himalayan range are particularly very popular among the adventure sport lovers.
Jeep Safari In Tibet
As Tibet is located on a high altitude plateau area, it's very difficult to access it easily. You may have to to travel on certain un-mettled stretches also. So, the best way to travel in these remote areas is to travel through a strong vehicle like Jeep. That's why Jeep Safaris here offer a good opportunity for you to visit the monasteries and lakes located in the high reaches of Tibetan Himalayas.
