About Our Offbeat Tours :

We strongly believe that true Himalayan exploration is incomplete if you have not walked along its trails. That's why every tour we offer includes both short and long walks – because we believe that without stepping into the heart of the Himalayas, the experience remains incomplete!

Most of the Himalayan tours tend to focus on popular and crowded locations, which may not be the ideal choice for a serene and immersive experience. Many travelers prefer to trek to get away from the crowd and in search of beautiful locales, though they may not necessarily be comfortable staying in tents and while using makeshift washrooms (toilet tents). 

At Foliage Outdoors, we have been promoting the concept that we call "Leisure Treks" which gives you all the satisfaction of long hikes in the mountains while staying in comfortable resorts. 

Leisure Treks (Hikes) = Leisure (Comfort) + Treks (Hikes)
Indulge in the best of both worlds – relish the stunning views and unique experiences that come with trekking, all while avoiding any hardships associated with the stay in tents. It's a perfect balance of adventure and comfort.

Our Leisure Hikes / Treks are designed for beginners and travelers who have no prior experience of trekking. Even children, as less as of 8 years old, could be a party to this wonderful holiday.
