Sunshine Himalayan Adventures

Himachal Pradesh, Ladakh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim & Nepal

For over two decades Sunshine Himalayan Adventures (SHA) has been organising treks and tours in the Himalayas across Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Ladakh and Sikkim in India and in Nepal. Considering their base is in Himachal’s Kullu, the outfit is better known for the tours offered here and in the Greater Himalayan National Park (GHNP). 

The tours are varied, with birding and wildlife tours and treks being the most sought after. Like many Himalayan trekking outfits SHA too offers the popular treks like Markha Valley, Chadar Trek, Everest Base Camp trek etc. It is in the wildlife and birding tours that an outfit’s expertise and resources becomes especially important. Which is why SHA’s wildlife tracking tours like Snow Leopard trek, Himalayan Brown Bear trek and Western Tragopan tour and longer birding tours like the North India Birding tour stand out.

The outfit offers fixed departure tours, customised tours and corporate and school tours.

Price: From Rs 3,000 per day per head for all-inclusive tours to Rs 7,000 per day per head for international expedetions (tours are typically at least for 5 days).
