Northern Escapes was established by a group of like-minded people who deeply cherished the natural heritage, culture, religion and traditions of the land. All of them are well aware of the boundless bounty of nature have endowed the Himalayas with and how the same is vital for the survival of locals.  

Headed by travel photo journalist Gaurav Schimar (www.gauravschimar.com), Northern Escapes is synonymous with ecologically responsible tourism in the Himalayas aimed at benefitting the locals while preserving the fragile environment of this Himalayan and Trans-Himalayan kingdom.

Northern Escapes (initially Ladakh Eco Trips) started with its operations in Ladakh. The trips in Ladakh offered an unparalleled experience to the lucky travelers who found themselves in the hands of an experienced team, exploring the land, staying with locals, walking on the frozen Zanskar River or pedaling through its foaming waters in summers. Many travellers wanted to witness the never seen before wildlife and we started arranging wildlife tours. As a result many were able to capture the magnificence of the native animals of Zanskar including the majestic snow leopard, the rare ibex and the elusive wolf…  Later, the ecologically sensitive model was replicated in other places and operations were expanded into Kashmir, Himachal, Spiti, Kumaon, Garhwal and Nepal.
