DIVISION OF LE PASSAGE TO INDIA TOURS & TRAVELS PVT. LTD.
Season’s Greetings!!

Join me in this celebration that I live everyday, a unification of colours, a veneration of decades old rituals and customs and a unique zest that thrives in the people’s heart to keep them together… this is ‘India’.

Bringing together these vivid colours of this incredible land through our newsletter, we feature in this edition the valley of flowers of the east – ‘Yumthang valley’ of Sikkim; the architectural richness of Lepakshi, a small town in Andhra Pradesh near Bangalore and the bliss of camping in the haven of Ladakh’s quaint Lake town of Tso Moriri.

Festivities are a vital part of Indian culture and so is the festival of ‘Teej’ that brings the women folk together to celebrate the harvest time, featured in the Festival Update. Do read about India’s therapy to healthy life ‘Laughter Yoga’ and ‘Spiced Lemonade’, the perfect way to keep the heat away and stay fit.

Hope you enjoy reading this newsletter. Your feedbacks and suggestions are welcome and so is criticism that can help us improve, so do keep writing into us, we love to hear from you!!

Have an incredible week ahead!

Warm Regards
