Wed, 22 Mar 2017, 12:00 PM – Sun, 26 Mar 2017, 12:00 PM IST
Join artists in residence Kate O'Grady and Jenny Smy for a week of painting, hiking and relaxation in the Indian Himalayas.
Stay in the comfort and tranquility of Himalayan Orchard, where alongside farming activities, there is good quality farm-stay accommodation for visitors who are sensitive to and appreciate the peace of this traditional hill community and the beauty of the surrounding natural area. The farm is located in an area peculiarly rich in flora and fauna, at the limit of the orchard belt stretching up from the river below, with protected deodar forests stretching above it to rocky mountain peaks beyond, and beyond that lie more or less virgin protected open forests stretching to the glaciers in the far distance.
Hiking and visits to local villages and temples are included. If a taxi is required there will be a small additional fee.
Five days / four nights, on a sharing basis, all meals and airport transfers from Chandigarh included.
An equipped studio is available free of charge. Painting materials, paper, brushes, etc. are available at reasonable rates.
Help with travel arrangements, longer stays, excursions etc. can be provided.
