This September, experience a unique apple harvesting trail in the upper Tons Valley of Uttarakhand! The months of August & September are peak apple harvest seasons in the mountains. The apple orchards are laden heavy with fruit. It is a magical time to experience this and definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience to pluck and eat apples straight from the tree! Our local partner for this experience is Tons Trails. On this trip, we will meet and interact with local farmers and learn the entire life cycle of an apple orchard. We will also visit the Tons Valley apple processing centre to see how apples are graded, sorted and packed for transport. Through the experience, all our meals will be home-cooked local food that features summer-special veggies and produce grown locally and organically in the upper Tons Valley. What's more? We will also experience a baking session with apples. On the first and the last day, we will explore the city of Dehradun and the hill station Mussoorie!
