From the busy streets and historic sites of Delhi, to the scenic vistas, ancient temples and local culture of the Himalayas, India offers photographic experiences like no other. Our Photography Tours are not technical workshops but travel opportunities for you to see and capture the spirit of the place.
Our Photography Tours combine the itinerary and experiences of our Cultural Heritage Tours, with added opportunity given to guests to explore the culture, places and people from a photographer’s point of view. However, the pace is more relaxed to suit the tour - we give you more time in the field to work on your photography while enjoying nature. Guests are often out with the sunrise as well as sunset to take pictures in the soft low light, and take midday breaks when the light is harsh. Whether it be flora and fauna, breathtaking landscapes, historical sites or the people of India…for every photographer, from novice to pro…the opportunity for the perfect shot lies in all directions. Outings and treks are planned with extra thought given to times and subject for photography.
Our Photography Tours will be joined by a locally renowned photographer, who will accompany guests on a treks and day trips, giving instruction, hints and suggestions for the ultimate in photography experience and results. Our Photography Tours, synonymous with photo travel, guided photography tours, photography vacations and holidays, are not technical workshops but travel opportunities designed for you to put into practice what you've learned in workshops or books. (Will include a shopping stop at a Delhi photography supply shop on day 2, to pick up any needed supplies).
Although the focus is on photography, we are very aware that it is also your holiday. Because of this, we always stay at the best available hotels, provide you with high quality meals, and do our utmost to make the trip as enjoyable for you as we possibly can.
HOW THIS HOLIDAY MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Through tourism, education, advocacy, and stewardship Dunagiri Retreat’s goal is to preserve, promote and support preservation of the culture, history and natural resources that contribute to the community identity, depth and character of the Dunagiri region.
The mission of Dunagiri Tours is to provide opportunities for our guests to experience the local culture, to present them the chance to make lasting connections with places and people they meet along the way, and to offer them the utmost in hospitality. Part of our mission is also to offer opportunities for guests to give back as they travel, either by treading lightly, or through contributing to the natural environment and/or local communities in the Dunagiri area. Your visit will help us tremendously in addressing the livelihood issues of the local community – from generating employment for the local community to a local market for organic farm produce. Part of proceeds from this tour will be contributed to charities and Non-Governmental Organizations working closely with the community you will visit.
