MISSION & VISION
To give a voice of hope, love, strife and strength to the writers of the Himalayan terrain, especially Kumaon. Himalayan Echoes also aims to inculcate reading, writing and oratory skills in the hill folk as well as people in other parts of India, through various initiatives in the fields of art, culture and literature.
A unique confluence of words and powerful ideas in a most scenic setting, Himalayan Echoes: Kumaon Festival of Literature & Arts, brings together award-winning writers from India and across the world, as well as a distinct local flavour with established and fresh voices from Uttarakhand.
Unlike other such events, the festival is defined as much by the strength of its voices as with the intimate size of its gathering and the magical charm of its setting. It offers an opportunity to learn and enjoy one-to-one interactions with authors and experts in the fields of ecology, socio-cultural studies, art, music, cinema, sport and wildlife.
