(A) Himalayan Mountain Range View, Uttarakhand India November 2013

Kumaon is one of the hill regions in the northern state of Uttarakhand, in the Central Himalayas. The placements in Kumaon are with locally based NGOs, which are very active in a wide range of areas. Travel to these placements will involve an overnight train journey from Delhi, followed by a two to three hour drive in the hills. This page also lists opportunities for field- and research-based opportunities with CEDAR, which is headquartered in Dehra Dun, the capital of Uttarakhand, but with projects that might involve work in the Kumaon hill region.
