Explorations

Himalayan Treks, India

Admired by the young and old, trekking is the best option to explore the most remote nook and corners of the Indian highlands! It is a spellbinding experience to stand atop a pass and looking down at two valleys completely different and yet so similar or to cross small villages where people still live with no electricity, roads or telephones and where children come running towards you greeting “Namaste!”. It is an unforgettable event to walk through a mountain shepherd’s barn and his flock of hundreds of sheep and goats grazing on the lush green meadows. It is an occurrence of being spiritually touched while visiting monasteries in the harsh environment of Ladakh or simply getting awed by some of the most fascinating views of the mighty Himalayas.
