HIMALAYAN ADVENTURE. August/September 2017
EXPERIENCE THE REAL ADVENTURE
Here is one of the Great, unknown trecks of India, representing Himalayan grandness. It is virtually unexplored. Perhaps, in its secretiveness lies its profound beauty. Within this treck, we recieve splendid, majestic views of the Himalayan mountain range, passing through both rural and tribal areas, sacred lakes, and quaint Hindu villages embedded deep within the valley. Waterfalls are abundant. Camp sites intimately line green, fresh grass and blue streams. As we descend, we wind through acres of green meadows and rows of fragrant pine trees. On the higher slopes, we weave through fields of snow, glaciers and ice falls. The thrill of high altitude is intoxicating.
IF YOU DESIRE, THERE WILL BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN A MEDITATION ON THE WAY. THIS WILL HELP YOU TO REBUILD YOUR IMMUNITY TO STRESS, DEEPEN YOUR STATE OF RELAXATION AND CREATIVE THINKING.
