An 11 day challenge beginning in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan Community are situated - the heart of the world’s highest mountain range.
There is time to spend in this fascinating town before setting off on foot to explore the stunning region. A 5 day trek will take you through the Kingdom of Gaddi – a semi-nomadic race who spend months wandering the high passes with their cattle. With spectacular views of the Daula Dhar Mountain Range, journey through rhododendron forests, passing through Hindu settlements and Buddhist Monasteries.
To end the challenge, there is some free time to explore the incomparable Taj Mahal – one of the world’s greatest monuments to love ever built, and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World!
