We have Earth’s Edge back again and this time they’re talking about one of their more accessible treks. This trek requires a moderate level of fitness and is a perfect introduction into multi-day trekking.
About the Himalayas Trek
The 13-day expedition includes six days of trekking the Indian Himalayas in warm weather, with amazing scenery and plenty of time to completely immerse yourself in Indian culture. On this trek you have the opportunity to practice yoga, preparing your mind and body for the journey. You may also join our talented cooks in the kitchen tent to learn how to cook authentic North Indian cuisine.
Each day on the trek offers a new and exciting perspective as we pass through some beautiful hamlets, flower-filled pastures, mixed forest, waterfalls and streams. One of the highlights of this route is reaching the Kuari Pass (3,840m)- where we will be rewarded by what is said to be the “Best mountain vista in the Himalayas”.
Our trek takes place near the source of the Ganges, a river with vast religious and cultural significance in India. Bathing in its waters is said to wash away not just physical impurities but symbolic ones as well. We can put this theory to the test when we go white-water rafting! We also have time to explore Rishikesh, renowned as a centre for studying yoga and meditation. It is to this “Yoga Capital of the World” that the Beatles travelled in 1968 leading to one of their most productive periods. It is also now a modern hub of amazing adventure sports.
You will get the opportunity to meet plenty of friendly locals and learn about Himalayan culture throughout the trip as you pass villages and animal herders in nearly every valley.
This trip takes place every October, so the festival season is in full swing and the country is brimming with activity! Diwali (the Hindu festival of light) is India’s biggest and most important holiday celebrating the victory of good over evil and light over darkness, and you get to experience that in the stunning surroundings of the Himalayas.
