The Himalaya extend over 2500 km in east-west and between 250 to 425 km in north- south direction. The most extraordinary thing about Himalaya is the way they have been formed in three parallel ranges known as Great Himalaya, the Lesser or the Central Himalaya and the Outer or the Siwalik Himalayas. Commencing at Nanga Parbat in the north-west, these reanges pass through Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Garhwal, Kumaon, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh.
Once and independent West Tibetan Kingdom, Ladakh” the Land of Many Passes” is famous for its spectacular and well preserved Buddhist monasteries, starting with the stunning hour long flight over the Himalayas to Leh, the ancient capital of Ladakh and an important caravan stopover on the route to Central Asia, our journey ends two to three weeks later at the conclusion of our trek, In this time, we would have crossed some of the high passes, had views of the Karakoram and the Himalayas, visited secluded monasteries hidden in deep gorges and taken a jeep ride to the highest road pass in the world at over 5600 mts, with the recent opening up of many hitherto closed areas, it is now possible to travel to the fascinating Nubra Valley and visit the two lakes of Pangong Tso and Tsomoriri - amongst the biggest in Tibet.
The Garhwal and Kumaon regions in the eastern corner of India’s northern Himalayas, very close to the borders of Tibet and Nepal, contain some of the finest mountains of the Himalayas and yet this is an area surprisingly ignored by the western trekker. The high, pristine valleys of Kumaon have only been open of trekking since 1994 and Peak Adventures has taken some of the first people to explore this area after decades of isolation. The attraction of Garhwal and Kumaon lies in the fact that dense forest still cover the slopes and the trails offer outstanding views of high peaks like Nanda Devi from as close as 3 kms.
