With every trek, you will walk through the expansive Himalayan highlands immersed in its dominance, its hues and its cold dryness; you will walk through vast alpine meadows where blue sheep trot and yaks forage; you will walk through dense sweet smelling orchards of seasoned fruits; you will walk through the life and lifestyle of the native villages; you will walk though the rich Tibetan culture; you will walk through the soul of the Himalayas.
