Trekking in the Himalaya and the rest of the world – key information, tips and ideas for group and independent trekking

Saturday 18th 11.30-13.00

The Himalaya have always fed the dreams and called to those who love wild places. Stretching from Pakistan through Northern India, Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.

The Himalaya offer an unparalleled wealth of landscapes and trekking opportunities.

Himalayan trekking and logistics are very different, so our panel of experts will be happy to discuss ideas and options, including the issues of food, tea houses and lodges versus camping, altitude, fitness, gear and permits, from their own extensive experience.
