Everest Base Camp

Thank you for the best experience of my life. I couldn't fault anything on the trek and I had a ball. Our crew lead by Bir Sing were always smiling and helpful and this is what made the experience so great.

I never thought I'd laugh so and much and the bond that formed in such a short time between the crew and trekkers grew stronger everyday so much so that some of us didn't want to leave - it was hard to say goodbye.

Jhamtse Gatsal Children's Community Indian Himalaya Challenge

If you've been fortunate enough to watch 'Tashi and the Monk', then you'll know about Jhamtse Gatsal, the incredible community, school and home that has been created in northeast India for 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent. The children in the community are those in greatest need from nearby villages. They all come from impoverished families, they may be orphans, and they are typically malnourished and neglected. Each one has a background of adversity. The goal of Jhamtse Gatsal is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential and to become good human beings. The founder, and former Buddhist Monk Lobsang Phunksok, who trained under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, has instilled in the teachers, amalas and children the three pillars of intelligent mind, kind heart and healthy body and these values permeate their learning and life. This is a truly unique opportunity to raise funds for the education and care of these children, and to stay in their community and work alongside them to build new residences for the students and teachers. The experience is combined with a wildlife safari and some wonderful sightseeing to discover the beautiful landscapes and rich culture of this unique, ethnically Tibetan, region of India.
