Why India should be top of your 2020 trekking list
05 November 2019
From the madness of Delhi, to the beauty and tranquility of the Himalayan mountains, the India Dalai Lama Trek offers the perfect introduction to the very best of India. Below you'll find the TOP FIVE reasons for throwing caution to the wind and joining Team Action Cancer for the greatest adventure of your life!
1. STUNNING SCENERY
First up - this Trek offers absolutely STUNNING scenery. You'll discover the stupendous beauty of the Himalayas. Frolicking through alpine meadows in the shadow of snow-capped peaks, you'll experience the true splendour of Mother Nature.
2. EXPANDED HORIZONS
In the process of challenging your physical limits, you will inevitably discover that you are capable of so much more than you ever thought possible. It's unfeasible to experience India and return home the same person as when you left. This Trek will change you. For the better.
3. HEART-WARMING HOSPITALITY
There's a saying in India, 'Athithi Devo Bhava', which means 'The guest is God'. Indians consider it a huge honour to have guests in their home. On this Trek, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy tea with the locals in the middle of the Himalayas, you'll be treated to storytelling around the campfire and you'll discover that there is nothing quite like Indian hospitality.
4. HANG WITH HIS HOLINESS
The Dalai Lama is the head of Tibetan Buddhism. Having fled Chinese oppression in 1959, the Dalai Lama set up home in Dharamsala which is the starting point for this Trek. You'll have the opportunity to explore this fascinating little market town and soak up all the peace and love vibes emanating from His Holiness, the Dalai Lama.
5. HELP FOLK FROM NORTHERN IRELAND
The money raised by this Trek is used to deliver Action Cancer's services which have a hugely positive impact on local people. We are so grateful to our Trekkers, for without their fundraising efforts we wouldn't be able to save and support as many people as we do.
