Location and Introduction to the expedition route:

Public Health and Anthropology Expedition July 10 - July 30, 2016
Travel is to the Inner and Greater Himalayan region of North India. This journey takes us from the plains of India to Kullu and Manali, a region known as the ‘Valley of the Gods’. Our team will visit several monasteries and sites in and around Kullu district and trek over a 10,000 foot pass into the greater Himalayas. Travelling further west, we will visit Dharamsala and Mcleodganj (7,000 ft,) home to exiled Tibetans and their religious leader His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet, Tenzin Gyatso.

A 7-day public and primary health camp at Tibetan settlements and schools provides a hands-on clinical experience to the participants while educating local residents the importance of oral hygiene, balanced diet and disease prevention. ‘Preventive Health’ sessions will be held at local monastic schools, a nunnery and the Tibetan settlements of ‘Bir’..

This is a high altitude expedition in a rugged Trans-Himalayan region. Clinic and field camp elevations range between 5,000 feet - 6,500 feet with a higher pass crossing. There is ample time built in to the itinerary to acclimate but, as a participant, you must be in good health and willing to work in improvised clinic and field campsites.
