and Introduction to the expedition route:
KAIS & DHARAMSALA June
19- July 9, 2014
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.
Our team will participate in a 7-day public health awareness camp, educating young students and residents on issues related to 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'.
