|Is this something you
The expedition is not an ordinary tourist trek which you can
buy from any European travel agent. You buy your part of the
expedition directly from us organisers, who among ourselves
have extensive experience
| of mountaineering, travel
and living in this particular region of Himalaya. The
three of us also accompany the expedition throughout.
We do have an itinerary and a selection of planned activities.
But based on the individuals actually joining the expedition,
we will adjust the programme to make it just as adventurous
as the group requires. Added to this is that we travel
in a land that doesn’t necessarily adjust to our
schedules and fixed arrangements; it will be part of the
adventure to change our plans if local uncontrollable
conditions so force us.
|Not a Sunday afternoon walk
Some parts of the expedition will be demanding, physically as
well as mentally. You should come prepared to experience some
hardship along the way, that is the nature of adventure in this
part of the world. But it is all within the limits of what an
average, normally fit person can well manage.
can do it
The expedition is an opportunity to get acquainted with an unusually
interesting and exotic culture, and an environment which does
not exist anywhere else in the world, and YES, you can do it!
The expedition applies a specific code of ethics with regard
to environmental, social and cultural conduct. No physical trace
of our trek is left behind, and the porters we employ are all
from the villages in the area, this way the money we pay for
wages will benefit the villages which we actually visit. The
wage levels are those specified by the local unions, and all
porters are properly equipped and insured. We also apply a code
of conduct with regard to cultural contacts and behaviour, aimed
at minimising any negative impact that the expedition might
have on local culture.
Participating in the expedition will cost you 1 950 Euro. This
includes all transportation, food, accommodation, camp facilities,
climbing gear, and climbing and trekking instruction, for the
entire period of 20 days from Delhi and back. All you need
to bring is your personal gear and clothing (see equipment list)
and pocket money. The price also includes a rock climbing instruction
session on Häggstaberget in Sweden provided by either Peter Bosma or Ingela
Nilsson, two top Swedish sport climbers. The price is based
on actual cost. You will, however, be invited to contribute
to the development process in Osla village.
