    Description
    Think of the Himalayas and youll inevitably think of Mount Everest. But theres so much more to see in this picturesque country than just the mother of all mountains. Across the mountain ranges in India, theres a whole different world waiting to be explored under your hiking boots. Hike among tiny villages, walk through remote valleys and marvel at isolated Buddhist monasteries high up in the cliffs. Even though you havent left India, trekking through this unique tapestry of colours and cultures will make you feel that youve been transported to another world.
