Dharamsala is situated in the Northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It lies on a spur of the Dhauladhar range in the Pir Panjal region of the Outer Himalayas; and commands majestic views of the mighty Dhauladhar ranges above, and the Kangra Valley below. Dhauladhar means “white ridge” and this breathtaking, snow-capped range rises out of the Kangra Valley to a height of 5,200 meters (17,000 feet).
The Kangra Valley is a wide, fertile plain, crisscrossed by low hills. Our challenge begins in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan Community are situated, at the heart of the world’s highest mountain range. We have time to spend in this fascinating town in the mountains before we set off on foot, to explore this stunning region. Our 5 day trek takes us through the Kingdom of Gaddi – a semi nomadic race who spends months wandering the high passes with their cattle. With spectacular views of the Dhauladhar Mountain Range, this gem of challenge events takes us through rhododendron forests, passing through Hindu settlements and Buddhist Monasteries. To end this most amazing challenge, we have some free time to explore the incomparable Taj Mahal – one of the world’s greatest monuments to love ever built, and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World.
