The Himalayas have long captured the human imagination, weaving their way into myth, legend and adventure and playing a role in religion, festival and ritual. Within this colossal mountain range are the world’s highest peaks – there are over 100 mountains that top 7,200 metres, including the mighty Everest at 8,848 metres. But it’s not just about the geography; the Himalaya also offer a human story, where monasteries teeter on high passes, hidden valleys are farmed and lived in, and local people perform old rituals long lost in the lowlands. You can experience the natural magnificence and fascinating humanity of the Himalaya on tours to India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet each offering a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience, and sights that will take your breath away.
