On this journey you will explore, on foot, this beautiful country and its religions, cultures and magnificent scenery. This insightful trip, led by trip scholars Professor Mike Searle and Professor David Gellner, includes walking tours and treks that take in medieval cities, historic hill resorts and off-the-beaten-track Tibetan villages. This is a country where people from different religious backgrounds, castes and cultures live together in peace and harmony. You will learn how the Himalayas were created and how they have provided a home to such a huge diversity of different cultures, as well as two major world religions.
