St. Gemmas Trek-India-East-Leeds-MagOur newest challenge, Trek India, we explore northern India from the foothills of the Himalayas down to Agra and the Taj Mahal.

This incredible trek begins in Dharamsala, where the Dalai Lama and the centre of the Tibetan Community are situated. Then we pass through the Kingdom of Gaddi – home to a a semi nomadic race who spend months wandering the high passes with their cattle.

We will be passing through Hindu settlements and Buddhist Monasteries, rhododendron forests and mystical mountain views. To end this incredible experience, 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.
