Choose your own adventure at the World Expeditions Himalaya information night
Have you ever pictured yourself scaling the ancient peaks of the mighty Himalaya like a boss? Adventure is out there, dear readers, but sometimes it can fall by the wayside when the practicalities set in. Planning the itinerary, knowing where to go and learning how to maximise your time overseas is a pretty daunting task, especially when you want to do it all. Combining inspiration with knowledge is the Himalaya information night at World Expeditions, a free session on Wednesday February 1 aimed at uncovering the best ways for budding explorers to carve their own path.
If you’ve ever entertained the thought of heading to India and Nepal to climb some serious summits, the World Expeditions Himalaya information night is sure to seal the deal for you. Leading the session is none other than legendary Lonely Planet author Garry Weare, noted badass and a leader of the pack when it comes to the fine art of globetrotting. The World Expeditions team has been working with Garry for more than 40 years to pioneer adventure travel to the Himalaya, drawing upon his real world travel experiences to help present options and information to hopeful trekkers in the most engaging way possible.
Some use the term ‘wrote the book’ to big-note their credentials in a certain field, but when it comes to the Himalaya, Garry literally wrote the book – he’s up to his fifth edition of the Lonely Planet guide to trekking in the Indian Himalaya, as well as his standalone effort A Long Walk in the Himalaya. Garry’s talk will transport you from the source of the Ganges to Kashmir, through ancient foot trails and to remote villages set beneath an awesome backdrop of soaring Himalayan peaks. For those who aren’t too keen on the idea of a trip that spans multiple months, don’t fret – the talk also covers options for more short-term treks that are still packed with all of the good stuff.
