Escapade of a Lifetime


Not much things happen every now and then. Some things are meant to happen once in a life time. If you are a true adventurous person then you ought to hike these places at least once in your life time.

Mount Everest. The big E for any adventure fan. Travelling to Mount Everest’s foot also means a lot. It takes on altogether a special feel when around this gigantic terrain. Go after the footsteps of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay through the village of Namche Bazaar and the frosty valley of Khunde. For an infamous view of Everest on the southwest fold of Mt Pumori, climb the Kala Pattar. You will be overwhelmed by the Khumbu icefall. It marks the South Col which is the route filled with rebellious climbers.

Go for the Middle Eastern terrains. Struggle and survive through the harsh dessert, open valley and landscape on the back side of Petra. The Bedouin camp provides you delicious meal featuring of kebabs, hummus, olives and pita breads. They don’t have 5 star comfy beds, but some tribal rugs and overstuffed pillows. What can one expect while camping? Try the lost city of Arab, Ubar. Considered to be, once upon a time, blessed with immense Frankincense, Ubar was the richest cities in the Arabian lands. However, the trip launch is bizarre here with some exotic Muscat.

Back to Asia; walk on the path of ancient trading route. Explore the silk road of China, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan with almost nomadic people that will guide you. Have vodka shots at the Shepherd’s camp on the icy Song Kol Lake. Spend the sleep over with a shared tent. Also get assisted by an eagle hunter on the coast of Lake Issyk Kol. When on a run, try tasting China’s food right from Beijing specialities to Shanghai specialities. They have the Peking duck in the capital, Sichuan hot pot in Chengdu, and lamp skewers roasted over coals at Xian’s Muslim quarter market in the evening.

The one time capital of British Raj, Kolkata, kicks off a unique journey through the state of Orissa. It is a dwelling of many mountain temples amongst which is the 13 century sandstone Sun temple. Make a journey through the best rumble of two cultures, Myanmar and Bhutan. You will get to experience the traditional ceremonies like lamp lighting ceremony at Shwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar and the colourful masked dance of Bhutan’s Thimphu Tshechu festivals.

Become Indian Jones and mark the journey traces of Beijing Kalgan Urga trail. This was used for centuries by camel caravans between China and Mongolia.
