its independent past,

a flavor all it's own.
There is no place on earth like India and no two places are the same.
From high alpine meadows, to tropical rain forests, combined with the sheer size,
the diversity is staggering. It is difficult even to find an adequate metaphor
for this mystical and wild, yet delicate country.
India is a prayer flag, snapping in the mountain wind.
The birthplace of Buddhism and Hinduism,
there is an inexpressibly spiritual quality to this country.
A quality you can see in the magnificent architecture
of the countless temples, gompas, and mosques.

mountain breezes of Ladakh and Darjeeling,
and something that glimmers in the eyes
of every saffron robed Buddhist Lama,
and devoted Hindu Pilgrim.

in exile of the Dalai Lama,
or to follow the holy Ganges
to the sea, or whether you are searching
for Nirvana, or Moksha,
or just passing through,

on a summer evening.

and the people
are all unique,
and can teach
each of us something

of an ocean can take our breath away,
watching the crimson light swathe over
the holy Ganges river,
can leave one shuddering.
India is a star, twinkling in the black night.
India is heavenly, is something to wish upon.
India is a dream that we can reach for you.

most scenic and remote,
remote, and rewarding
in the Himalaya.
Treks can be as
short as three days,
but trips of a week or more are significanly more rewarding.

never completely melts,
and gray rivers have
worked steep canyons like
crow’s feet into the rocky earth.
Treks here lead through
alpine meadows and over
spectacular high passes,
and all trekking here is highlighted
by the colorful Ladakhi people.
Derived from sanskrit, ‘Sikkim’means crested,
and scarcely an inch of this country is flat.

are countless turquoise lakes,
and pristine Buddhist monasteries,
making the uphill more than worthwhile.
Treks here can be as little four days,
and up to two weeks for the adventurers.

and spectacular walks,
from short excursions around Darjeeling,
to wild adventures in the remote valleys of Zanskar.

Buddhist temples and colorful festivals.

to Ladakh to watch the fluidity of the
hypnotic mask and sword dances.
