Everest Base Camp

Thank you for the best experience of my life. I couldn't fault anything on the trek and I had a ball. Our crew lead by Bir Sing were always smiling and helpful and this is what made the experience so great.

I never thought I'd laugh so and much and the bond that formed in such a short time between the crew and trekkers grew stronger everyday so much so that some of us didn't want to leave - it was hard to say goodbye.

Assam, Nagaland & The Hornbill Festival

Assam and Nagaland are amongst the least explored destinations in India. On this journey we discover the highlights of Assam and explore the unique culture of Nagaland. We explore the tribal villages and tea gardens, take an elephant safari to view the one horned rhino and a boat cruise on the Brahmaputra River to Majuli Island, the largest inhabited river island in the world, where we visit famous Hindu monasteries. We then cross into the forbidden Nagaland where we encounter traditional Naga tribes. The highlight of our journey is our time spent at the Hornbill Festival where we witness the traditional dance and songs of the colourful Naga communities. There are great photographic opportunities on this journey as we immerse ourselves in a little known culture dating back to the early 13th Century when the Ahom Kings travelled from Thailand through northern Myanmar to settle in Assam.
