What we do

SPECIALISTS IN MOROCCO AND NORTH-EAST INDIA

Small group and bespoke treks and tours

IF WE HAVEN’T DONE IT OURSELVES, WE DON’T OFFER IT.

We lead exciting and challenging 4×4 tours and treks on foot for small groups through some of the most unexplored regions of Morocco and North-East India.

We are currently expanding our destinations to include Nepal from  2019 and Benin from 2020.

Our itineraries are designed for spirited adventurers wishing to explore beyond regular tourist destinations genuinely getting below the surface of our four destination countries.

MOROCCO

We organise fully personalised, tailor-made treks throughout Morocco, with accommodation as required, for individuals and groups, large and small, of all aptitudes, abilities and experiences. Whether you wish to visit the High Atlas Mountains and climb Jebel Toubkal (4168m), the highest mountain in  North Africa, or perhaps Ighil Mgoun (4068m), or to trek through  the Western High Atlas Mountains, across Jebel Sahro or even Jebel Sirwa (3305m) we listen closely to your wishes and help them to come true. We can recommend routes to you, of course, but we have no fixed programmes: we will discuss a wide range of possibilities with you but always encourage you to make the final choice of when and where you go, and for how long.

We also offer Moroccan Atlas Talks and Presentations built upon a wealth of personal experience in Morocco.

Our specialist trekking regions:

 

NORTH-EAST INDIA 

  • trek at altitude through the foothills of the Eastern Himalaya, visiting remote yak herders’ summer pastures close to the Bhutanese border
  • experience the world of Tibetan Buddhism, of prayer flags, gompas and chortens, drink salted butter tea with monks and nuns, and visit Tawang Monastery, the largest Buddhist monastery outside Tibet
  • participate in authentic, donyi polo, animist village festivals
  • explore the exceptional tribal districts of central Arunachal Pradesh, with options to hike into the jungle-clad hills and take refreshments with locals in hidden villages
  • traverse the plains of northern Assam, visiting ancient Hindu palaces and temples
  • lodge overnight in wildlife sanctuaries in search of the endangered one-horned rhino, the state animal of Assam, or the even rarer Hornbill, the state bird of Arunachal Pradesh, whether in jeeps, on elephant back or on foot
  • sail across the mighty Brahmaputra River alongside locals conducting their daily business, and visit magical Majuli Island, the world’s largest inhabited river island, its exceptional blend of traditional tribal life interspersed with unique Hindu satras
  • venture into unspoiled areas of Nagaland, seeking out remote Konyak, Ao and Angami tribe villages, meet the tattooed warriors, headhunters from a nearly by-gone age, and even step across the Indian border into Myanmar (Burma)
  • visit the most hard-fought battle grounds of World War Two and the cemetery at Kohima itself, today immaculately maintained by the British War Graves Commission
  • enjoy the colourful display and traditional dances of the tribes of North-East India at the exotic annual Hornbill Festival.

NEPAL

Trek with us through stunning Himalayan landscape to Everest Base Camp (5380m) and then onwards to Kala Patthar (5545m) for some of the very best views of the summit of Everest itself (8848m), the world’s highest mountain.

Of course, there is even more to our Everest Base Camp trek than this: experience memorable encounters with native Sherpa families; enjoy the floral and faunal biodiversity of the trail, passing through magnificent rhododendron forests, magnolia and firs; wind through Buddhist hamlets, adorned with engraved mani walls and fluttering prayer flags; visit sacred monasteries steeped in history; experience an genuinely unforgettable spiritual journey.
