Good to go
Whoever would have thought the summer of 2016-17 would turn into such a wash out. I thought about bailing on more than one occasion but settled instead for a spot of scheming about exciting places along the rim of the Indian Subcontinent. We found a sweet little trip on India’s far north eastern frontier, finalised the plan for the trip to Pakistan’s northwest frontier and confirmed the details for the trip into India’s Himachal Pradesh and the journey to Mt Kailash and beyond in Tibet.
If you were tempted by the preamble in our November newsletter now’s the time to grab a spot. Places are limited and these trips are good to go.
