3 It was a fantastic experience to be challenged both physically with the trek, and also by coming up with creative ways to fundraise for Marie Curie. It was all worth it in order to be able to trek for such a good cause. Frank Barrett, 2015 trekker Thinkstock Where your money goes pays for a Marie Curie Nurse to look after someone with a terminal illness overnight in their own home. pays for five people to attend day therapy at a Marie Curie Hospice, benefitting from gentle exercise, emotional support, and more. pays for someone to stay in a Marie Curie Hospice for 24 hours, so that they can receive the hands-on care they need in their final days.

4 Day 1 Depart UK Day 2 Delhi overnight train to Dharamsala Upon arrival in Delhi, we will be warmly greeted by our friendly local team who will drive us to the hotel to freshen up. We ll have a group meeting to discuss the tour and answer any questions you might have. Later this evening, we will transfer to the train station for our overnight journey by sleeper train, northwards towards the mighty Himalayas and the town of Pathankot. Paul McVicar/Marie Curie Day 3 Pathankot Dharamasala McLeod Ganj We will drive further into the winding countryside. We ll enjoy the dramatic scenery of Dharamsala before reaching the town of McLeod Ganj. This is the current site of the exiled Tibetan government which has been expelled from neighbouring China. We will check into our hotel before enjoying the town and its musicians, monasteries, monks and numerous colourful cafés and buildings. We will have some free time to acclimatise to the higher altitude here (2,000m) before enjoying a delicious dinner in a local restaurant. Day 4 McLeod Ganj Stowari Kareri 5 hours trekking We head out of town to the settlement of Stowari where we pick up the mountain trail which winds its way northwards through the hills. The first section is mostly downhill, along the valley to the local market bazaar of Ghera, before crossing the river and following the ridgeline through broken pine trees and scattered boulders. We will eventually break through the rhododendron forest into the village of Kareri, deep in the mountains with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. Here we will camp for the night and enjoy some rest and dinner. Day 5 Kareri Bal 5-6 hours trekking We follow the mountain trail through copses and over-bubbling streams, taking in the rugged scenery as we go, heading towards the settlement of Bal. We arrive in the afternoon at the campsite, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and a hearty dinner.

5 Day 6 Bal Triund 5 hours trekking Today we will trek towards the spectacular campsite at Triund, hidden away in the foothills. In the distance at times you can make out the mighty peaks of the Himalayas rising to the north, and to the south, the flat plains stretching southwards towards Delhi. We are likely to encounter some of the Gaddi shepherds in this region, descendants of the Rajput people who settled these mountains centuries ago. Today s trek will be around five hours of both uphill and downhill trekking, through very picturesque scenery. We will again spend the evening under canvas and enjoy dinner cooked by our local team. Day 7 Bal Indrahar Pass/Lahesh Cave 5 hours trekking We will trek towards the stunning Indrahar Pass this morning. Trekking through meadows and scattered oak trees, we will begin to climb upwards towards Lahesh Cave, a mighty overhang of granite rock which pierces the side of the mountain. We will set up camp close by in an alpine meadow at the foot of Indrahar Pass. We will walk an hour up a section of the pass to a lookout point which affords beautiful vistas in the surrounding hills, before we return to camp for dinner and a good night s sleep. Day 8 Lahesh Cave Dharamkot McLeod Ganj Pathankot 4 hours trekking We will pack up camp and trek along the mountain trail back towards Dharamkot. Our last day is spent ascending and descending through forest and broken terrain, which should take around four hours of steady trekking. We ll eventually arrive at around midday at the settlement of Dharamkot. Here our vehicles will collect us and drive us to the hotel in McLeod Ganj. Later today we will drive to the train station for our overnight journey to Delhi. Day 9 Delhi We will arrive in the city this morning and drive to our central hotel to freshen up. Together with our expert guide we will head out into the buzz of New and Old Delhi to learn about the city s astonishing markets, temples, shops and palaces. From the stunning mosque of Jama Masjid to Gandhi s memorial, there is so much to see in this wonderful capital. Tonight we will meet up for a special meal to celebrate our successful challenge and sample our final taste of Indian cuisine. Day 10 Delhi UK We will have some free time after breakfast to pick up some last minute souvenirs before we travel to the airport for the flight back to the UK.
