Dear Friends

It's been quite a while since our newsletter ... we hope you have had an adventurous year to date. 

It's coming to that time of the year where almost everybody will be taking a holiday and so we like to invite you to join one of our adventures.  Be it a scheduled departure or a customised trip with your preferred travel dates with your travel kakis, we'll be happy to organize them for you. 

We hope you can just take 2 minutes to read this newsletter and check out our website for the detailed trip info if you're interested !

Introduction To High Altitude Trekking (ITHAT) - 10D Nepal Poon Hill (4-13 Dec 2013)

This program is specially designed for all budding hikers aka full of aspirations but clueless on how to fulfill them ...

We understand the apprehensions felt by the novice trekker in planning a mountain holiday. How fit should I be? What kind of training must I do? What gear will I need? 

For a start, we will hold a workshop with you to let you have a better understanding of the demands and specifics of high altitude hiking. We will then conduct 6 physical conditioning sessions to show you how to get into shape, and round it off with a final pre-trip briefing to ensure that you are fully equipped, physically and mentally for your inaugural trekking trip.

A scenic and enjoyable trekking holiday through the magnificent mountainscapes of the Annapurna region of Nepal will be your reward for almost 3 months of preparation. The highlight of your trip will be watching the sun lighting up the sky for the first time from atop Poon Hill, and gazing out at the jagged pinnacles of the surrounding Himalayan range, an unforgettable experience !

We are certain that this will be the beginning of a lifelong love affair with trekking holidays.
