Leaving for our first trek!

Jullay from Ladakh!

We are so thrilled to finally be here together. We just finished an informative and restful orientation at the Nyanjan Guesthouse in Phyang, a village about forty minutes from the main town, Leh. We got to know each other better, set goals and intentions for the weeks to come and stood in awe watching as the sun coloured the mountains a thousand different colours.

We leave for our first trek tomorrow morning! This first trek we do is called a homestay trek and we will walk from village to village and sleep in guesthouses or homestays at night. We will take a bus from Leh to our trail head just outside a village named Thiksey. From there we will hike through the beautiful villages of Yangthang, Uley, Hemis Shukpachan, Ang and Tia.

Our group will send updates when we can, but we’ll be sure to post photos and reflections when we return!

We hope you are all well and we are sending you all love.
