For girls only!

Go on a trekking expedition to the Himalayas

International Academy of Mountaineering and Allied Sports and Rotary Mysore Midtown Adventure Foundation will take a girls team for National Himalayan Trekking Expedition 2009 in Himachal Pradesh from May 2 to 20. Himachal Pradesh is considered the ultimate destination for adventure.

Follow the Saurkundi Pass Trail that covers the Kullu Valley. Base camp Babeli is known for its cool climate and pine trees, and River Beas flows right in front of it. At Doura, the summit camp, one can experience extremely cold nights. Longa Thatch and Lekhni offer beautiful meadows, wild flowers, ferns and a variety of birds.

The team will leave Mysore on May 2 to reach Manali on May 5, then visit Taj Mahal, Rohtang Pass and Vashist hot springs, apart from trying their hand at rock climbing, rappelling and paragliding at Solang Valley.

The expedition is open for those aged between 14 and 25. As only 10 can take part, registration will be on a first-come first-served basis. The last date to register is February 10.
