Road Trip to the Forbidden Land
May 28th- June 6th, 2009

Road Trip to the Forbidden Land

Road Trip to the Forbidden Land

78mm Adventures is gearing up to take you into the forbidden lands for 10 days on one road trip.
In some of the most challenging conditions for life, discovering new dimensions of India with self indulging camping & cooking – and support. Shooting photons of our experience.

Sharing an open minded quest for sustainable lifestyle alternatives, amidst the unchartered Himalayas of Kinnaur, Lahaul & Spiti.

The Ride throughout the event will be about 5-6 hours daily. This leaves us with good amount of time to curl up in the lap of nature and for exploratory excursions.

We will sprinkle the trip with activities like rappelling, rock climbing, trekking, folk dance etc. for the overall experience. We will be escorted by a very able and willing crew in jeeps who will prepare the sites for us in anticipation of us. There will also be a van traveling as the last man following behind us with a Doctor, a Mechanic, extra supplies, fuel et al. (Yeah.. we are folks with a plan!) All meals are included. Everything that will be needed for the journey, including permits for the areas we visit, breakfast, lunch and dinner (non-veg and veg), homemade juices (kiwi, plum, apples) and basics will be in tow in our trusty li’l van!
