In a weeks time, we'll gather here in Delhi to meet with the Indian Mountaineering Foundation and begin our journey into India's Garwhal Himalaya. The Garwhal Himalaya aren't a popular destination compared to other locales in the Himalaya, perhaps due to how remote and wild they are. So, for a few weeks, we'll be away from the wired world.
Where is the Garwhal?
The Garwhal Himalaya is located in the Indian Himalaya, on China's Tibetan border. See the map below to orient yourself. This expedition is the first of a series in the region, exploring alpine peaks and climbing aesthetic routes.

Wish us good weather..
