Trekking Trekking and more Trekking
All of the schools that are available to teach at are located many kilometers away from society. In order to have a real experience, you must trek to get there. In most locations, there is no other option. The shortest option to arrive at your school will be a 1 day trek (5+ hours), but we recommend a 3 to 4 day trek, which will include treks of more than 6 hours per day. Treks may include steep inclines and declines, large stone steps or logs to walk over, and it could rain for days on end. You will pass countless waterfalls, observe the local culture, and if it is not too cloudy you will see some of the largest mountains in the world.
The difficulties of trekking are real, but the benefits of overcoming these challenges are far more valuable than any challenge you might face. There may be leaches, twisted ankles, and perhaps some negative attitudes that you encounter on the way. On the other side of the coin, there will absolutely be beauty within the mountains, the trees, the flora and fauna and the animals that you pass on your trek. The majority of the people you will meet have made the decision to go on the same trek you have for a reason, most of the time it is inspiration. The personalities and enthusiasm of many of these people will stay with you forever.
Challenge your body and awaken your soul…allow the trek to get you places you have only dreamed of.
