One of the treks I did in the Himalayas
I traveled for days up here with a group of 5 Belgian ballet dancers. It was amazing! Going up was super hard work and some of the steps cut into the rock were like they were made for giant's boots. My knees ached for weeks afterwards. We slept in all sorts of strange places, the worst being an isolated mountain village where we got cocky and drank the water and got soooo sick because when we checked the water tank there were turds and dead animals floating around in it. We had put iodine and water purifying tablets in but it didn't make much difference. The views were the best in the world. At one part we stayed with Tibetan Buddhist monks. They taught us mantra and meditation and we taught them breakdancing. Funny! No wonder they call parts of Kullu where I started from 'Valley of the Gods'.
