 October 28 — November 11, 2017  
Gujarat is a hidden gem of India, where almost no foreign tourists go. This is the homeland of probably the most famous Indian in the world — Mahatma Gandhi and also the current Prime-Minister of India — Narendra Modi. This is the land where the civilization flourished for more than 5000 years. The land where Krishna used to rule, where the most ancient and magnificent temples of Somnath and Dwarakadish attract pilgrims even today. The largest salt desert in the world, The Great Rann of Kutch, is located here as well. There are austere mosques, white marshmallow Jain temples and fascinating step-wells with bás-relief covered galleries vanishing in the distance. Asiatic lions, crocodiles, wild donkeys and blackbucks. Bright coloured textiles and heavy embroidery of the Kutch tribes. These are two unforgettable weeks in the land of miracles!

--- Play hide-and-seek, frighten the bats and watch the details of the bas-reliefs in the passageways of Gujarati baoli-step wells in Ahmedabad, Patan and Junagadh.
--- Enjoy tribal dance at the Great Rann of Kutch.
--- Climb the sacred mountain of Jains along with hundreds of pilgrims in Palitana.
--- Drive the empty roads of the ex-Portugese colony Diu on a scooter and swim in the Arabian Sea.

 November 25 — December 9, 2017

We’ll go to the farthest North-East of India — the land between Bhutan, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh. We’ll see 3 out of 7 ‘sister’-states located here — Assam, Nagaland and Meghalaya.

—Tribes with strict patriarchy and matriarchy living side by side.
—Rhinos emerging out of the fog just before the dawn and birds soaring above the Brahmaputra waters at the sunset.
—Tea from famous Assam tea plantations — the most favourite of the British settlers.
—Bloody tantric cults of Shakti and music&theatre worship at the satra-monasteries.
—Living root bridges and the largest river island in the world.

trip → Expedition into the hidden world. The Spiti Valley 2017

spiti2016_1
Only for jeep-safari lovers ☺

Delhi — Shimla — Sarahan — Kalpa — Nako — Tabo — Dhankar Gompa — Key Gompa — Komik — Chandratal Lake — Vashisht — Naggar — Delhi

 July 1 — 15, 2017  

End of the world. Spiti Valley, together with Ladakh, was once a part of Tibet but now it remains mainly beyond the reaches of a tourist map. This incredibly beautiful region with extremely harsh nature is cut off from civilization by snow which blocks the roads for most of the year. There is no airport here, only bad roads with mountain passes of over 4000 m.

The moon like landscapes. The naked mountains are devoid of refreshing green cover of trees, and because of this ‘nakedness’ the layers making the earth’s crust become visible — they are all broken, smashed, and pushed up while these mountains were created. One can feel with their skin, on a physical level, the energy and the might of the Earth.

Here and there the eyes can find tiny blocks of simple white washed houses, which constitute a harmonious part of the landscape. They are like tiny bread crumbs on a tablecloth of mountain slopes — so easy to just shake them off…

Russian spiritual seeker and painter, Nicolas Roerich, was passing through these lands during a horse expeditions he organized in the search of mystic Shambala. Having visited this region one realizes why the mountains are of violet and blue color on his paintings.

Dalai-Lama has said that it’s here where he is going to retire one day — far from the vanities of the world. Having visited this region one realizes what he means by ‘far from the vanities of the world’.

1000 years ago when Buddhism was persecuted by the authorities in Tibet, it was here where Rinchen Zangpo — the Great Translator of the buddhist texts into Tibetan — spread his teachings. This was where he founded many monasteries and was born to a new incarnation and nowadays he is the head of the Key Monastery.
