  During this leg of the journey, the group will split in two. Half will proceed on the jeep safari as indicated in the itinerary below and half will take the same tour in reverse. For those seeking a more vigorous adventure, the alternate option is four days and three nights of trekking. Nutritious food will be amply provided while traveling in the mountain zones, but only what is fresh and locally available will be prepared.  The sumptuous hotel buffets that you have become accustomed to are not practical due to the rugged nature of this portion of the trip.  As we will be ascending to high altitudes, we recommend that smokers cut back  before this time and that everyone limit their alcohol intake and drink plenty of liquids while in the Himalayas.
