Langmale Kharka (4400m)
It is a short trekking day to Langmale Kharka to aid acclimatisation,we take in the impressive mountain scenery found in this area.Great rock walls tower above as we make our way through the enormous U-shaped valley. Snowy peaks are the stunning backdrop to this valley often referred to as the Yosemite of the Himalaya, and it is a magnificent place to spend a well deserved rest day.

Happy World Physical Activity Day!  and Sneak it In Week!

Quote for the Day

The simplest secret of reaching any place is to start walking! If people say you can’t reach there, close your ears to them and continue walking!

Did You Know?

Electric power load-shedding is a way of life in Nepal and power outages can last for up to 16 hours a day. People usually have schedules of when the power is going to go off so they can plan around it.

Find Your Fit Fact

To get people more physically active during the workday, ParticipACTION is promoting Sneak It In Week during the week of April 7th.

It’s easy to participate.  Wear sneakers to work.  Walk to lunch.  Park a few blocks away. Hit the pavement on your coffee break.  As long as your heart beats faster for 10 minutes, it really counts!  You’ll see how easy it can be to fit in more activity during your workday. So get active and sneak it in.  You’ll be rewarded with a longer, happier, more fulfilling life! We invite you to participate in this fun and worthwhile initiative!  Tools and resources are available on the Sneak It In website.

Activity Suggestion: Follow the Leader

It is important to be listening and following what your head expedition leader is saying to insure the safety of the entire team. This warm up will get students aware of their surroundings and listening to their group members.

Have a student volunteer to be the expedition leader. This student will be the leader and the rest of the class will follow them. The leader can do any kind of movement that they wish, some movements including running, hopping, crawling, rolling, etc., and the entire class must follow. Switch up the expedition leader after every couple minutes.
