On Top of the World
Trekking the HimalayasWithChris Walker 
 A guide for preparation
 
Why Visit Nepal?
 Nepal is one of the most unique and diverse countries on earth.From land areas below sea level to 8 of the highest 13 mountainson earth, Nepal is truly a mirror of cultural diversity. As mountain people adapt to the altitudes, their religions, beliefs and lifestylesare vastly different to those in the valleys who face differentchallenges.But the most astonishing thing about Nepal is its quiet dominanceof more sacred and spiritual sites than any other country on earth.From Buddhas birth place, Shiva’s birth place, home of hundredsof Buddhist monasteries, one of the most sacred Hindu sites onearth and an array of sacred mountains respected by nearly allfaiths, Nepal is a powerful spiritual source for the world.As you trek her mountains, your life changes. Thousand year oldmani walls of carved rock, chant “Om mani Padme Hum” a call for 
love and peace – prayer ags adorn every home, mountain, bridge
or stupa along the way, each one embossed with those same words,
and chanting them each time the wind aps the ags. Tradition has
it, that every prayer you pray, in some of these more sacred sights,
is magnied by the thousand and in some special places, like
Boudha, in Katmandu, millions.It’s not for the faint hearted. But for those who live life as anexperience, and who choose to get past the intellectual blockadesof western thinking, here in Nepal, the ego falls away with everystep, and to your life there will be added a certain richness, anawareness, that will never fade.
Our Mission
Chris Walker’s treks into the Himalaya of Nepal, have three coreobjectives.
1/ To experience the magnicence of the highest place on earth, a
heart opening, transforming experience.2/ To enjoy the physical challenge of trekking up to nearly 6,000meters above sea level while maintaining high levels of safety and personal comfort.3/ To experience and learn from the sacred cultures, places and people of the Himalaya home to Sherpa and Tibetan Buddhist nunsand monks alike.
Respect
We are committed to the deepest respect for the cultures,environments and traditions of the Sherpa communities that inhabitthese mountains. We are mindful about our trekking methods, our 
impact on the sustainable of the resources and the signicance of 
 places of prayer and ritual.This said, the form of Buddhism practiced by Sherpa people inthis area of the Himalaya is an open hearted, fun and welcomingreligion. Under most circumstances photography is welcomed.This respect also extends to the way we dress. Huge amounts of  bare skin can be embarrassing for the monks and nuns.
 
Bookings
Private trips to Nepal can be arranged at any time. You can simply book single person trips or 2 or more people. You’ll need 2 weeks
solid time from start to nish ex Katmandu.
Private groups of one, two or three people work with Chris todesign their own itinerary and program schedule during the monthsof November and December or May and June.During June - July - the Dumji festival is held in the highHimalaya. This is an amazing opportunity to witness one of themost beautiful traditional festivals where Tibetans, Sherpa and Nepali people gather to bring in the summer crops.Fixed programs are more rare. These programs are pre arrangedand you can join these as an individual.http://homepage.mac.com/innerwealth/PhotoAlbum14.htmlYou can book your own guided trek with Chris at http://www.walkinspired.comThe costs involved in creating your own small group trek are basedon one or 8 people, ex Katmandu and 14 days in the mountains.Included are trek permits, and all board and lodging.
