When one teaches two learn
In today’s day and age, learning is no more restricted to the campus but the world has become a classroom. Beyond Himalayas have curated a fine range of educational tours and student exchange programs in Ladakh that bring you closer to indigenous Himalayan communities. We organize school trips to Ladakh interested in integrated mountain development research studies or one week long geological and geographical mountain excursions to the Himalayas. From farm projects for individual students to living like a local, engaging in fieldwork or community research program on different environmental, social and economic aspects of the tribes, we at Beyond Himalayas have a range of exchange opportunities for learning in Ladakh.
Our programs and projects are executed with the help of different local organizations working on the development of Ladakh, Himalayas (SECMOL, Women’s alliance, LEDeG, LEHO, LAMO, LOTI) and associations that work for sustainable development of Ladakh. We have collaborated with most of the governmental and non-governmental institutes, societies, field action projects, panchayats (village governing bodies), LAHDC (Leh and Kargil), monasteries and schools for our programs to assure diverse research perspectives on Ladakh. The educational tours in Ladakh have a host of volunteers working in different capacities to explore experiences and expand the learnings from Ladakh.
