About the himalayas

The mighty Himalayas rise beyond the Indo-Gangetic plain of Northern Pakistan, extending through the Northwest and Northeast Indian states, Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan. This entire range of the Himalayan Mountains is home to more than 50 million people.

The range has many of Earth’s highest peaks, including Mount Everest, at the border between Nepal and China. The Himalayas include over fifty mountains exceeding 7,200 m (23,600 ft) in elevation, including ten 8,000-metre peaks. 

About the Himalayan communities

In the Himalayas, one would be surprised to see that each distinct community and valley has its own socio-cultural methods to face the varied challenges of life. They little contact with the rest of the world population, and yet demonstrate great resourcefulness and resilience.

the himalayas journey

Border Mission serves poor communities in the Himalayan regions through education, medical and community care outreach. 

We travel on rugged terrains on the highlands from 2,500m-4,500m to reach the most isolated villages in the Himalayan countries. We have reached:

  1. The last villages located in the Himalaya bordering regions
  2. The highest villages (4,500m elevation) living at -30°C weather conditions
  3. The most inaccessible villages by helicopter, mountain flights, days of jeep on road, donkeys and foot on challenging terrains
  4. The treacherous Himalayan airports
  5. The highest lakes in the world.
