Participant Stories

..every step was worth it to experience such pristine, overwhelming beauty. Added to that, we had the pleasure to gift solar lanterns to each of the villagers at Sumda Chenmo, a village of six houses and a two-day walk from anywhere..

What impressed even more than the breathtaking backdrop of the Himalaya, the kindness and openness of its people, and the skill and energy of the GHE team – was the coming together of kindred spirits from across the world to connect, bond, and leave behind a positive legacy of their presence at Mahabodhi. Teamwork is what makes the dream work!

Michiel Roodenburg

Senior Associate KPMG Infrastructure Advisory | Co-Founder Cycle for Water
What I personally really like about GHE, is the fact it combines physical exercise with mental challenges, which are then wrapped in a lot of fun. As an Infrastructure professional, I am always looking to build bridges. It felt so fulfilling when we, as a team, were able to put something tangible on the ground; The E-Base. Yes, you will sweat. Yes, you will be in pain. Yes, you will smile!

Search Director, MediaCom New York
Those 5 days trekking and camping are some of the best days of my life.  It really gave me some time to step away from every day life and think about focusing on what's important, what I want out of life and how I can make more of a difference in the lives of others

Ongoing Initiatives

Third Pole E-Base

Built in the Mahabodhi School campus in Leh, the E-Base is a fully equipped digital classroom, connected to the outside world with Wimax. It's an initiative focused on helping the children of Ladakh take on the world.


Upcoming Initiatives

This August, the team of Global Himalayan Expedition is going to embark on a clean energy journey in an Electric Powered Vehicle (EPV). The journey would stretch from Delhi to Leh, passing through the beautiful valleys of Srinagar, and the treacherous passes of Zojila and Kargil
