All of us are quite familiar with trekking in the Himalayas. Walking across beautiful and serene trails, sipping a hot cup of tea at breathtakingly pristine campsites, oh! the pleasures of trekking.
Now, what if we told you that you could do something more than just trekking in the Himalayas?
We are talking about a RACE at 19,600 ft!
