A new bridge for a new year - Zanskar twig bridge finished!

2014 has got off to a great start at Mountain Kingdoms - our twig bridge project in Zanskar is complete!

Over the past 5 years Mountain Kingdoms MD Steve Berry has raised £3000 to restore a traditional twig bridge in Padum and preserve an ancient culture. The project was overseen by the local King Punchok Dawa.

Zanskar is a small Tibetan Buddhist kingdom located in Ladakh, north west Indian Himalaya, and locked away from the outside world by snowed-up passes for all but a few months in the summer. Work has taken place on the bridge in winter when the river below is frozen and conditions can reach -30oC.

Now completed, it is an extraordinary structure which can be used by locals and trekkers alike. The twig bridge will form part of a new Mountain Kingdoms trek in Zanskar in September 2014. Kingdom of Zanskar Trek

North India floods – Oxfam appeal

Extreme weather conditions in Uttarakand, India, disrupted our Operations Manager, Niki Morgan's recent recconaissance trek to the Kuari Pass. Early monsoon rains, thought to be the heaviest in 80 years, have caused mass flooding in northern India. The torrential rain has damaged roads and homes, and triggered landslides. Aware of the devastation this has caused to those caught in the floods, Mountain Kingdoms is donating £500 to Oxfam's India flood relief appeal. Oxfam is providing humanitarian assistance to some of the worst affected.
