** ICONIC TOUR DU MONT BLANC TREK + SWITZERLAND! **

Changi Airport Terminal 1

EVENT FULLY BOOKED! ******************************** This is AWESOME! Seven Valleys, 71 Glaciers, 400 summits… The spectacular Mont-Blanc Alps is fascinatingly beautiful, like a diamond, viewed even from different angles. Not sure what's this trek all about? Check out this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJ3cYHIElOM This is the full Classic Tour du Mont Blanc trek that we'll be doing and not the partial 6 Day tourist trail that do not include many scenic lookout points. So come, join us on this Alpine trek with a breath-taking display of summits and glaciers everywhere ! From Courmayeur to the Chamonix valley, from la Fenêtre d’Arpette to the wild Val Ferret, the trails meander along the Swiss, Italian and French mountain Alps and valleys, through lust green pastures, over mountain & valleys, below tumbling glaciers and imposing peaks. The Mont-Blanc range is inhabited by warm friendly people, hardy to mountain life, keeping pastoral farming and local mountain traditions alive. This is an enormous playground of untamed natural wilderness waiting to be discovered. The good news is that we'll be doing the original breathtaking Tour du Mont Blanc trail that covers almost 90% of the entire circuit instead of the short 6 Day tourist trail that covers only certain sections of it. This classic original trail although longer will take you to most of the scenic lookout points, valleys, farms, lush green pastures, blue glaciers, lakes and streams etc. that should not be missed. With careful planning, we are able to do this TMB Trek in 7 days instead of 10 as we'll be omitting some 'not so scenic' trails that will take 2 to 3 days of walk or hike. We will spend the extra days saved instead to explore the charming Chamonix French Village as well as a whole day visiting the beautiful attractions around the Geneva Lake District (Switzerland). EVENT HIGHLIGHTS: * Chance to trek on the full Classic Tour du Mont-Blanc's (TMB) trail (Highly recommended by locals & most trekking companies) * 1 day to explore the charming French Village of Chamonix * 2 days to enjoy the beautiful attractions In Geneva (Switzerland) * Get close to the fabulous display of the majestic Alps and glaciers * Enjoy the cool mountain air and freshness with lovely postcard sceneries * Avoid the peak July/ early Aug summer season crowd of hikers * Enjoy a more serene "off the beaten track" mountain trekking experience * See beautiful alpine mountain flowers blooming in early autumn * Be inspired by 3 awesome alps ie. the French/ Swiss & Italian Alps in just one trip * Get to see cattle, sheep, horses & meet local dairy farmers at work in their farms and mountain lodges * Picnic beside tranquil lakes, on-rushing rivers, waterfalls, valleys, streams, lush green meadows etc * And more!

**9D Awesome Nepal (Beginners Trek) - Para-Gliding/ Hot-Spring & more!

** RECOMMENDED: Best NEPAL Introductory Trek for Beginners. If traveling is your passion, if exploring is your hobby, if adventure is your love and you are dedicated to your passion, then without a second thought just add the beauty of this land to your bucket list of places to visit while you can. Come Sep 2019 during the school holidays, Team TLC will embark on yet another breathtaking adventure to the awesome mountain trails of Nepal! We've been organizing and bringing groups to Nepal every year with a 100% safety record as we have our own TLC Team of Licensed Trekking Guides, porters, chefs etc. In 2015 after the major earthquake, TLC sent the largest trekking group (36pax) to set foot on the mountains of Nepal as well as organized a Trek for Nepal charity event with World Vision to send aid to those who were most affected. While the country is still seeking to rebuild, to stand on its feet again and show the world the resilience and character of its people, TLC encourages its members to be a part of this re-building process which is still ongoing, to help its economy and to bring cheer and smiles to the many who have lost their homes and some ... sadly their loved ones. Last year in 5 separate treks to Nepal, Team TLC with our fun-loving courageous adventurers, had one of the most awesome, breath-taking and inspiring trips there. It was indeed a mammoth logistical task as we hired 10 Guides, 20 Porters, 3 Cooks and our own medical team with a comfortable 36 seater coach for our TLC members instead of squeezing into a mini-van with other strangers for the long ride to the mountains. Yes, let's head to the Top of the World to admire, marvel and experience the awesome Himalayan Mountain Ranges! We're talking of snow-capped peaks, alpine forests, tranquil mountain villages, natural hot springs, caves, waterfalls and on-rushing rivers. This time we're taking you to view the Annapurna Mountain Ranges including the scenic Poon Hill Trek because of its diversity, abundant wild-flowers and captivating views of the Himalayan mountain ranges. The main highlight of this trip planned specially for first timers to Nepal is an early morning trek to Poon Hill to catch the spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas. The views stretch as far as the eye can see - north towards Tibet, west towards the Dhaulagiri Himal, and east towards the Annapurna Himalayas. The small mountain villages have friendly inhabitants and provide a wealth of impressive accommodations in their local teahouses. These teahouses also serve food and refreshments to passing trekkers during the day. Yes, the Annapurna Region with Poon Hill & Ghorepani provides the world's best treks in terms of scenery and diversity of terrain. Considered to be the best introduction to altitude trekking for beginner hikers, this trail offers spectacular views for nature lovers and scenic trekkers especially for those who are thinking of doing the ABC or Everest trek one day. With its diverse terrain, mountain hot springs, and rich local culture, the trek provides a splendid glimpse into the serene and secluded world of the Himalayas. During the trek, you'll experience a wild spectrum of cultures, alpine pastures, forests, waterfalls, hot springs, glaciers, Tibetan settlements, apple orchards, lakes and the mammoth Annapurna Massif catching the magnificent views from different angles. Besides trekking, your 9D itinerary also includes a chance to chill-out and try a Jeep through the mountains, taking cool baths at the various waterfalls, crystal clear lakes, ancient temples, exploring the city of Pokhara & Kathmandu etc. Yes .. they are all included in your itinerary! And if you're game, how about trying para-gliding etc (optional) at the top of the world! *********************************************** Members comment: "My 4th trip to Nepal and I must say this is definitely the most scenic trek that I've done having joined various Meetup Groups. The team spirit is awesome. The Event Hosts & guides were helpful and caring and we had great views of the Annapurna mountain ranges right in front of our rooms!" Alvin “ Being a first time trekker to Nepal, David Lim, the organiser of the TLC has been very helpful and resourceful in planning the entire itinerary, with provision of sufficient experienced trekker guides to ensure that none of the slower trekkers were left behind the trail. Throughout the trip, he made sure that our meals and accommodation were well-taken care of. The trip was well planned with trekking, sightseeing and some shopping. I enjoyed the entire trip very much and would highly recommend to all interested hikers and trekkers who might want to join the adventure trips in the future organised by TLC. Thank you David for making my this trekking trip a memorable one. ” — Sharon Tay on Oct 3, 2017. ********************************************** RSVP (Expression of interest) is Open Now!
