For a gardener there is nothing quite like seeing plants in the wild. I have had the opportunity to travel a great deal and my favorite trips have always been the ones where you get out in nature and see  plants in their natural habitat.The Himalayas have always been a draw for me not just because of the richness of plant material in these regions but for its natural beauty. The stunning mountains to the rivers, lakes, and waterfalls—nothing quite compares. Combine all that with the culture of the area for a once in a lifetime adventure.
