HIMALAYAN MOUNTAIN SOJOURNS are holiday camp organizers on the slopes of mountains that surround the famous tourist place of Manali in Himachal Pradesh. Usually people choose a long itinerary thinking to make the maximum of their leisure but, in the end they are left with complete exhaustion and homesickness. We do not propose our guests to visit many places in a short period of time making their holidays tiresome. We have designed some special packages for those who want to use their vacation exploring the ways of nature and thus discover that eternal bliss scattered free on the slopes of Himalayas for which you grope in the darks of a bright city. The campsite high on the mountain would have a pleasant outlook over the valley down. Enough to change the outlook on life.
HIMALAYAN MOUNTAIN SOJOURNS is a solace, a pleasure, and a playground for you. For us this is a livelihood for lifetime. Let us work together to know more of nature.

About the Marketing Head
In the year 2001, Pooja Nathwani embarked into the field of education with a commitment to contribute and give something meaningful back to the society in a profession that she was really passionate about, making a difference and inspirational at work. Not the one to be deterred by obstacles, driven by her enthusiasm and spirit for learning, she earned several degrees in Ecced, M.com, M.ed, Masters in English(Linguistics),English from Trinity (London)and finally P.hd.
Practicing what she preaches, she further immersed herself into years of hands on research and experience, heading renowned preschools, discovering alternate techniques to enhance her craft.
Being an avid traveller, her quest to explore new places permitted her to visit several preschools across the globe straddling different places in India like Kerela, Manali, Rishikesh, Mysore, Dharamshala and places outside India like London, Scotland, Paris, Bali, Malaysia, Dubai, Mauritius, Singapore, Thailand and Bhutan..She has also mastered the art of yoga namely Hatha, Ashtanga, yin yang, and so on. Her quest to dive deeper into yoga and spirituality took her to the remote places in the Himalayas where she meditates, treks and disconnects from the world thrice in a year. Rolling into the laps of mother nature is the best way to rejuvenate and prepare oneself for the upcoming years of one’s life. During her visit to these schools she realised what nature can teach books can’t.
Being a teacher all her life, a solo traveller and interacting with children, has allowed her to come to a conclusion that it is very important for every human being to spend some time with our very own Mother Nature. Trekking isn’t just about getting out into the woods, it is about learning how to deal with different situations and adapting to them. She wants every child to participate whole heartedly in the trekking campaigns to our very own Himalayas. This is where they learn early some valuable life lessons.
