Infinity Adventure November 2 to 10
* As soon as I hear from you, I’ll personally contact you to share more information that will get you over-the-top excited about the incredible time you’ll have on this adventure!
Would you like to join me on a spectacular, one-of-a-kind “bucket-list” adventure to my favorite place on earth?
Come spend 7 days adventuring with 12-14 people, trekking through the most magical region of the Himalayas in Nepal.
Not only will we be living a one-of-kind experience, seeing the most spectacular scenery (and special culture) in one of the best-kept secret locations in Nepal, I will also be sharing my entire wealth of knowledge about nutrition, exercise, and an array of little-known essentials for the truly healthy way of life.
You see, there is a little-known phenomenon that occurs in the Himalayas that is totally magical and makes it unlike any other place on earth. It refreshes your life-perspective, recharges your mental and spiritual batteries, and teaches you things about your life that words can’t. It’s the perfect environment for really focusing on your holistic health and well-being. Also the energy is really great in a small group like this; it’s a chance to really go deep in terms of a life-shift with other like-minded people.
Along with me and group will be two other guides and a team of porters to carry your belongings. This will provide the opportunity for you to enjoy the journey at a pace that’s suitable for you. (You will only carry your daypack with your daily water, snacks, and extra layers for any changes in weather).
During the 7 days in the mountains, our accommodations will be what we refer to as “tea houses.” They are simple but clean and provide comfortable rooms, running water, and a heated group commons area for dining and hanging out with your Infinity tribe.
Just imagine yourself waking up each day sunrise beaming over the Himalayas, followed by trekking through the most spectacular scenery (and special culture) in the world. Then relaxing at the end of the day with feet up to relish in the day’s experience and share stories with your fellow Infinity adventurers – with of course a cup of hot Infinity Chai in hand.
For living the life of becoming your greatest (and living your longest), adventure in the great outdoors is a vital part! The simple fact is, what it does for the mind and body is unlike anything else making it utterly invaluable. So the question is, are you ready for the experience of a lifetime?

I am excited that we will be trekking through some of the most spectacular terrain in the world. This region that is rich with Nepali culture is also famed for being very special with the friendliness and hospitality of the small villages where we will be spending the night. The terrain is ‘hiker friendly’ as we will be following a well-travelled route used for hundreds of years. While I am confident that I will provide you a safe experience, I’d like for you to know that both myself and the guides have medical training.
