Pangi (Greater Himalayas)
Rugged and remote Pangi lies sandwiched between the two towering Himalayan mountain ranges of Zanskar and Pir Panjal. A challenging, vehicular road takes us over the famous Rohtang Pass (13,200 feet) into Lahaul valley and, further, to the thickly forested and isolated valley of Pangi. This 4 week medical & dental expedition offers a rare opportunity to trek through a lesser-known region of the Western Himalayas. Our team will hold clinics in several villages and settlements while experiencing the land and culture that few have had the privilege to witness.

During this 4-week travel, our team will hold clincis in remote villages, Tibetan settlements, monasteries, monastic schools and a nunnery located in the Dhauladhar (White Mountain) Range of the Western Himalayas. Daily work schedule includes seven hours of clinical and preventive health care during which participating health care workers and students work under the supervision of US-based and board certified physicians to provide care and educate patients on issues related to personal and oral hygiene, diet and nutrition. Free medicines and supplies are provided to hundreds of patients of all ages. Five to six out-patient stations will be set up and teams will be rotated periodically to allow each team member to gain a supervised hands-on clinical experience in all available specialties. Each station will have one interpreter. Patients with serious ailments that require follow-ups will be referred to the closest state hospital.
