Residential Project and Adventurous Journey for Gold Participants
6th - 22nd June 2014: Spiti, Northern Himalayas, India

Gold Award Participants from the globe are welcome to apply for the two-weeks Solar Conservation Project at Monastery, Spiti. Organised by Ecosphere in collaboration with IAYP India, the project is one of its kind, combining an Adventurous Journey and Gold Residential Project exclusively for Gold Award Participants. This project will provide an interesting insight into Spitian life, culture and Buddhist heritage and an opportunity to be a part of the environment preservation initiative taken by the community. During this journey the Award Participants will be assisting the local community in the construction of a Solar bath/Greenhouse. The volunteers will participate in the actual construction of the Solar Bath and the setup of a Solar Water Geyser (Evacuated Tube Condenser) or a Greenhouse and will be assisted by a dedicated team with a qualified mason and representative from Ecosphere. The activity will entail physical work. The construction period will be 7 to 8 days. The trip combines work and pleasure. During this trip the Award Participants will also be visiting some of the highest villages in the world, going on a high-altitude trek, visiting some ancient monasteries dating back to over a 1000 years and taking a yak/horse safari and mountain bike if interested. Traditional homestays further enrich the experience by giving an authentic understanding of the life and culture in a Spitian home. More information can be download from here or you can write to
