Experiencing life like the locals, we pick tea leaves on a Sri Lankan plantation; venture into one of the world’s largest cave systems in Vietnam; walk with the Igorot in Philippines, where coffins hang off the cliffs.

In Laos, embark on a deeply reflective journey through the Plain of Jars, and meet survivors of the world’s most bombed nation.  Trek through giant cedars in Akita Japan, and follow the ancient path used by Samurais, and encounter the elusive Matagi hunters.This is Asia by foot. Join us and Walk This Way.
