Guildford Travel Club Presents

Travels in the North-East Frontier Agency of India

7th February 2017

Alan Palmer

Alan Palmer, who first presented for the Club in 2015 about his 30 years’ trekking in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, has lately focused his travels upon the rarely-visited corner of North-East India. During two seasons, Alan twice crossed the mountainous, Buddhist and tribal regions of Arunachal Pradesh (inadvertently almost straying into Bhutan), traversed the Hindu-dominated plains of northern Assam, and then sought out traditional, head-hunter villages in Nagaland (accidentally crossing into Myanmar). His talk will focus upon the remarkable ethnic and cultural diversity of the people he met.

Alan is author of “Moroccan Atlas – The Trekking Guide” and a contributor to both “Pakistan” and “The Silk Road”. In 2012 he formed his own company, Yak Travel, organising fully personalised treks and 4x4 tours for individuals and small groups in both Morocco and North-East India.
