IT LOOKS JUST LIKE OLD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHS. Seeing a long horse caravan snaking through the beautiful wilderness of a mountain landscape, a reincarnation of travels of yore, as practiced by early twentieth century explorers such as botanist Joseph Rock, Tibetologist Jacques Bacot, or Louis Liotard he unfortunate geographer who gave our caravans his name. Every night, the team opens leather chests and canvas bags filled with tents, carpets, safari seats, candelabras, petrol lamps, silverware, food and drinks… Around a lively fire, experience the art of camping in legendary Bell tents, where comfort and aesthetics fit perfectly with the amazing surroundings.
