Past Pad Yatras

Filter Project

Between 5th March and 5th April 2013, more than 1000 participants joined in Sri Lanka to begin an epic walking journey, promoting peace and eco-friendly way of living. This was the first pad yatra outside of India and a state visit well arranged by the Sri Lankan government.

More than 600 participants joined this time to walk from Mumbai to Sanchi Stupa, India. The amount of non-biodegradable rubbish more than doubled from the last two Eco Pad Yatras, proving that the more densely a place is, the more it is needed to implement proper recycling facilities.

From Drilbu Ri (Lahaul) to Hemis (Ladakh), the Gyalwang Drukpa took more than 700 monks, nuns and lay devotees (and 300 mules and donkeys) on a 42-day treacherous walking journey of 400km - for purification, for spreading the message of love and for educating the Himalayan people about preserving their environment in the Himalayas, an important water source for half of the world's population

That's all
