Salopek Completes Epic Crossing of India

Date: December 05, 2019
Approximate GPS Location: (24.25°N, 94.30°E)

Salopek’s long trek through India is coming to an end. For the last few weeks, he has been walking through the hills of the rural northeastern state of Manipur.

As he approached the border with Myanmar, he was joined by many of the walking partners who had accompanied him through the Indian sub-continent. Together, they celebrated his final steps through an incredibly diverse country.

Salopek has also been fundraising to help his project continue into its next phase. The drive has been successful, breaking their initial goal and allowing Salopek to continue after nearly seven years on the road.
