Shalom India, Tsahal's lost soldiers (52 mn)
Once their army service is behind them, many Israelis flock overseas for a year or two. Out of 60 000 who travel each year, 30 000 go to India.
The trip is a way to forget traumatizing experiences lived or seen while in the army and to escape the current situation in Israel.
Every year, some Israeli backpackers get in trouble as a result of drug use and post traumatic stress and have to be rescued.
