Ladakh

Ladakh is located at the very northern tip of India in between the western Himalaya and the Tibetan Plateau. The culture is Buddhist with very close ties to Tibet and has in the past been described as ‘Little Tibet’.

Why visit Ladakh ?

  • Go white water rafting on the mighty Indus & Zanskar Rivers
  • Hike to remote villages renowned for their brass work
  • Go trekking with your own camel caravan into the Nubra Valley
  • Compete in an archery competition against the locals
  • Visit the astonishing temples and stupahs of the area

There are some excellent trekking routes around the Ladakh and Zanskar Valleys which will bring you into contact with some wonderful stompas, pastures, mountain passes with some stunning views. The best time for trekking here is from July to September when the weather is generally very pleasant and there is no snow blocking the mountain passes.
