Your experience

Trip to the most beautiful and prominent destination of India, the high altitude deserts of Leh- Ladakh. It is a land like no other, shrouded in myths and legends. Ladakh is bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram. A maze of enormously high snow-capped peaks and the largest glaciers dominate the terrain. Remote yet never isolated, this trans-Himalayan land is a repository of a myriad cultural and religious influences from mainland India, Tibet and Central Asia. Highlights: - Drive to Leh on one of the most beautiful and scenic roads of the world, the Manali- Leh highway which crosses many high altitudes passes. - Visit the highest motorable road in the world, Khardungla pass (18,300ft). - Camp at the famous Pangong lake (shown in many movies including 3 idiots). - Visit Nubra valley, the majestic Diskit monastery. See the rare double hump camels and natural sand dunes. - Experience river rafting in the Zanskar river and it’s confluence with the Indus river. - Magnetic hill where the illusion makes your car appear to be travelling uphill, against gravity. - All for a budget like none other.
