Tour Highlights:

  • Sightseeing of Delhi, the capital of India.
  • Visit Ladakh, with its extraordinary landscapes and unique mountain culture.
  • Spend three nights in Leh, the perfect base from which to explore Leh, Stok and Thiksey Monasteries.
  • Explore the Nubra Valley, try out whitewater rafting, archery, cycling and taking in the extraordinary scenery.
  • Soak up the atmosphere and unique culture and landscapes of this exceptional state.

Most people avoid summers in India, thinking that it will be too hot to travel at that time of year, and they would be right, for the main part, but for Ladakh, perched at the top of the country, this is the perfect time to visit! This region is like no other place on earth. The highest state in India, it is extraordinarily beautiful with unique landscapes, in some points barren and dotted with beautiful lakes, snow-capped mountains and, as it was until relatively recently, shut off from the rest of the world from November to April, it has retained a culture all of its own.

It is the perfect destination for photography, culture and adventure , done as independent activities or all rolled into one itinerary.   Here, we have given the basics of a wonderful trip  but can easily adapt the activities to suit your own requirements. Go on, what are you waiting for?  .
