Tours in Ladakh


Ladakh is popularly known as the, Land of numerous passes and mystic lamas, broken moon, little Tibet and last Shangrila. Ladakh is a land bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram, it lies athwart two other, the Ladakh range and the Zanskar range. The faces and physique of the Ladakhis, and the clothes they wear, are more akin to those of Tibet and Central Asia than of India.

The immigration from Tibet, perhaps a millennium or so ago, largely overwhelmed the culture of the Dards and obliterated their racial characteristics. In eastern and central Ladakh, today's population seems to be mostly of Tibetan origin. Many villages are crowned with a Gompa or monastery, which may be anything from an imposing complex of temples, prayer halls and monks' dwellings, to a tiny heritage.

Ladakh offers great cope for undertaking adventure activities amidst landscapes of breathtaking, rugged beauty. The most popular and best established among these are trekking, mountaineering, safari, river-rafting and tours in ladakh. The trekking options range from short, day-long walks up and down mountain slopes to visit monuments or monastic settlements, or long, Trans-mountain treks involving weeks of walking and camping in the wilderness.
