Discovering Leh Ladakh

Untouched by the hustle and bustle of people, Ladakh is nestled between the Himalayas and the Karakoram mountain ranges. Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect Tibetan Buddhist monasteries dramatically crown rocky outcrops amidst whitewashed stupas and mani walls. Vibrant, fluttering prayer flags share their spiritual messages metaphorically with the mountain breeze. Travelers from all across the globe throng to Ladakh to enjoy the natural setting of this cold desert.

Jorge Covarrubias , United States

I am very pleased with my tour! Everything was perfect! I am very glad with the high quality of the hotels, the guides, the drivers, the representatives, the tours, the transportation. I didn't have a single problem nor disappointment during the 15 days. It was pure magic. Therefore I congratulate you for the quality of your service and you can be sure that I will recommend you 100%. As stated, everything was perfect and all the people involved were knowledgeable, but I want to recommend three of them (although all were excellent). - Vivak was the most helpful and nice guide. He helped me through the chaos at the train station en Jhansi, waited for the delayed train to come, helped me to find my seat and was always interested in my well being. Very nice guy all the way. - My driver for several days during the second part of the tour was incredible skillful, prudent, patient and nice. You couldn't get a better driver and companion. - My tour guide in Udaipur. He was the better listener. I told him what I needed and wanted, and he tailored the tour to fulfill my needs and interests, instead of overwhelming me with information. He should be an example for other guides. In brief, I loved the tour! And I am VERY PLEASED WITH YOUR SERVICE. Cheers! Read more
