Those who visit Ladakh are usually adventure-seekers looking for the next high-altitude thrill, but we wanted to focus more on the zen side of things. Rich in culture, scenery and history, Ladakh is a treasure trove of wonders hidden away in a remote part of the world. After a start in Delhi, we’ll visit mountain villages, valleys, and Hindu and Buddhist temples along the road to Leh. If you’re looking to break a sweat after all, try rafting or hiking amongst other pulse-racing activities, but we totally understand if you’d rather just lay back and let the culture of the region soak right in.
A sightseeing tour of Leh will take you to Thiksey and Hemis monasteries as well as Leh Palace and Shanti Stupa. Visit the Hall of Fame, featuring weapons used during the Kargil war, and Gurudwara Pathar Sahib, a Sikh pilgrimage site. Stay for a night in the Nubra Valley is another highlight of the trip.
