LADAKH: A DREAM TRIP TO THE HIMALAYA REGION

Also known as “Little Tibet”, Ladakh is nestled between Kunlun mountain range and the Great Himalayas in Indus Valley in northwestern India. This magical Buddhist ex-kingdom is  home to jagged mountain passes and the world’s highest-altitude café. Make your own dream adventure pilgrimage.

– Epic trekking and camping through the Himalayas with their grand views

– World’s highest motorable mountain pass

– Traditional Buddhist monasteries like Hemis, Spituk and Thiksey spectacularly perched on the summit of sugarloaf mountains

– Meditation amid vast quietness of the arid landscape with its prayer flag-strewn passes and the sparkling high-altitude lake Pangong

Make sure your stay coincides with the famous masked-dance Hemis Festival, which has changed little in 500 years, and takes place in the beginning of July in 2014.
