A cultural trek through remote villages and fertile valleys of the spectacular Indian Himalaya. Sandwiched between the western Himalaya, the Karakorum and the Tibetan Plateau, lies the high altitude desert of Ladakh, or 'Little Tibet'.
Ladakh remains one of the best places to experience the unique culture of the High Himalaya. As our trek follows the Markha River, we discover a landscape where lofty peaks of the Stok, Matho and Zanskar Ranges tower above picturesque Ladakhi villages and verdant valleys below.
Close to Ladakh's eastern border with Tibet, the rarely visited high plains of the Chang Tang are coloured in just a few places by beautiful turquoise lakes, such as Tso Kar and Tso Morari - this trekking and climbing holiday is the perfect way to view this remote and stunning landscape.
North of the main ranges of the Indian Himalaya, the remote province of Ladakh is beyond the influence of the monsoon and perfect for trekking during the summer holiday period. This excellent holiday is topped off with a visit to Agra and the magnificent Taj Mahal.
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.
Northern India is a wonderful destination for adventurers interested in exploring the spirituality of this fascinating region. While exploring the region, well have many opportunities to visit local villages and learn about their way of life and dedication to their religion.
Think of the Himalayas, and you'll inevitably think of Mount Everest.
