You can extend your time in Ladakh, maybe try some of the more remote village houses, or add on some more adventurous trekking (we can set up mobile camps)
Ladakh is located to the far north of India, beyond the high Himalayan peaks, meaning that it is in the rain-shadow and doesn’t get affected by the summer monsoon. It borders Tibet, and as such has a long history of Buddhist culture with a dramatic scattering of Buddhist Monasteries. The Indus River flows through Ladakh, ensuring the valley floor is green and lush, juxtaposed against the arid, craggy valley hills making it strikingly beautiful. The altitude is around 3500m, meaning you need to take a little time to properly acclimatise before exploring this remarkable part of India. You’ll stay in lovely village houses in remote off-the-beaten track locations. The rooms have been refurnished to boutique hotel standards, with en-suite bathrooms. You only ever take the houses exclusively, so you see almost no other tourists, very much having the destination to yourself. You’ll have a team of guides, porters and cooks to ensure the experience is second-to-none. You mix up a variety of walks, drives and even rafting to get from one to the other (the day-to-day itinerary is tailor-made around your interests and travelling style). Explore interesting monasteries and local villages, maybe stopping for a picnic in a stunning location.
We arrange totally bespoke trips and design an itinerary that is designed around you. You may have seen a suggested itinerary that we can base your plans around, or we can start with a blank sheet and paper and design something from scratch.
