8 Days, 7 Nights
May to September
Fly into the elevated magical landscapes of Leh, the city in the sky, and uncover the surrounding Ladakh region. This cold, arid, remote, mountainous region takes your breath away, quite literally, with its sheer rugged beauty. The region lies directly in Tibet’s sphere of influence and its culture. Tibetan Buddhism and its unique philosophy has thrived here for centuries. Most of Ladakh outside of Leh is either very sparsely populated or is just a seemingly endless expanse of lofty mountains and valleys with the occasional Buddhist monastery. Journey into these remote areas to catch a glimpse of the cultural vibrancy of the people who have survived the harshness of their surroundings.
The pathway begins with flying into Leh from the capital Delhi. After exploring the grand palace and the monasteries in the town, we head out into the lofty wilderness. Several secluded monasteries and abbeys dot the spectacular landscape which stand out like jewels amid the cold desert. Drive, hike and walk to some of the abbeys and monasteries in Uletokpo and other remote hamlets and settlements; meet with the locals, the abbots, the Lamas and the students of the monasteries. Let the barren expanses of Ladakh win you over with is unspoiled allure.
With its innumerable stupas and brick houses, Leh is at once so traveller-friendly and yet so enchanting and hassle-free.
