Overview

Ladakh is a land that can be described only as a speculative expanse. Geographical, historical and human factors have endowed this region, known earlier as Manyul – the land of men – with its unique character and place in the World.

 

Wildflowers bring colour to this valley as spring takes over. Ladakh has often changed names, all of which give a good description of the conditions prevailing in the region: Ladwags-land below the mountain passes; Bladwags: land of the lama; Maryul: the red country; Muah Risb Ssor Gsum: land to the west of Tibet. In the West, it is sometimes referred to as Moon Country and Little Tibet.

 

Although modernity has spread its tentacles, the simplicity and the ethnicity of Ladakh’s age-old tradition have remained embedded among the people of the region. This journey offers a unique opportunity to enjoy the cultural warmth and hearty hospitality offered by its people while at the same time providing alternative livelihood sources that in turn lessen the burden on natural resources and help conserve wildlife.

 

To foster community-based tourism that supports nature conservation while providing a unique experience to the visitor, certain ethics are followed here. As a guest, you can experience village life close-up by living in Ladakh’s aesthetic earth-houses, learning about its unique agricultural practices and getting insights into its Buddhist heritage which is often not possible in routine escorted tours and while staying in the modern hotels.

  • Highest motorable passes in the world.
  • Enjoy the cultural warmth and hearty hospitality offered by its people.
  • Experience village-life close-up by living in Ladakh’s aesthetic earth-houses.
  • Learning about its unique agricultural practices.
  • Get insights into its Buddhist heritage.

Take amongst the most beautiful flights over the Himalayan ranges, we urge you to take a window seat to observe the landscape change below you from the great Indian plains as you depart New Delhi to Alpine green mountains as you fly over Himachal into the Cold desert of Ladakh where the starkness of the mountains humbles you.

 

At the airport, you will meet your chaperone who is well-versed in the landscape of this region. A short 01-hour drive along the Indus River brings us to our hotel in Lower Ladakh. As we have had an altitude shift from 300m to 3000m, it is imperative that we
acclimatize and take it easy, allowing our body to adjust to this shift, so spend the afternoon reading a book taking a nap or just soaking the landscape.
Lunch amidst an apricot & apple Orchard.

 

In the evening take a Momo making class to begin our immersion into this land. Enjoy a scrumptious dinner under the stars at the hotel.

Stay at Nimmu house (Heritage rooms) in Nimmu.

Wake up for a Pranayama class in the in-house yogashala. Meet with your Buddhist scholar guide for breakfast to understand the simplistic teachings within the complex philosophies of Tibetan Buddhism, before we make our way to one of the most important temple complexes in Ladakh.

 

Local Ladakhi lunch at Alchi Kitchen by Chef Nilza, before we make our way back to Nimmu. Afternoon at leisure, before we head out for an evening walk through the village to understand the Ladakhi way of life. Dinner at the hotel.

 

Stay at Nimmu house (Heritage rooms) in Nimmu.

After an early breakfast at the resort say goodbye to your hosts at Nimmu house and start the mesmerizing journey to Nubra Valley. A journey of 180 km tracing an important part of the ancient Silk Route.

 

Arrive at Desert Himalaya Resort in Nubra Valley where a gastronomical feast awaits you. Enjoy your farm-to-table lunch prepared by the chefs at the resort. After relaxing for a while at the resort drive to Hunder Sand Dunes situated at 07 km from the Resort.

 

It is unbelievable, when one thinks of it, that a desert could exist at so high an altitude! Equally surprising is the sight of the double-humped Bactrian camels, whose two humps enable them to develop resistance to cold, drought & high altitudes. Taking a ride on these
double-humped camels which gently make their way among the white dunes, with poplar trees dotting the landscape & the pleasing murmur of the River Shyok flowing nearby, it all makes for a memorable experience. As the evening approaches and the barren mountains are covered with the crimson hues of the sun, you wonder how such a place could exist in this mad chaotic world of ours. Dinner under the star-studded sky with a bonfire at the Resort.

 

Stay at Desert Himalaya Resort (Premium Tent/Campervan) in Diskit.

Get up early in the morning to visit Diskit monastery and witness the Morning Prayer ceremony of the resident monks. Belonging to the Gelugpa (yellow hat) sect, parts of the monastery, which houses 120 resident monks, are about 760 years old.

 

Return to the resort for a hearty breakfast. Post breakfast start the journey back to Leh via Warila pass (5312 Mts), the most scenic route with the best views of Shyok River. Nature has not been rearranged by the human hand here. Descend the road from the pass and reach Chemrey monastery. An important centre of Buddhist learning, the monastery attracts a large number of tourists because of its picturesque location. The monastery was founded in 1664 AD and currently 20 monks reside here.

 

Experience a farm-to-table lunch prepared by a local family in Sakti village with local organic produce.
Continue driving to reach Leh market to avail your last chance to buy souvenirs for your loved ones back home. Enjoy a mesmerizing sunset at a riverside farmhouse Drinks and farewell dinner with a bonfire along the banks of the river Indus.
