Discover the splendour of Ladakh’s spectacular alpine desert against a backdrop of the Himalayas
On this inspiring adventure, you will travel the centre of India’s amazing and diverse culture.
As you land in Delhi, you are quickly hit by the sweetly strong scent of flowers, incense and open cooking fires. This metropolis is a place where life is lived outdoors, from the streets to the markets, to lovely balconies where tea is downed with conversation.
Embarking on a full-day guided tour, you will discover a city founded by Mughal emperors and filled with the memorials of its conquerors, before taking a spectacular flight over the Himalayas to Leh.
From here, you will set=off on a four-day adventure through the North Indian Himalayas, over isolated alpine desert, next to grassy plains, along tree-lined paths and across unspoiled mountain rivers. Feel the elation of success as you summit Ganda La Pass.
As your challenge comes to an end, local Ladakhi performers will serenade you with the history of their culture in traditional song and dance.
