Enchanting Ladakh (June 07 Days; # 317)
The Himalayan Lakes and the High Passes of Ladakh
Ladakh is a cold desert in the trans-Himalayan region. The landscape is magical, unbelievably breath-taking.
It is known for blue waters, high passes, snowy peaks, and dunes. The tour encompasses many facets of the area related to people, landscape, customs, agriculture, architecture, spirituality, wildlife, birds, trade routes, Buddhism etc.
The riverine eco-system forms the lifeline of the region. The wildlife and birds are endemic in nature and it is also the home to the Grey Ghost – Snow Leopard.
This is a super photo tour for explorers and travelers. One will enjoy many aspects that will nurture all five senses of a traveler. The food and stay have favors that help the metabolism function better in the harsh weather of Ladakh.
Walking tours, Himalayan Safaris, Photography, interaction with local people and nomadic tribes, visits to the monasteries and villages, local folklore and music will keep you busy.
The visuals will change every few kilometers and a week will seem a lot less than the time Ladakh commands. But, there’s always another time. One visit will not do justice to your longing.
