Ladakh, A Trans-Himalayan Safari
15 days tour from £3345
Introduction - Ladakh, A Trans-Himalayan Safari
The rugged landscape of Ladakh, home to ancient monasteries perched in improbable locations, remained unexplored for centuries, and has only recently been opened up to visitors. One of the highlights of the tour is a spectacular jeep drive through some of the highest mountain passes in the world, including Taglang La, at over 17,000 feet.
Views in the arid high altitude landscape change dramatically at every turn, with the blue waters of the Indus River flowing ever through. There is the chance of sighting rare wildlife including the magnificent snow leopard. We also take in the serene hill town of Dharamsala, the Dalai Lama’s home in exile.
You travel independently as a private tour. The Manali-Leh drive is by jeep.
