A boutique adventure accross the Great Indian Himalaya
Ladakh to Kashmir Overland Journey | 7 Days | Departs Delhi
One of the best ways to experience the stunning panoramas, rich history and Buddhist culture of the Indian Himalaya is by travelling overland.
With roads allowing access to some of the remotest parts of Ladakh for only four months of each year, this expedition will cross high mountain passes and traverse rugged landscapes to explore a stunning wilderness punctuated by ancient monasteries, prayer flags and rustic villages.
From Leh, take in the splendours of Shey Monastery, Thiksey, and Hemis before journeying across the world’s highest motorable pass, the Kardung La (5359m), to the remote Nubra Valley. Backtrack to Leh and then continue by road to Kashmir, one of the most beautiful regions of the Himalaya for two nights on-board the eco luxury houseboat moored on the mirror-calm waters of Dal Lake. Experience the uniqueness of life on the lake underneath the unforgettable vista of the Pir Panjal range.
