Overview

Ladakh has four mountain ranges, the Great Himalayas, Zanskar, Ladakh and the Karakoram Ranges. Indus river, a water-body highly revered by both Buddhists and Hindus is the major river of this region. Pangong-Tso, the largest natural lake is the most beautiful lake with clear blue colour water and is 134 km long and 4 km wide of which 60% lies in China. Khardong-La at the height of 18,380 feet is the highest motorable road in the world and lies on the way to Nubra, the valley of Flower.

Ladakh was the connection between central Asia and South Asia when the world famous Silk Route was in use. The continuous cultural and commercial link between the surrounding regions of Himachal, Tibet and China helped maintain trade ties with them.

How would be the quality of the roads at these locations?
Kashmir roads are very good at most of the places but not that good in few places. However, at times, due to landslides which is a common feature in these locations, the roads might not be in good conditions. The local administration does everything to restore, but then might not be adequate. Thus you might experience bumpy rides at certain places. The guide would keep you informed about road condition.

What if the road is cut off or blocked? What should we do?
There is nothing to panic. We shall provide you with information on how the condition of road is on the day of travel to these high altitude places. If the road is blocked, we shall work out a different itinerary to ensure that you enjoy the holidays stress free and without hassles.

Can we get children on board?
Children above 6-8 years are certainly welcome and they would certainly enjoy the nature.

What kind of food is available in these high altitude places for eating?
Most of these places, the religion is Buddhist and follow Tibetan culture. In Leh and Ladkah, you get Rice, Roti, Sabzi, Daal at all towns and then would be a good idea to try Tibetan food like momo and noodles.
