Ladakh Extended Tour
Ladakh is situated on the northernmost tip of India, sandwiched between the Karakoram and the Himalayas. The Ladakh Leh Region is one of the touristiest and also among the least explored areas of India. It's believed that Buddhism penetrated to Tibet from India via Ladakh Himalayas. The influence of Buddhism can also be seen in the capital of Ladakh, Leh. During winter the region sometimes becomes inaccessible due the high snows. Enjoy the brightly painted monasteries, wall tapestry, handmade look and peculiar fragrance of Ladakh and behold your surprises.
For our Extended Ladakh tour, we fly from Delhi to Leh. From Leh, we make excursions to various regions and landscapes of Ladakh including Nubra Valley, Pangong Lake, Alchi, Kargil, and Tsomoriri Lake. Finally, we conclude the tour with a return flight from Leh to Delhi for your onward destination.
