Ladakh Tour takes you to Leh as well as Nubra Valley and Pangong Lake. Ladakh region is the highest Indian plateau and also one of the least explored Himalaya regions. Because of its proximity with Tibet, Ladakh looks more like Tibet than India which is why the region is also called ‘Little Tibet’. Ladakh also has a historical importance in the region – it has been a part of the famous ancient Silk Road, serving as an important strategic point in the Himalayas since ancient times. Buddhism is believed to have penetrated to Tibet from India via Ladakh Himalayas. Similarly, Nubra valley has served as an important transit point for caravans traveling to Central Asia, China and Tibet.

During our stay in Ladakh, a buffet style breakfast will be served in our hotels. The remaining meals are not included. As a variety of meals are available in most hotels, it is advisable to ask the hotel or restaurant to recommend what is fresh and in season. Only on camping days will all meals be provided by Himalayan Glacier.
We use 4 star or ‘A’ class hotels for this tour. The accommodation will be in Hotel Shambhala or Hotel Gwaling International or similar in Leh.
