While the temperatures drop to well below zero in the winter, summers in Ladakh are perfect. The days are warm and clear, and nights get pleasant, or even cold. You’ll get great views all around, thanks to the cloudless skies of Ladakh, and photographers will love the starry skies at night. The landscape of Ladakh, stark and sprawling, dotted with monasteries and charming villages, is the perfect escape from the urban jungles we live in.

If you go to Ladakh, you’ll get to explore ancient monasteries, ramble through the colourful Leh market, and visit the most important landmarks here. You can do Leh-Ladakh biking trips, go rafting on the Zanskar, or choose SUV roadtrip packages to see up-close this dramatic terrain.

MOTORBIKING IN LADAKH:

The motorbiking routes in Ladakh are on the To-Do list of every biking enthusiast, in India and around the world. The endless horizons, the empty roads, the wide-open spaces and the shimmering lakes to camp beside – it’s a biker’s paradise out here! These motorbiking summer tour packages are created in various lengths and budgets so that there’s something for everyone.

All itineraries include visits to the main landmarks and monasteries, depending on the time you have, but the focus is on the riding experience and the challenge of the terrain. Look for specialty packages that include rare locations like Turtuk, the last Indian village before the Pakistan border, or the itinerary that takes you from Spiti to Ladakh.

SUMMER IN THE ANDAMANS:

If summer is making you yearn for the cool blue ocean, these Andamans summer tour packages for 2020 are just the thing. White sand beaches, swaying coconut palms, laid-back island vibes, delicious meals, and gorgeous sunsets – the perfect setting for your summer holiday! The days are balmy, with a tropical summer feel, and the nights are warm too (you’ll be glad you booked A/C room), but it’s the perfect weather for all kinds of beach fun and underwater adventures.

Scuba diving in the Andamans is the best activity here. The visibility is great in the summers, and you’ll get to see bright coral reefs and vivid marine life. Scuba diving courses require you to know how to swim, but if you can’t swim, choose a Try Dive instead. You can also do snorkelling, sea walking, kayaking, glass bottom boats, parasailing, and more.
