  • Trip introduction

    Take off on an epic road trip through Ladakh, with a group of like-minded travellers for company. This roadtrip combines the best sightseeing around Leh with some of the most exciting adventures that this mystical land has to offer. You'll camp on the banks of the famous Pangong Lake, ride an ATV in the sand dunes of Hunder, go rafting in the Zanskar river, and camp on the banks of the gorgeous Pangong Lake. In addition, you'll visit Pathar Sahib Gurudwara, Shanti Stupa, Shey Palace, Diskit Monastery, Thiksey Monastery, and the 3 Idiots school. You'll also drive to Khardung La, the highest motorable road in the world.

    This is a fixed departure trip on the 10th August 2019. Please enquire with us if you are looking for other dates.

    Destination

    The landscape of Ladakh beckons to all adventure-hungry souls. Out here, the silent plains and the endless mountains roll gently into the horizon, with the occasional gem-like blue of lakes. Gushing rivers carve through the craggy terrain, and glaciers rumble as they move slowly down the towering mountains.

    On this trip, you'll get to see many of the geographical features of the land: the Indus, Zanskar and Shyok rivers, a few high altitude passes, the strangely out of place deserts of Nubra Valley, and the utterly breathtaking Pangong Lake.
