Roots Ladakh is a 3 year young travel start-up based in Kargil areas of Ladakh (Jammu and Kashmir state, India). At heart we are a for-profit social enterprise, in the business of adventure and rural tourism and are pioneers in promoting the lesser known parts of Ladakh Kargil and Zanskar. Our philosophy is to create shared value between the business and the community it thrives in. We believe that travel based initiatives are the best way to re-introduce Kargil and at the same time provide livelihood opportunities for the locals. We are a small team passionate about exploring the outdoors and are driven to help travellers look beyond the war history of Kargil and bring it on the world travel map.
Roots is a culmination of initiatives rooted in the social, cultural and ecological heritage of Ladakh. We believe that businesses have the potential to create shared values for self as well as the community it thrives in. We organise and curate unusual adventure and heritage trails into Kargil and Zanskar Valley.

We have a zero trash tolerance policy.| We always clean up after ourselves on all hikes and trips.| We use portable T3 tents and portable toilets and wash basins at our campsite which are cleared and wrapped up at the end of each journey.| Our camp locations are temporary and we don't keep any permanent fixtures at the location.| We say no to plastics.
