Ladakh: The Great Escape

  • Hemis Monastery

  • Nubra Valley

  • Pangong Lake

  • Khardong La and Chang La Pass

  • Ladakhi cultural show

Spend a week in Ladakh luxuriously!

The adventure capital of the country, Ladakh is famous for the top two highest motorable mountain passes in the world. This is the reason to why Ladakh gets the name as Roof of the World. It is also famous for Tibetan and Buddhism culture. Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect gompas dramatically crown rocky outcrops next to fluttering prayer flags and whitewashed stupas, while prayer wheels spun clockwise release merit-making mantras. It's a little corner of Tibet marooned in the farthest reaches of India. Ladakh offers mesmerizing view with a surreal palette of vivid blues, which contrasts magically with the surrounding colourful mineral swirls, snow-brushed mountains, tremendous scenery on a grand scale, with green oasis villages. Pack Andrew Harvey’s book 'A Journey in Ladakh,'you may like to catch upon your reading during the in between moments.

    “Ridiculously efficient” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Kanu Baby aka Kanika. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Kanika for a very short period of time (Leh –Ladakh: 26 May – 2 June), during which she expertly filled the role of our tour coordinator. I was impressed with her ability to handle even the toughest clients—and effortlessly. That skill often takes years to develop among professionals, but it seemed to come perfectly naturally to her. I was also in awe of Kanika’s ability to command a room and get people on board with ideas—even people who were initially on completely different pages.

    I could perfectly recall her taking charge of meeting us at the airport. She ensured that we were comfortably settled in our hotel. She explained the itinerary and schedule of the travel. She and Amu provided significant information about each destination or attraction visited with emphasis on its cultural and historical meaning, she managed meals and transportation related to the tour, handled emergency situations. She also ensured that we all had a stimulating experience of local offerings. I was particular intrigued that how effortlessly she blended with our group and participated in regular enjoyment activities along with us all.

    And, of course, her outgoing and friendly personality, excellent leadership, problem-solving abilities, ability to organize trip effectively, open-mindedness to others’ opinions and ideas would be a true asset for any company and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.

  • Wanderers having a great time on their way to Nubra valley.
  • About life of people in Ladakh, they traditionally lead a nomadic rustic life and are sincere and honest.
  • When at Pangong, some pictures are a MUST. Location Of Magnetic Hill In Ladakh. Sitting pretty at an altitude of 14,000 feet, Magnetic Hill is located on the Leh-Kargil-Baltic National Highway in the Trans-Himalayan region. A unique feature of the lake is that it does not remain blue throughout the year or even the day, rather it changes colours from azure to light blue to green and grey too!
