Always Expect the Unexpected

There is no unspectacular way to arrive in Leh. The descent during the hour long flight from New Delhi, with the Himalayas outside your window, is just about the most fun you can have in a Boeing aircraft, make sure you arrive early to bag your window seat. Once on the ground, be sure to allow time in your itinerary for acclimatizing to the altitude (the prescription medicine Diamox can help).Makes sense to visit Ladakh between May and September, when temperatures are bearable and roads are open. 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.

  • 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!

Customized Trip
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • What meals are included on my trip? Can i request Indian / vegetarian / special cuisine on tour?

    The exact number of meals included on the trip is clearly specified on the itinerary and is different for each trip. Our vacations strive to introduce you to local authentic flavors, so you can enjoy the destination in a deeper way. Therefore, included meals are usually local or continental. Please request vegetarian meals at the time of booking, and also with the local guide and WOW Buddy on tour; this can usually not a problem when requested in advance. When meals are not included, you may choose an restaurant of your choice in the city you are touring.
