Our itinerary incorporates a relatively easy trek with several memorable walking experiences through the stunningly beautiful landscape with stops at villages and monasteries en route, providing a grand introduction to this exotic and quaint region.
We start with a flight from Delhi to Leh (3,500m) that offers untrammeled, aerial views of the vast Himalayan range and its magnificent, snowcapped peaks. Here, we spend two days visiting local Buddhist monasteries and exploring local markets and villages and acclimatizing ourselves to the altitude. Our trek starts from Taru, a small village close to Leh, and crosses Taru La, a pass at 4,200m, taking us through a deserted plateau. We continue past several Ladakhi villages where we witness a traditional and unchanged way of Life along with a glimpse of the contrasting scenery offered by this part of the Himalayan landscape: /lofty snow-clad and forbidding peaks astride wild and barren hillsides alongside charmingly quaint and pretty villages in valleys that blossom in summer.
