About the area

Indian Himalayas

Ladakh or "land of high passes" is a region of India in the state of Jammu and Kashmir that lies between the Karkoram mountain range in the north and the main Great Himalayas to the south. Ladakh is the highest inhabited region of India. Most of Ladakh is at an altitude of over 3000m making it perfect for trekking.

Everywhere you look you'll see arid land, framed by snow-capped mountains, glistening in the sun. Inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent, its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet with the majority of locals either Tibetan Buddhists or Muslims.

For more general information about visiting India see our India General Info page.

Accommodation

Accommodation


Camping

When camping you will stay in 2 man tents. Camp staff will erect and dismantle the tents each day, cook all meals and wash up for you - all you need to do is relax. You'll be greeted each morning with freshly brewed Chai or coffee and each evening when you get to camp, with snacks and a range of hot drinks.

Guesthouses and Hotels

Accommodation can at times be a little basic in this region; however all hotel rooms are en suite and water and electricity supplies are fairly reliable. Single rooms can be requested for an additional cost (subject to availability); please enquire at the time of booking.

Fitness and safety

Fitness Levels

Due to the altitude and terrain this is a challenging tour and requires a good level of fitness. We can provide you with a training program to help improve your fitness prior to the tour - all you need to do is ask.

Altitude Warning

This trip goes to high altitudes where there is a risk of being affected by Acute Mountain Sickness. Our itineraries are designed to enable everyone to acclimatise to these altitudes, but you should be aware that it is still possible for you to be affected. Although rare, a number of medical conditions can also reduce your body's ability to acclimatise, and thus will affect your performance at altitude and make you more susceptible to AMS. If you are worried about any pre- existing condition (e.g. heart problems), or unsure of your physical ability, we recommend that you seek medical advice prior to booking.

Support

This is fully guided tour. Under no circumstances will you be left alone to make your way to the next camp. All guides are trained in first aide and there will be a complete first aide kit including oxygen in case of emergency. There is the option of carrying your own pack or utilising porters.

Packing

We even tell you what to pack!

A suggested packing list will be provided to you with your itinerary.
