Ladakh Highlight Tour

Ladakh Highlight Tour

This journey will take us on the ancient Silk Road, through the Ladakh and the Nubra valleys, a crossroad for commercial activities between India, Tibet and Central Asia. In the ancient kingdom of Sham, we will discover the main Ladakh monasteries and the wonderful sites surrounding them: Shey, Thiksey, Hemis, Spitok, Phyang, Lamayuru and Alchi… The second valley was an important stage for caravans following the Silk Road, which where swapping their mules for the famous camels of Bactriane. It is only since 1995 that the
Restricted area of the Nubra opened its doors to foreigners. Lying approximately 400m lower than Leh, Nubra sports a much milder climate, which enables its inhabitants to cultivate more extensively, as compared to their counterparts in the main Indus valley. The highlights of this tour are the crossing of the Khardong La pass (5400 m), on the highest motorable roads in the world and a Bactriane camel safari
