Your journey to Ladakh will begin with a private transfer to the airport. Upon arrival in Leh, you will be met by our expert staff who will take you on an exciting sightseeing tour of the area around the capital city and its surroundings. You will have a chance to interact with local people who live in this high altitude region, which include Ladakhis, Tibetan nomads and Westerners.
Leh, 11000 feet at the cusp of high Asia, is a trading town perched at the cusp of high Asia. The capital of Ladakh, Leh has a cheerful bustling atmosphere about the place, a surprising range of goods many of which are suitably exotic, and that immediately apparent ethnic mix of people and costumes that you would expect of a trading town perched at 11000 feet at the cusp of High Asia.
Leh is situated at an altitude of 11400 feet and a flight up from the plains means that you have to acclimatize gently without exerting yourself. The 2 1⁄2 days scheduled here is the minimum required time to acclimatize before going to a higher altitude and doing some fair amount of walking. You will get an opportunity to meet a representative from the Snow Leopard Conservancy for a briefing on the history of snow leopard conservation in Ladakh. This will help you get some insight into the current threats to snow leopards and the strategies adopted to combat these threats.
Start the day after an early breakfast, an extraordinary drive east heading towards Taglang La and the villiges of Gya, Lhato and Meru. It’s a fantastic drive taking you away from the valley of the Indus up a subsidiary valley to an extraordinary area even by Ladakhi standards that marks the line where the Indian mainland collided with and drove under Asian land mass. There is some dramatic scenery here and you have a chance of sighting wildlife including Blue Sheep, Golden Eagles and Bearded Vultures during your drive to the lodge.
