THE ULTIMATE TRAVELLING CAMPS IN LADAKH

ABOUT THE ITINERARY

You will ride a Bactrian (two-humped) camel across the famous sand dunes at Diskit and take a bicycle down a Himalyan mountain trail to the village of Shakti. You’ll also be chauffeured across what is widely regarded as the highest motor-able road in the world; the fearsome but unmissable 5580 metre high Khardung La Pass.

But part of your journey will also be spiritual; you can meet lamas, consult oracles about your future plans and visit the serene monasteries for which the region is famed.
