Tour Overview

This wonderfully remote and culturally distinct region in Northern India features breathtakingly situated ancient capitals, temples and monasteries, and some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the world. It is often thought of as a smaller version of Tibet. Our 13-day trip includes the many highlights of Leh and the colours and sounds of the annual Hemis Festival, where monks and laymen wearing spectacular costumes and masks perform elaborate traditional dances. A jeep excursion takes us to the dizzying heights of the Khardung La Pass, at 5470m / 18,400 feet, the highest drivable pass in the world. The tour continues McLeod Ganj, the home of the Dalai Lama in exile, and stops at Amritsar. This is a very special travel experience offered only once a year; booking early is essential as extremely limited local flights and hotel space sells out well in advance.
