Ladakh Private Tours
Ladakh tours mean taking a step back in time as you walk down the streets of Leh, the tiny capital of the region where mud brick houses are still a common sight. Here is where many choose to begin their Ladakh private luxury travel tours because the town provides an excellent gateway to its bevy of Buddhist monasteries and trekking opportunities.
No luxury Ladakh vacation is complete without visiting the region’s monasteries. Wedged between Tibet and Kashmir you will find the Thiksey Monastery, home to 120 monks and one of the largest and most strikingly monasteries in all of India. The roads of Srinagar lead to the Lamayuru Monastery, where the literal is “Place of Freedom”. The monastery still serves as a hub of knowledge, where ancient Buddhist rituals are disseminated to monks as they have been for centuries. Another stop on many Ladakh tours is the Hemis Monastery, which in addition to being the largest monastery in the region is also famous for its annual festival honoring Padmasambhava, a guru who helped spread Vajrayana Buddhism in the 8th century.
In addition to the many cultural riches, private luxury travel to Ladakh can take you to nearby Pangong Tso, a beautiful high altitude lake that lies on the Indo-China border whose deep blue waters are surrounded by some of the pristine mountain and isolated mountain peaks in the world. Spend your luxury Ladakh vacation exploring the region’s other bountiful natural wonders. Many Ladakh tours include a stop in the Nubra Valley, accessible only by way of the Khardung La, which at 18,380 feet is one of the highest roads in the world. Here in this stark and improbably beautiful land you can take a camel ride that offers amazing views of both the Ladakh and Karakoram Mountains. One of the highlights on any luxury tour of Ladakh are the excellent trekking opportunities. This is a wonderland for active travelers seeking fresh air, gorgeous landscapes, and a true adventure. Our overland walking tours take you to numerous small villages and monasteries, and allows you ample time to absorb the magnificent Himalayan landscape. For those seeking to trek during their luxury travel in Ladakh, one long-loved option is the Kang Yetse in the Markha Valley. And when your legs are weary, we recommend floating down the Indus River with the beautiful backdrop of the Tibetan Plateau.
