Service Description

After a long cold winter, the Apricot Blossom season marks a colourful beginning of spring. Valleys across Ladakh get draped in pink and white flowers and its a sight to behold. Unlike the cherry blossoms of Japan, Ladakh doesn’t attract big crowds (as yet) for the apricot blossom season, making it an even more desirable experience. People say you MUST visit Ladakh at least once in your life, we’d say at least twice: to see different avatars of it in different seasons: apricot blossom season being a natural wonder worth witnessing! In this trip, we will be exploring Sham valley and Aryan valley in west Ladakh, staying with locals to immerse ourselves in their way of life, learning to cook Ladakhi food and much more, all the while sipping on delicious hot beverages. > **Journey details: 8th-15th April 2023** > **Day 1: (Leh Airport-Leh)** Arrive at Leh airport.
