Summer Trips

Summer is the friendliest season to visit Ladakh. If you ever look up pictures of Ladakh, you’ll see the quintessential bright blue sky, lush green fields, fruits & vegetables in abundance and happily smiling locals. After many cold months of winter and spring, summer brings the much-awaited warmth along with many vibrant colours.  In our summer trips, we will be exploring routes beyond the crowded Nubra and Pangong, immersing in the rich culture through interactions with experts, learning to cook Ladakhi food and much more, all the while sipping on delicious fresh fruit juices and local teas.
