Flying into Leh feels more like landing on the moon than landing in India. The former capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh, its harsh, mountainous terrain is starkly beautiful and very dry, due to its high altitude and cold desert climate. Dotted with stupas and whitewashed houses, the Old Town is dominated by a dagger of steep rocky ridge topped by an imposing Tibetan-style palace and fort. The trip is led by Himraj Soin, an adventure travel journalist, an avid skier and climber and studied at Colorado College in the United States. He is a National Geographic Student Expedition leader and photographer whose expeditions have taken him to Tibet, Mongolia, Bhutan, Borneo, Madagascar, Peru, Morocco, Namibia, Argentina, Chile, and Antarctica and more. His works have been published in National Geographic, Vogue, Vice, and Runner's World, and The Outdoor Journal.
Revel in two weeks of seeing some of the most gorgeous towns, cities and wilderness that India has to offer. Stroll with us along rivers that are surrounded by towering trees and inhabitated by monastaries that themselves seem a part of the natural setting. Exploring Leh, Thimsgam, the Nubra Valley and more with one of the most prominent photographers in outdoor media, with an itenirary complied by the famed Ibex Expeditions. If you are longing to take in the culture, the nature and the spirituality of 'Little Tibet,' there is no trip that can offer an abundance of each of those facets in only two weeks.
