Trekking in Ladakh

Think of the Himalayas and you'll inevitably think of Mount Everest. But there's so much more to see in this picturesque region than just the mother of all mountains. Across the mountain ranges in India, there's a whole different world waiting to be explored under your hiking boots. Hike among tiny villages, walk through remote valleys and marvel at isolated Buddhist monasteries high up in the cliffs. Even though you haven't left India, trekking through this unique tapestry of colours and cultures will make you feel that you've been transported to another world.
