Summer is a super time to visit Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas – it’s cut off from the rest of India by snow for the rest of the year.

STAYING IN SIMPLE BUT STYLISH MOUNTAIN HOMES THIS IS A PERFECT TRIP FOR THE ACTIVE AND ADVENTUROUS.

A rare chance to experience an unchanged rural way of life in this remote part of India. Journeys between your village houses are on foot, by river raft and by vehicles off the beaten track in Ladakh's Indus Valley.

Your excellent accompanying guide is always on hand to give you introductions to its people from shamans to smiths, with visits to Buddhist monasteries and walks to colourful oases and turquoise lakes in the high altitude deserts, all with views of rugged snow-capped peaks.

Mountains are the beginning and end of all natural scenery.”

- John Ruskin

Starting in Delhi you'll to be in position for the daily flight to Leh, the capital of Ladakh.

DAY 3 - 8

SETTLE IN TO LADAKHI LIFE

In a handful of different remote villages, high on the western end of the Tibetan plateau, you stay in stylishly renovated traditional houses for exclusive use during your stay. Each house has its own unique charm, and private cook/chef for a truly authentic village experience without scrimping on comfort. Spend the first day or two gently acclimatising to the high altitude.

With your private guide visit ancient monasteries and take walks among lush green fields and apricot, apple, and walnut orchards that burst into life for a few short months each summer. Your itinerary is flexible and the daily plans can be adapted along the way.

DAY 3 - 8

EXPLORING REMOTE LANDS

Continue your exploration of Ladakh - watch the tinsmith at work, meet the local oracle, learn to cook local dishes or hike, cycle and river raft through the spectacular scenery.

DAY 9

Another Perfect Trip

"Morocco was our fourth trip with Natural High and true to past trips, the itinerary was right on point for our interest and goals, all logistics went off without a hitch and the service throughout the trip was high end. Everyone we worked with were friendly and professional. We had a fantastic time...Thank you!"

Perfect holiday from start to finish.

"Absolutely excellent service. The itinerary was spot on and the whole holiday worked like clockwork. The pre holiday notes and briefing were most useful too. I would have no hesitation in recommending Natural High Safaris to others."

Fabulous trip to Tanzania

"This is the second time we have used Natural High Safaris, and again they organised an outstanding holiday for us, this time in Tanzania, combining a safari and beach holiday that was top-notch. Highly recommend them, with huge range of experience and desire to really understand what it is their clients want - and then delivering! Thanks to Catherine Ronan."

An outstanding trip to the Himalayas superbly designed by Natural High.

"Natural High organised a 2 week family trip to Ladakh in August 2018. Andrea Hulme used her local knowledge to design an exciting trip that included a 5 day trek, white water rafting and numerous cultural visits and experiences. Their local partners Shakti were absolutely outstanding and we loved staying in the village houses as opposed to hotels. Their female Ladakhi guide Sonam was really one of the best we have every had on our travels."

"Yet again another great holiday arranged by Natural High - Air France tried to ruin it but Natural High and their local agent were very helpful in resolving the problems caused. ."
