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.”

DAY 1 -2

ARRIVAL INTO LEH

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.

DAY 3 - 8

SUMMER IN THE HIMALAYAS

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

HOMEWARD BOUND

Return to Delhi by flight from Leh

Enjoyed EVERY second of an action- packed two weeks in Kenya. Asante Sana👏

"This was my fourth safari booked with Natural High and, as previously, it surpassed my expectations. Vanessa’s Itinerary was spot on - the three camps were very different but all were spectacular with food to die for, wonderful staff, friendly, knowledgeable and great driver/guides. I could go on and on - it was perfect, and the icing on the whole trip was tracking, and finding a pack of Wild Dogs - the reason for going😃
Already saving for a 5th trip and will DEFINITELY book with Natural High - they are the Best!"

Morroco was a pleasant surprise

"This was certainly not our first trip with natural high.
As any other trip, organization was great, ie pick up, vehicles, local guides, food, all well done.
I now have a different opinion of the country and people."
