highlights
  • Take a whitewater rafting trip you'll never forget among the dramatic and jagged mountain passes of Ladakh. Ladakh means the 'land of high passes' due to its location between the Siachen Glacier in the Karakoram range and the Great Himalayas.
  • Sleep under the stars in the Himalayas, at a local camp in remote Yangthang. Waking up surrounded by the peaks of the Himalayas and enjoying the crisp mountain air is the ultimate way to reconnect with nature.
  • Spend three days trekking through the mountains, visiting small monasteries and keeping an eye out for ruins of historical forts. You'll also partake in a mountain homestay one night in the Sham Valley, where you'll have the chance to experience life like a local.
  • Experience the vibrancy of Delhi, India's chaotic capital and a vivid contrast to the peace of the Himalayas. Visit famous temples like Gurudwara Bangla Sahib or some of the cities beautiful gardens like the tranquil Lodhi Garden.
The India Himalaya: Hike, Bike & Raft in Ladakh tour starts and ends in New Delhi. The India Himalaya: Hike, Bike & Raft in Ladakh is a Trekking tour that takes 11 days taking you from New Delhi, India and through other destinations in Asia.

Hike, bike and raft your way through India's stunning Ladakh region. You'll call the Himalayas home and trek through mountain passes and remote villages before descending on two wheels from one of the highest motorable roads in the world. Explore the valleys as well as the peaks while rafting rapids and flat water, and gain an insight into the region's Buddhist beliefs after visiting several monasteries and religious sights.
Welcome to Delhi, India's chaotic capital that's everything you imagine it to be and more. Meet your group at 6 pm, but there's no harm arriving early and immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of old and new Delhi.
Accommodation
  • Hotel
Fly from Delhi to the mountain city of Leh, located in the Indian Himalayas approximately 3500 metres above sea level. Today provides an opportunity to relax and acclimatise to the altitude before taking part in some physically active adventures over the next coming days. Take a stroll, take it easy and take in the views.
Accommodation
  • Hotel
Spend another day taking in the sights of Leh. Sharpen your bargaining skills with visits to the Tibetan Market and local bazaars, then head to Leh Palace for spectacular views of the city and surrounding mountains. Construction of the palace began in 1553 and it's modelled after the Potala Palace, which was the Dalai Lama's official residence up until 1959. Nearby, the Shanti Stupa sits high above town and is a breathtaking sight nestled in the seemingly never-ending Himalayan range.
Accommodation
  • Hotel
Ladakh is known for its phenomenal whitewater rafting and today you'll experience some of the best. Depart in the morning to paddle a 30-kilometre stretch of river from Chilling to Sangam, which features Grade III/IV rapids, some truly beautiful scenery and a serious adrenaline spike. Once finished, drive through the mountain passes and look down on the river on your way to your homestay in the Sham Valley.
Accommodation
  • Homestay
Visit the monastery atop a hill upstream of the village, then hike through the villages of Sumdo and Yangthang as you cross small passes called Phobe La (3550 metres) and Charatse La (3650). Spend the night at camp in Yangthang after four to five hours of trekking, and enjoy your first night out under the Himalayan stars.
Accommodation
  • Camping (Basic Facilities)
Wake surrounded by peaks and breathe in the crisp mountain air as you prepare for another day of trekking. Enjoy breakfast in Yangthang then hike towards Rizong Monastery, known for its strict monastic rules. Pass through groves of poplar, willow, apricot and apple trees alongside a mountain stream before arriving at Chulichan Nunnery, which sits below the monastery, after approximately half an hour. Enjoy lunch then continue trekking, crossing a pass behind the monastery on your way toward the small village of Hemis Shukpachan, where you'll camp the night.
Accommodation
  • Camping (Basic Facilities)
Today you'll trek from Hemis Shukpachan to Temisgam, taking approximately three to four hours. It's a slightly longer day and involves crossing Maptek La, a pass sitting at 3750 metres above sea level. From here, there are fantastic views of the surrounding valleys and mountains. You'll get your first glimpse of Ang soon after the pass, from where the road leads down to Temisgam village. Here, there are ruins of a historical fort and a small monastery containing a marble statue of Avalokitesvara, a Bodhisattva representing compassion. The trek comes to an end here, and on completion the group will return to Leh for the night.
Accommodation
  • Hotel
Spend a day sightseeing around Leh on bikes. Enjoy breakfast, then jump in the saddle and check out Shey Palace, the Thiskey and Hemis monasteries, the Stok Palace Museum and Sindhu Ghat. In total, you'll bike for three to four hours through breathtaking scenery, taking in Buddhist buildings and dwellings built into the sparse, imposing landscape.
Accommodation
  • Hotel
Gear up for a big day of cycling. After breakfast, drive to Khardung La Pass, one of the world's highest motorable road (over 5300 m above sea level), from where your two-wheeled adventure begins. Translating as 'Pass of Lower Castle', Khardung La was once a vital road connecting Leh with trade routes across Central Asia, though now it services the Indian military and, of course, travellers. While the famous sign at the top claims the title of Highest Motorable Road, there are several others that are higher but still, it's pretty ridiculously high. You'll enjoy stunning views of the landscape on your descent. Later, in the afternoon, there'll be free time to explore the markets before overnighting in Leh.
Accommodation
  • Hotel
Say goodbye to Leh, your mountain home, and the Ladakh region as you fly from Leh to Delhi. The rest of the day is free for you to reacquaint yourself with the sights and sounds of the city, no doubt a huge contrast to the past week or so. If you have any energy left, get together with your group for a farewell dinner and toast a trip that'll leave you feeling high regardless of the altitude.   
Accommodation
  • Hotel
This Himalayan adventure comes to an end in Delhi today. There are no activities planned and you're free to depart at any time, but we highly recommend spending some time in Delhi and checking out the range of Urban Adventures (urbanadventures.com/destination/delhi-tours). After all, you're only a few hours away from the Taj Mahal.

  • Physical preparation

    You’re in for an active trip! Whilst previous experience isn’t essential for getting involved, a good level of fitness will really help you get the most out of this tour. There are certain activities it’s not possible to skip. If you can imagine yourself hiking for two days on the trot or canoeing for a couple of days and setting up camp on the shore; this is the adventure for you.

    If you’re already a regular exerciser, it might be an idea to up your game a little. Run those extra laps, cycle the extra mile or swim a few more lengths to make sure you’re on top form. If you’re not exercising so regularly (we’re talking 2-3 times a week here), it’s important to start in the weeks leading up to your departure. Your best bet would be to tackle trip-related activities (yes, that’s cycling and hiking), but anything cardio based will make a huge difference (swimming, running or rowing). Add it to your routine now and you’ll be ready to go in no time.

  • Group leader

    All Intrepid group trips are accompanied by one of our group leaders. The aim of the group leader is to take the hassle out of your travels and to help you have the best trip possible. Intrepid endeavours to provide the services of an experienced leader however, due to the seasonality of travel, rare situations may arise where your leader is new to a particular region or training other group leaders.

    Your leader will provide information on the places you are travelling through, offer suggestions for things to do and see, recommend great local eating venues and introduce you to our local friends. While not being guides in the traditional sense, you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious and social aspects. At Intrepid we aim to support local guides who have specialised knowledge of the regions we visit. If you were interested in delving deeper into the local culture at a specific site or location then your leader can recommend a local guide service in most of the main destinations of your trip.

  • Communications

    WIFI
    Generally WiFi is available in most parts of India and at most of the accommodation we use. It's usually free in public areas of hotels but some properties will charge for in room use. Please ask your tour leader or the specific hotel reception upon check in. Many restaurants and cafes (especially in tourist areas) offer customers free WiFi. Ask for the password when ordering.
    Internet cafes are widespread in India and connections are usually reasonably fast, except in more remote areas.

    MOBILE
    You can purchase a SIM at the airport (or at kiosks everywhere) for use while travelling in India. Airtel or vodaphone are a good bet. SIMs are relatively cheap. You will need to usually provide 2 passport sized photos and a copy of your passport will be made.

    MAIL
    Posting airmail letters to anywhere overseas costs ₹25/15. International airmail postcards cost around ₹12. For postcards, stick the stamps on before writing, as the post office can give you as many as four stamps per card. The post office is always a fun adventure in India!

  • Money matters

    The official currency of India is the Indian Rupee (INR). It's symbol is ₹. The most convenient and cheapest way to obtain local currency in is via ATMs, which are readily available in most towns. Look for Bank of India or ICICI ATMs. Our experience has shown they are the most reliable ATMs to use for withdrawals. Cash shortages at ATMs can be a problem in rural areas. Foreign currency notes that are old, torn or faded can be very difficult to exchange, so please bring clean bills, and small denominations are most useful. The use of credit cards can be restricted, mainly to major hotels, shops and higher end establishments.

    SPENDING MONEY:
    When it comes to spending money on the trip, every traveller is a little different. You know your spending habits better than we do, so please budget a sensible amount for things like meals not included, drinks, shopping, optional activities and laundry. It's always better to bring a little more than you think you'll need. Also make sure you've read your trip details thoroughly so you know what's included in the trip price and what isn't. This should make budgeting a little easier. You'll find this info in the Inclusions section of your Essential Trip Information (that's this document).

    Budget for meals not included: 180.00

    CONTINGENCY FUNDS:
    We try to plan for every eventuality, but there are still some things beyond our control. Please make sure you have access to an extra US$500 for emergencies (e.g. severe weather, natural disasters, civil unrest) or other events that result in unavoidable changes to the itinerary (e.g. transport strikes or cancellations, airport closures). Sometimes these things necessitate last minute changes to enable our trips to continue to run, and as a result there may be some extra costs involved.

    Optional tipping kitty for this trip: 3000 INR per person

    COMMISSION:
    The receipt of commissions or kickbacks in exchange for recommending particular shops, services or activities is ingrained in the culture of the Indian tourism industry.

    In an effort to best control and monitor shopping and activities with an aim for the best experience possible, Intrepid has established a system of carefully selected shopping experiences and activities based on positive feedbacks from our previous travellers. On occasion these will be as part of included walking tours or outside of included activities in free time. Please note that if you feel that you do not wish to join in on these shopping experiences we assure you there is no obligation and if you indicate your desire to not partake your group leader will help to facilitate a suitable alternative during this time.

    While Intrepid endeavours to ensure that these suppliers and services maintain reasonable levels of quality, please note recommended suppliers are chosen based on past travellers feedback and experiences and Intrepid cannot explicitly guarantee the quality of the product. A priority in establishing this fund is that the experience of you our traveller is not compromised in any way. Please let us know via the feedback after your trip if we are successfully meeting this objective.


    TIPPING
    If you're happy with the services provided a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it's of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid destinations.

    Your Tour Leader:
    You may consider tipping your tour leader for outstanding service throughout your trip. The amount is entirely a personal preference, however as a guideline US$3-US$5 per person (in local currency), per day can be used. Of course you are free to tip more or less as you see fit, depending on your perception of service quality and the length of your trip. Remember, a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service. Please don't tip with coins, very small denomination notes, or dirty and ripped notes. This is regarded culturally as an insult

    Commissions:
    The receipt of commissions or kickbacks in exchange for recommending particular shops or services is ingrained in the culture of the tourism industry. Rather than turning a blind eye to this unavoidable issue in some areas, we have established a centralised fund whereby contributions from recommended suppliers are collected and distributed back into the business. We aim to provide the best value trips in the market, and this fund assists in keeping operating costs and trip prices low to you. A priority in establishing this fund is that the experience of our traveller - you - is not compromised in any way. Please let us know via the feedback form completed after your trip if we are successfully meeting this objective.

    Optional Tipping Kitty:
    On Day 1 your tour leader will discuss with you the idea of running a group tipping kitty, whereby everybody contributes an equal amount and then your tour leader pays the tips for drivers, local guides, and hotel staff (excludes restaurant tips). The leader will keep a running record of all monies spent which can be checked at any time, and any money remaining at the end of the tour returned to group members. This is often the easiest way to avoid the hassles of needing small change and knowing when and what is an appropriate amount to tip. Participation in this kitty at your own discretion, and you are welcome to manage your own tipping separately if you prefer. Please note the tipping kitty excludes tips for your tour leader.

  • Climate and seasonal

    INDIA SEASONS:
    As a general rule have a look online to check the weather in India just before you are about to travel. This gives you a clearer understanding of what to pack. Here are some general ideas of seasons in India:

    December to March:
    Pleasant weather – warm days, cool nights.
    December and January bring chilly nights in the north.
    Fog can delay trains travelling across the north of the country
    Temperatures climb steadily from February.

    April to June:
    April is already hot; May and June are really hot and dry.
    From June, the monsoon sweeps from south to north, bringing high temperatures and humidity
    Cooler in the hills and mountains across the country

    July to November:
    Monsoon continues until November.
    The southeast coast and southern Kerala see heavy rain from October to early December.

    MONSOON:
    Travel in rural areas during the monsoon season can be hazardous. Monsoon rains cause flooding and landslides that can cut off some towns and villages for days. It is not unusual for trains to be delayed or cancelled resulting in itinerary changes or for activities in towns near to rivers and lakes (ie Varanasi) to need to be changed during this time of year. During the monsoon, excessive rainfall can see the river Ganges rise to unsafe levels. This may cause the suspension of all water related activities by local government. At this time of year walking along the Ghats can also be dangerous. Your tour leader will be able to advise you locally on any changes.

    WINTER:
    Winter in India can be colder than you might expect and as this is not peak travel season hotels in some regions may not have adequate heating. In these months you may like to bring thermals for sleeping.

  • A couple of rules

    Everyone has the right to feel safe when they travel. We don’t tolerate any form of violence (verbal or physical) or sexual harassment, either between customers or involving our leaders, partners or local people. Sexual relationships between a tour leader and a customer are strictly forbidden.

    Use or possession of illegal drugs will not be tolerated on our trips. If you choose to consume alcohol while travelling, we encourage responsible drinking, and expect that you’ll abide by the local laws regarding alcohol consumption.

    The sex tourism industry is known to exploit vulnerable people and have negative consequences on communities, including undermining the development of sustainable tourism. For this reason, patronising sex workers will not be tolerated on our trips.

    By travelling with us you are agreeing to adhere to these rules. Your group leader has the right to remove any member of the group for breaking any of these rules, with no right of refund.

    If you feel that someone is behaving inappropriately while travelling with us, please inform your tour leader or local guide immediately. Alternatively, contact us on the emergency contact number detailed in the Problems and Emergency Contact section of this Essential Trip Information.

  • Emergency contact

    In case of a genuine crisis or emergency, transfer or accommodation issues, you can reach our local India Intrepid office on their 24 hour number:


    GENERAL ISSUES ON YOUR TRIP
    While we always endeavour to provide the best possible holiday experience, due to the nature of travel and the areas we visit sometimes things can and do go wrong. Should any issue occur while you are on your trip, it is imperative that you discuss this with your group leader or our local representative straight away so that they can do their best to rectify the problem and save any potential negative impact on the rest of your trip.

    We recognise that there may be times when your group leader/local partner may not be able to resolve a situation to your satisfaction - if this is the case, please ask the leader to speak to their direct manager.

    You may also choose to provide details in your online feedback, which we ask you to complete within 30 days of the end of your trip. But we do ask you to be aware that it is very difficult for us to provide any practical help after the trip is complete.

    Intrepid Emergency contact: +91 9599 914 852 ; +91 9999 005 019

  • Accommodation notes

    ACCOMMODATION:
    Some of the accommodation along the way is basic or simple, staying in local guesthouses and homestays. Some may have shared bathroom faciluties with cold water only. We use a mixture of air-conditioned and non-air-conditioned rooms. Some areas of India experience daily load shedding. This is where the power may be turned off at certain times of the day and usually occurs for a few hours in early afternoon. Most hotel properties have a restaurant or cafe serving local meals. Many restaurants and hotels do not serve alcohol for religious reasons or due to local laws. 

    SHOWERS:
    Showers at some hotels only have hot water at peak times (usually morning and evening). Outside of these times you may need to speak to reception to obtain hot water.

    ROOM ISSUES:
    If you have any issues with your room, please speak to the hotel and your tour leader right away rather than your travel agent so that the problem can be addressed without delay.

    OCCASIONAL ALTERNATIVE ACCOMMODATION
    The style of accommodation indicated in the day-to-day itinerary is a guideline. On rare occasions, alternative arrangements may need to be made due to the lack of availability of rooms in our usual accommodation. A similar standard of accommodation will be used in these instances.

    TWIN SHARE / MULTI SHARE BASIS
    Accommodation on this trip is on a twin/multishare basis. Please note there may be times where facilities will be shared rather than ensuite and rare occasions when you share a room with passengers travelling on a different Intrepid trip than your own.

    CHECK-IN TIME
    Throughout the trip we request that our hotels prepare rooms in time for our arrival, especially if we're arriving prior to normal check-in time. However this isn't always possible which means we won't be able to check-in immediately on arrival at some hotels. Instead, we can store our luggage and explore our new destination.

    PRE/POST TRIP ACCOMMODATION
    If you've purchased pre-trip or post-trip accommodation (subject to availability), you may be required to change rooms from your trip accommodation for these extra nights.

  • Your fellow travellers

    As you travel on a group trip you will be exposed to all the pleasures and maybe some of the frustrations of travelling in a group. Your fellow travellers will probably come from all corners of the world and likely a range of age groups too. We ask you to be understanding of the various needs and preferences of your group - patience with your fellow travellers is sometimes required for the benefit of everyone's travel experience. Remember too that you have responsibilities to the group. If you are requested to be at a place at a certain time, ensure that you don't keep the rest of the group waiting. We have found time and time again that the very best trips we operate are those where the dynamics within the group work well - this takes just a little effort on your part. Due to privacy reasons we are unable to provide you with contact details and any personal information about your fellow travellers booked on your trip prior to departure.

    SINGLE TRAVELLERS:
    Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and don't involve a compulsory single supplement. Single travellers share with people of the same gender in accommodation ranging from twin to multishare. Some of our itineraries have accommodation booked on a mixed gender share basis and where applicable this will be specified in our Essential Trip Information. On a selection of our trips, you have the option to pay a single supplement to ensure that you have your own accommodation (where available). Please note that this only applies to accommodation during the tour - pre-trip and post-trip accommodation will be booked on a single room basis.

  • Itinerary disclaimer

    ITINERARY CHANGES:
    Our itineraries are updated regularly throughout the year based on customer feedback and to reflect the current situation in each destination. The information included in this Essential Trip Information may therefore differ from when you first booked your trip. It is important that you print and review a final copy prior to travel so that you have the latest updates. Due to weather, local conditions, transport schedules, public holidays or other factors, further changes may be necessary to your itinerary once in country. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary seasonally to ensure our travellers have the best experience. Your tour leader will keep you up to date with any changes once on tour.

    OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES:
    A selection of optional activities that have been popular with past travellers are listed in the day-to-day itinerary. This isn't an exhaustive list and should be used as a guide only for some of what might be available. Prices are approximate, are for entrance only, and don’t include transport to and from the sites or local guides unless indicated. All activities are subject to availability. It may not be possible to do all the activities listed in the time available at each destination, so some pre-planning for what you are most interested in is advised. When it's recommended that travellers pre-book these activities, look for a note in the Special Information section of the day-to-day itinerary. For most, they can either be organised independently on the day, or let your leader know you are interested and they can assist.

    Where activities are considered medium or high risk, we work with operators whose safety and credentials we have sighted and assessed. Although it is possible that you may find the same activity cheaper with another operator on the ground, we cannot vouch for the safety or quality of that operator. Medium and high risk activities not listed above have not been assessed by us and as such our staff and leaders are unable to assist you with organising these activities. Activities that contravene our Responsible Travel policies are also not listed. Please remember that the decision to partake in any activity not listed is at your own discretion and risk.

  • Accommodation

    Hotel (7 nights),Homestay (1 nights),Camping (2 nights)

  • Joining point description

    L'Affaire Hotel is located in the intriguing Karol Bagh market area, surrounded by a mix of local stalls, shops and restaurants, as well as some western shops. It is only a 25 minutes ride by auto rickshaw (INR70-80 with bargaining) to get to the heart of Delhi, Connaught Place. The hotel features a restaurant and room service, and rooms are equipped with AC, TV & phone. Luggage storage and safe deposit facilities are also available at the hotel.

  • Finish point instructions

    A pre-booked departure transfer to the airport is available if arranged at the time of booking. Please advise us of your departure flight details at least 15 days prior to your trip start date. If you plan to stay longer, this departure transfer can only be offered in conjunction with post-tour accommodation booked through Intrepid.

    Delhi's Indira Gandhi's International Airport is approximately 25km from Karol Bagh. One of the biggest airports in the world, it can be quite chaotic.

    A taxi to the airport takes about 1 hour and should cost between 450 -500INR. Hotel reception or your leader can help you arrange a taxi.

    Please have a copy of your e-ticket on your phone/tablet or a printed copy to enter the airport.
    Before check in you must have your check in luggage x-rayed and sealed. Also ensure at check in that your hand luggage is tagged. (This is a mandatory in order to clear security.)

    Check-out time from the hotel is 12 noon. If you are departing later, you can arrange luggage storage at the hotel.

  • Important information

    1. A single supplement is available on this tour with the exception of the camping nights.
    2. Due to the demands of travelling at high altitudes a Passenger Self Assessment Form is required for this trip.

    NEW TRIP
    Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.

How our Travel Expert Service Works
  • 1 We connect you with a hand-picked and qualified travel expert who can match your trip requirements. The advantage of working directly through a travel expert is that you get the best and unfiltered advice from the very beginning.
  • 2 The travel expert will help you with creating and customising a trip for you. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the trip, the travel expert will also be able to help you with those.
  • 3 When you feel that your trip is exactly per your wish, you'll be able to book the entire trip here on Bookmundi.
The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment and Financial Guarantee Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL. All payments are therefore carried out in secure manners. We are furthermore member of the Danish Travel Fund which gives you a 100% financial guarantee for any money you pay on Bookmundi, even if we went bankrupt (which we we will not!).
  • Trip Replacement or 100% Reimbursement Bookmundi has hand-picked your local travel expert. Our role, as your trusted third party, is therefore to make sure that your entire experience runs as seamless and secure as possible. We guarantee to you that in the unlikely event where a local travel expert cancels your trip after your deposit or full payment has been made, we commit to replacing these services with another equally qualified agency so that your trip can go ahead as planned, or failing to replace it, we will give you a 100% reimbursement.
