The tour "Ladakh: Trails Of Little Tibet" starts from and ends in New Delhi. It is a trekking and hiking trip that takes 13 days taking you through Temisgam, Lamayuru, Hemis Shukpachan and 5 other destinations in India. "Ladakh: Trails Of Little Tibet" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Remote, rugged Ladakh is making a name for itself as a paradise for adventurous walkers. The high-altitude desert region in northern India is flanked by the mighty peaks of the western Himalaya, Karakorum range and Tibetan Plateau and soaked with a history stretching back centuries. Our journey starts with a scenic flight from Delhi past the mighty Himalaya to the regional capital Leh, where we acclimatise and explore the town. We then set off on a fairly gentle trekking adventure, allowing us to marvel at jagged mountain ranges, explore Buddhist monasteries and find out why this culturally rich region has earned the nickname Little Tibet.
