Ladakh is truly a gem of a place, so unique in its being that it is hard to find any other
place that will compare with it. Ladakh lies in the glory of the Great Himalayan mountain
range and is known to have unique everything- climate, culture and people. The summer
season is defined by bright warm days while winter is harsh and marked by constants
now. The Zanskar river and Indus river have shaped the land and the people such that
they have a completely exceptional personality. The people and culture of Ladakh is
much like that of Tibet, so much so that Ladakh is often referred to as Little Tibet. Most
people follow the Buddhist faith and Ladakh is known for its beautiful monasteries.
While the beautiful tourist spots, monuments and monasteries, raw natural beauty and
delicious food make Ladakh are good tourist destination as it is, the option of Ladakh
Adventure Travel adds a thrilling edge to your vacation.



One of the most popular Ladakh adventure tours options is to sign up for a trekking tour.
Trekking in Ladakh is a once in a lifetime experience, and for adventure enthusiasts, it
can be one of the best life experiences ever. With glorious mountains and impressive
peaks, there is no end to the trekking options. Trekking in the region is divided into three
major parts: the Indus Valley region, the Zanskar region and the Kargil area. One of the
most popular trekking routes is that of the Markha Valley route spreading over the
Gandha La and the Gongmaru La.



Trekking is very popular in the Kargil area. Kargil is found just after the Zoji La Pass
area and trekking in this region is a popular activity. The small town of Kargil is known
for its gorgeous apricot orchids, great Tibetan cuisine and immensely friendly people.
One can plan a trek from the Sanko region to Drass, passing through the Umba region.
For those who enjoy even more of a challenge, there is the option of trekking from Sanko
to Mulbek through the Wakka La Pass region.



The Indus Valley region is another popular destination for many Ladakh adventure tours
since trekking is also practiced in this area. The Indus Valley region is found between the
Ladakh Range towards the North and the Zanskar Range towards the south. The Indus
Valley region is credited to be the heart and soul of Ladakh and has played an important
role throughout history. Lying at an elevation of 3500 meters above sea level and
peppered with mountains, this region is ideal for climbers and trekkers.
For those of you who truly enjoy a challenge, and want to make the Post Ladakh
adventure tours, concentrate on the Zanskar region. Zanskar is somewhat far flung from
the other parts of Ladakh and can only be reached by the high passes of Ladakh. It is a
valley stretching across an area of 300 kms and it is surrounded by mountains on all
sides. The Zanskar Valley is found in the inner areas of the Himalayan mountain range
and lies at a much greater altitude than the rest of Ladakh. The twin peaks Nun-Kun and
the rugged surroundings attracting climbers, hikers and adventure lovers from all around
the world.
