Is Leh on your bucket list? It should be.
When people think of the Himalayas they don’t often think of India. However if mountains are your thing the Ladakh region in the Indian Himalayas is well worth exploring!
Flying in to the town of Leh at 3500m altitude you’ll need a few days to acclimatize before embarking on any serious adventures. This will give you a good chance to wander around town and explore the wonderful street markets, bars and take in the unbelievable views of snow capped mountains.
In the main street you’ll find loads of tour operators to book a trip into the mountains. An overnight trek out to nearby Rumbak Village where a local family will likely take you in for a milk tea is an awesome experience!
Or for the more adventurous head higher into the mountains in search of the elusive snow leopards. White water rafting and mountain biking are also very popular and easy to find a tour operator to accommodate.
So if considering a trip to the Himalaya’s don’t leave Leh off your list. It’s a magical part of Northern India.
