Only the Adventurous Need Apply
Ever wonder how I or other workshop leaders put together our trips? Come with me to Ladakh, India and find out! This trip is a scouting mission for my 2018 workshop there. I usually do these trips alone but this time I'm looking for 1or 2 adventurous souls to join me. Fair warning, this is the trip where I find out if the light at the monastery is better at sunrise or sunset, if the lodgings are up to snuff, whether the planned route from point A to point B is reasonable in the allotted time given the road conditions and our mode of transport. In other words, we might arrive at the exact right place at the exact wrong time. If you can't handle that level of uncertainty, this trip is not for you. Also, I cover a lot more ground and work longer hours than I would ever consider scheduling into a group tour so you have to be in reasonable physical condition to keep up with the pace. On the other hand, if you value adventure, discovery and welcome the thrill of the unknown, let's talk and maybe we can check one off the bucket list together. Another benefit of the small group size is that you will receive a lot more personal attention than is possible with a larger group.
Heaven on Earth
Just about every Indian I've met refers to Ladakh as "heaven on earth." I've never been, but mountains are my thing and they don't make mountains any bigger or wilder than the Himalaya, so I'm pretty sure I'll agree.
Ladakh is a region in the northern Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir. The history, people and culture here are closer to Tibetan Buddhist than the rest of Hindu dominated India (see my Tibet gallery to get an idea of the faces and places we are likely to encounter). In addition to the buddhist influence, this region is home to several unique and ancient indigenous cultures. A detailed itinerary is available for download below but be advised this schedule is subject to change without notice.
