Step Back In Time In The Remote Himalaya
Cradled between the world's highest mountain ranges on the edge of the Tibetan Plateau, Ladakh means ‘land of many passes’. Located in a hidden corner of northern India, Ladakh is one of the least populated areas of the Himalaya. Landing in Leh, the capital of Ladakh, is like stepping back to a time when lives were lived according to the seasons and the scriptures, and the outside world is far away.
Visit picturesque white-washed monasteries perched atop rocky hills and mountains, where Buddhist philosophy is taught and debated. Trek amid breathtaking landscapes and experience the rich culture of Ladakh. Experience the warm hospitality of the local Ladakhi people.
Time your visit to coincide with a festival, when Ladakh comes alive and people from all over the area converge to celebrate their rich cultural heritage. Visit the picture-perfect Thiksey Monastery and the spectacular Chemrey Monastery, sitting high above fields of barley. Whichever direction you go in Ladakh, jagged mountain peaks and wide glacial valleys lie on the horizon.
The team at Beyond The Clouds have found some real gems for you to stay in, on the banks of the Indus River, in off-the-beaten-track villages and in the historic heart of Leh. From simple Ladakhi homestays to boutique hotels, we keep your comfort in mind while offering an authentic experience.
Combine the highlights of Ladakh with a trek, practice yoga, join a Ladakhi cooking lesson or let us tailor-make a personalised itinerary to suit your needs. Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple, or in a group; whether you are interested in walking, trekking, festivals or culture, the Beyond The Clouds team will be delighted to put together the perfect itinerary just for you.
