What do we all do on a Sunday? Wake up late, have an elaborate breakfast, watch movies, catch up with friends, family or simply just laze around. This Sunday, let’s do something different. Add some spice, some adventure and fun to it.. Today, plan your trip to Ladakh. Yes, Ladakh – The Land of High Passes. One of India’s most spectacular places.
Ladakh is famous for its remote mountains and raw beauty. Its unique flora, fauna and wild life gives that majestic feel to the whole place. Not just its rough terrain, natural beauty that will encapsulate you but the silence of this region, and the spiritual vibrations of this place will transport you to another realm.
Ladakh is a complete package. Those looking for some adrenaline rush, for them there are many activities such as trekking, rafting, yak ride, double-humped camel ride, ATV biking, those seeking silence there are countless ancient Monasteries in the whole region. One can even spend some time with the Monks there, chanting and meditating.
For nature enthusiasts the whole of Ladakh, every nook and corner offers such picturesque views that it will enthrall nature lovers and also photographers. Capturing Ladakh is truly a photographer’s delight. A great place for food explorers. For them it surely is a gastronomical delight as Ladakh’s traditional food offers such flavours and is packed with health.
Where Ladakh offers everything to people from all walks of life, at the same time it also is a place for people from all age groups.
With all the information in, now let’s plan the itinerary. The first day is full of excitement, but let’s not forget this terrain is a bit different. Acclimatisation helps the body to adapt with the environment as the region is low in oxygen. At least 2 days rest is recommended. Always good to just be in the hotel. A good rest will help you enjoy your trip to the fullest.
The days in the itinerary should be properly distributed, keeping the direction in mind. So if travelling Northwards then do not club a place from some far away region. Travelling distance is also a major factor to keep in mind. Your journey should not be tiresome and nor should it be long. Sometimes kids and elders are travelling too. Whether will they be able to travel that much or not… all this needs to be planed or discussed with your travel club.
When travelling always carry light, pack some medicines especially when travelling to such areas. You can always consult your doctor before coming to Ladakh. Make sure that you carry some snacks while exploring in and around Ladakh. Such as chocolates, pop corn, dry fruits, and water. They help in acclimatization.
Get your stuff packed, map ready, mark your route, and get started to travel to Ladakh. Well, we are going in June, why don’t you join us!0
