Overland Cultural Tour in the North Western Himalayas

This is a classical tour which covers the best of Kashmir & Ladakh & is also a photographer’s delight. No where in the Himalayas do you see such dramatic changes in landscape – Kashmir with it’s lush green scenery with beautiful lakes & the stark barren but supremely beautiful ladakh. Srinagar’s waterways with their own quaint lifestyle, the unique Houseboat, the blossoming gardens, watersports activities, shopping for lovingly hand-crafted souvenirs and the nearby resorts make it a cherished spot among those looking for a memorable holiday. Ladakh is a land abounding in awesome physical features, set in an enormous and spectacular environment. Bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Karakoram in the north and the Great Himalaya in the south, it is traversed by two other parallel chains, the Ladakh Range and the Zanskar Range.

The tour is also a cultural treat as it takes you through the unique Kashmiri Islamic lifestyle (Srinagar is built on the banks of River Jehlum & the magnificient Dal lake) to Ladakh’s lamaistic Mahayana Buddhism life (the faces and physique of the Ladakhis, and the clothes they wear, are more akin to those of Tibet and Central Asia than of India) revolving around the village monastery. Accommodation in unique floating on the Dal Lake hoseboats has a unique charm to itself. Get treated to the lip smacking yet unusual Kashmiri cuisine – wazwan in most romantic settings. The road journey takes you through some extraordinary places like Kargil & Drass. An adventure of a lifetime !
