We all form special bonds with places in our travels. Ladakh is one of those really special places. Even before we started offering trips in Ladakh we travelled extensively in the area. We fell in love with the place like most of us, its people welcomed us with warm hospitality and the rugged harsh landscape left a spot in our hearts.
We offered many trips actively in the area for the last few years. Sometime last year – we decided to stop offering ‘FIXED Departures’ due to many reasons that you know of. But our relationship with the land continues. The local people with whom we have shared much time have been some of the most endearing of them all. The bonds that we have formed are more than just working relationships and mutual respect. We are proud to say that they are family.
We still offer customised trips for smaller groups and these trips support our local friends who are not tour operators or hotel owners. They are locals who run their own taxis, run their little guesthouses and love their land and are proud of their identity. This is the little we can do to support them.
Our trips in Ladakh are special because of the people behind it – our local friends! They make sure you feel special.
This is our story of Ladakh. What is yours?
