Ladakh

Of Lamas and monasteries, butter tea and gently grunting yaks, there's much more to Ladakh than just spectacular scenery and deep blue lakes. Made famous by the odd Bollywood movie every now and then, most of Ladakh still remains largely unexplored. un[travel] Ladakh for its gompas and stupas, for walking to the turquoise Indus as it meets the muddy Zanskar and for its lovely silences that just don't need to be filled. Spend a morning in prayer with monks at Thiksey or go horse riding beside Pangong Tso and come back with equally memorable photographs.

Things to do

Bonfire by the lake-Yes, the Pangong Tso looks beautiful throughout the day but is just as spectacular under the starlit sky. Chilly winds tend to have the night temperature drop rather drastically, and there's no better way to spend the evening than by a bonfire.

Leh Heritage Walk-A walk through the city, the heritage walk explores the corners and crevices, traces history and art across this ancient town with frequent stops to sample local flavour. Clearly the Namgyal dynasty's last holding before the Dogras took over in the 19th century, walk through the old city and old residences of ministers and artisans of the king.

Rafting-Zanskar-Essentially cut off from the rest of the world in winter (thanks largely to unreliable road access because of the weather), Zanskar is a huge must-visit if you're here in Summer. Rafting, anywhere in the world, is a super adrenaline-charged activity that nobody can get enough of. Rafting on the mighty Zanskar, however, takes this to a whole new level.

We truly had an experience of a lifetime and I would love to go back again. In all honesty, I'm still not over the exhilaration of the past couple of weeks and it's getting quite difficult coping back to my routine. Big shout out to untravel's entire team for giving us the attention consistently before, during and after the trip. We knew we were in good hands when your team, especially Atul would personally get in touch to ensure the trip was going well and would address any issues in no time.We are glad you have a great team in Leh as well without whom the travel experience would have been left incomplete. Believe me when I say, we all have been recommending un[travel] with a special mention of your team in Leh including Nurboo and Punchuk and even the hotel where we stayed. I'm intending on publishing a Travel blog and would like to make a mention of your team. In addition, I would be happy to share any footage I have on your social media. I'm taking some time to arrange them but it should be ready within a week. I shall get in touch with you in the coming days to get some idea on how would you like me to share this on digital media.Thank you un[travel]!

Ladakh was indeed a beautiful experience, which I believe has to be cherished time and over again. Considering the terrain and the adverse weather conditions untravel executed my plan well in terms of logistic support and accommodation. The local support, Nurboo in particular, was quick in his turnaround time and was very helpful. Keep up the good work and all the best.

Best time to visit June to September

Between late June and mid September, high snow-bound passes remain open and temperatures are pleasant enough for a couple of hours without a sweater.

Expect regular snowfall intervals by the end of October right through to March.Winters, however, are harsh with most places inaccessible thanks to abundant snow.
