A mountainous area, surrounded by high hills of brown talus and snowy mountains that stand as sentinels in the sky, Ladakh lies to the northwest of the Indian sub-continent at altitudes of between 10,000 and 20,000 feet. The multicolored mountain ranges are ornamented with monasteries, temples, caves, castles, and stupas. The great river Indus flows through the middle of Ladakh and the capital Leh is at the center. During the winter, Ladakh is quite cold and there is much snow, but from May until October, it is a spectacularly beautiful place to visit. Beginning in Delhi, you will fly to Leh and do a series of day trips out of the Ladakhi capital to monasteries, palaces, and local homes, visit the spectacular Nubra Valley, raft the Indus River, and depending on timing, enjoy one of the many summer festivals.
Note that this is a general itinerary, and will be adapted to suit the particular festival being celebrated.
