We had a wonderful experience with Thrillophilia Out tour was Leh-Ladakh 6N7D, which includes Leh Sightseen, Nubra Valley Overnight Stay, Pangong Overnight Night. 1. First of all you should know that Thrillophilia doesn't have its own Travel Team. Thrillophilia actually linked up with several local Travel Agency. Once your Tour is booked Thrillophilia tagged one local Travel Agency for your Tour and that particular travel agency will take care of your entire tour. Our travel manager is Lobzang Tseldon. She is very helpful and you will not face any problem in your entire tour. 1. Hotel provided in Leh: Ladakh Heights. The hotel was very good,neat and clean.It is a new hotel so you don't found any pics in the internet. But lobzang will send you the pics of the Hotel. There is a canteen within the hotel where you will be having complimentary breakfast and dinner. Non Vegetarian please let Lobzang know that you want non-veg items as well.they generally prepare veg items only.but on request they will provide you omlette in breakfast and chicken/mutton in dinner. So if anyone wants to book Thrillophilia please ask Thrillophilia to tag you to the travel agency that offers non veg items too. The Hotel Ladakh Heights is a bit far from the main city but don't worry Lobzang will provide you car for visit to Leh market whenever required and she will not charge you for that. You will get a beautiful view from this hotel but if you want to stay near the main city you will not get any view from the hotel. 2. The stay at Nubra Valley was awesome. They have Royal Camp in Nubhra and it's is a nature-friendly camp. You will love it, I can guarantee you. 3. They stay at Pangong was okay. You can understand that at that altitude you will not get luxury.so the camp provided at Pangong was good for 1 night stay. Overall my experience with Thrillophilia was very good. We enjoyed a lot. Thanks a lot to Lobzang Tseldon for the wonderful arrangements of our tour.

Leh-Ladakh – Dream Come True!!! (Bucket List) No words can describe the serenity and tranquility that you get to see in Ladakh, it is worth your money and more… life time memories, thrilling experience driving through rough terrain our own Grand Canyon, the grandeur of Monasteries, awestruck mountains and valleys, passing through worlds highest motorable road (khardung-la, Chang-la), Pangong Tso the biggest salt water lake in the world, this dream wouldn’t have been achieved if it wasn’t for the Thrillophilia team. The whole package is organized in such a way that they have covered as many places as possible in a span of 6 days and give you ample time to enjoy the trip at leisure, the silence of the valley, scenic beauty & nature. The accommodation arrangements were beyond expectations, hygienic, modern and well equipped. Airport pick & drop facility, travelling within the city or even to other locations, everything has been a wonderful experience and taken care off. Food provided is homely and includes both Veg & Non-Veg. Nothing can beat having authentic Ladakhi lunch and their butter tea ???? Over all the whole experience has been phenomenal and would recommend this package to solo travelers, girl-gangs, family and everyone ???? It’s safe and definitely worth your time and run for money. A Big Shout out to our tour manager Ms. Lobzang, Mr. Dorjee, Ms. Angmo and the entire staff, our driver Habbib and our Thrillophilia organisers Pradeep and Rizwan!!!! Kuddos team, keep going…!!!

I can bet it would be a lifetime experience for everyone. It was one of the best decisions of my life to spend my money on this trip. I would really like to thank MR Thupstan Sakalzang our local operator, who owns the best camp in nubra valley. I want give a big shout out to all the staff there at leh. They know what they are doing and thats the thing you want before anything in a tour package. Below was our itinerary: 2 days leh sightseeing and stay, 1 night stay at nubra valley, 1-night stay at Pangong lake, 2 days stay and remaining sightseeing in leh . We all loved it . We were a group of 5 girls and one guy and we had a blast! I just loved every bit of it.

Leh- Ladakh 6nights 7days trip.it was my 1st tour with an organisation and it was an awesome experienced.Got to meet with new friends from different places. Good hotel and stay in all places especially hotel staff they were very friendly and help us in all that we need. The driver are very good and they were very cooperative. The operator was very responsible for our group safety and health issues and gave us adequate information before we move out of Leh city and thanks to that we were able to take precautions and nothing bad happen to the whole group.The tent stay at nubra valley was awesome,at pangong it was good but not as nubra valley,but still I appreciate the arrangement at pangong.We are very lucky I guess to get snowfall during September and had more fun due to that.Thanks to thrillophilia and the team for this great adventure for which it will remain in my mind forever.

Booking a trip to Laddakh has been long due for me and my sister so you can estimate the level of expectations and specifications we must've got while booking it lol. Thankfully the arrangements by Thrillophilia team lived upto our expectations and even exceeded them at times! Starting from landing in Leh and getting acclimatized to the "weather" followed by being briefed by our Thrillophilia coordinator Rizwan about upcoming thrilling journey as well as Dos and Donts really geared us up for the days to come. Staff at Hotel Kangsing where we stayed in Leh have been quite welcoming however the breakfast options could definitely be improved :P Our driver has been quite a pro throughout swiftly taking us via Khardungla to Nubra where we literally fell in love with our camping arrangements - awesome food, best service - accompanied with double rainbow at Hunder sand dunes! The route to Pangong has been quite tricky with water streaming through unexpectedly blocking our way (thanks to Bob the builder guy who helped paving our way lol). Standing by Pangong to watch the sun set was mystical in itself. It was indeed surprising to have the stay and food arrangements in the middle of nowhere - hats off to the locals who makes it possible for all the tourists visiting Pangong! Can't forget to mention about the sustainability lessons learnt from SECMOL school visit as well as the peace inducing Shanti Stupa visit. Overall it was indeed thrilling to witness different aspects of the magical land called Laddakh with Team Thrillophilia!

I really dont know how to put this in words.. but still i will try to.. i really believe in this quote "agar kisi chiz ko shiddhat se chaho toh puri kaynat tumhari vaat lagane main lag jaati hai"... hahhaha.. that's what happened when section 370was announced and it rained over my parade including on my 5 year bucket list, 3 months prior bookings to the heaven on earth ladhak.. the last shangri-la.. but itni shiddat se maine tumhe paane ki koshish ki hai ki har zarre ne (including thrillophilia) ne mujhe tumse milane ki shajish ki hai” i had booked myself with 2 of my girl gang to leh- kargil -srinagar. which later assessing the situation we had to keep it to a leh to leh trip. there is no doubt about the hospitality thrilophilia serves.. if ladhak is land of mystic beauty.. they added their own charm to it.. Starting from Amit explaining us and helping close the itenary and always available to assist us in such tense situation in srinagar and leh.. the on ground support by Pradeep was commendable.. making us feel warm in the cold weather there. he gave us all the Dos and Donts.. Our stay was so cozy at Basera Inn.. our local guide salamat has great team of people.. Must mention about the tour guide we were alloted Altaf.. he was really a gem of person.. so calm and was really fun person around.. he made us explore the beautiful and magnificent landscapes of ladhak. if a trip on mind... thrillophilia on mobile search.. 5 stars and whistles ????

    Be it for the arid landscape or the mighty Himalayas or the ancient monasteries or the turquoise lakes, Ladakh is inevitably on the top of every traveller’s wish list.

    Dive into the tranquillity of the magnificent Pangong Lake
    Remember the last scene in 3 Idiots where the idiots and Piya reunite. Remember the picture-perfect lake that was more charismatic than any other thing going on on the screen. That lake is the Pangong Lake! Situated at an altitude of 14,000 ft, this long and narrow lake extends from India to Tibet and is just 160 kilometers away from Ladakh. It boasts of being one of the largest salt-water lakes in Asia. What adds to the beauty of the lake is that it is landlocked and during winters the blue hue of the water turns white, as the lake freezes. The solidified lake then becomes the venue for an ice skating festival, visited by skaters from all around the globe. The drive to Pangong lake itself is a visual treat. Don’t forget to capture some of the best sceneries you’ll ever see.

    Magnetic Hill will always attract you
    Magnetic Hill is a "gravity hill" located in Ladakh. The layout of the area and surrounding slopes creates an optical illusion that the downhill road is actually an uphill road. Cars and the other objects on hill could give the impression of rolling "uphill" defying the gravity while they, in fact, roll down the hill. Amazing isn’t it. People from all over the world are attracted to this place to experience this unique phenomenon of nature.

    Shanti Stupa-

    For some “Inner-Shanti” Shanti Stupa is a Buddhist white-domed sacred shrine which is situated on a hilltop in Chanspa in Leh. It holds the relics of the Buddha at its base. Not only the religious significance of the Stupa makes it a tourist attraction but also its location which provides the mesmerizing panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. It was built as a monument to celebrate 2500 years of Buddhism and sure sets an impression on its visitors’ minds.

    Visit to Drass Valley

    The Drass Valley is the second coldest inhabited destination around the world. Don’t forget to pack your woollens before you visit this chilling place. Discover the beauty in barren brown mountains. Spend the night at Kargil Kargil lies near the LOC facing the Pakistan-administered region of Gilgit-Baltistan to the north, and the Jammu and Kashmir divisions to the west. Visit the Drass War Memorial, which is a small monument that commemorates the historic success of Kargil War of 1999. Spend some time here remembering the martyrs who sacrificed their lives to prevent us from intruders. Also, you can visit the Sani, Rangdum and Phutkal monasteries. It is also a perfect place for camping at night before moving forward your journey to explore other attractive places around Leh.

    Camel Safari for the child in you

    Safari on a double-humped camel in Ladakh is an absolute adventure. The shabby double-humped Bactrian camels, in olden days were the main mode of transport on the Ladakh-Yarkhand (Turkmanistan) trade and even now you can enjoy this as a treat. The Safari goes along the soft white sandy deserts with rolling sand dunes.

  12. Is there anything important while visiting monasteries and temples in Ladakh?

    While mostly it is about our discretion and mannerism that goes along while visiting any religious place, here are a few things that should be kept in mind while on a visit to the monasteries and temples in Ladakh. A decent dress code is a mandate and also, one is required to ask permission before entering the main prayer hall. There are a few monasteries that do not allow women to enter the prayer area so seeking permission would save you from embarrassment. Drinking, smoking and drugs are a big no and such practices are not entertained by the inmates of the monasteries in any case. Prevention is better than cure and so one must keep in mind what activities should be avoided according to one’s own intellect.
  13. What should I take as a souvenir from Ladakh?

    There are many items that can be bought from Ladakh like Pashmina shawls, Tibetan Silver jewelry, Buddhist masks, Thangka paintings, prayer wheels and apricots. But there is one thing you cannot leave Ladakh without- Tibetan prayer flags. The ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’ flags are a good omen to be received as gifts which make them the perfect souvenirs for you and your loved ones. These flags carry the prayers through the wind and are not meant to be still. These colorful wings are sure to bring wellbeing in your life thus proving to be the best souvenir a place can offer.

    A lot of hotels having rooms ranging from average to high class are available. Various resorts are also available for stay. Tents are also available for the night stay or you can bring your own tents too. But the most economical and welcoming stay you can anticipate while in Ladakh is in monasteries. Many monasteries these days have opened up to welcoming tourists as their inmates. There one can soak in the tradition and culture of the monks and nuns while maybe digging in to learn more about Buddhism. There can be instances when amenities feel a bit out of place but then the panoramic view of the mountains from your lodging window would calm anybody’s materialistic senses down.
  16. What kind of tourist vehicles are found in this region?

    There is a good fleet of tourist vehicles in Leh and Ladakh region. Primarily, it’s a tourist place, but, being highly mountainous, one cannot find a lot of public transportation like buses or trains. But, tourist vehicles are quite common and can easily be hired to travel to diverse locations and tourist destinations. These include Toyota Qualis, Innova, Mahindra Scorpio, Tata Sumo and many more.
  17. Will there be sufficient space to carry the luggage over the Tempo/INNOVA for all the co-travelers?

    If you are travelling with co-passengers in a shared taxi, tempo or INNOVA, you need to make sure whether your companions have more luggage or less. So, it is advisable to travel only if the luggage of all the passengers can be accommodated comfortably in the vehicle as there will be limited space for adjusting the luggage after providing seats to the travellers.
  18. Will the driver be able to speak in English?

    The driver will be able to understand English. But, you should be ready for the broken English.
  19. Will we be accompanied by a Tour Guide or Manager?

    The availability of a tour guide or a manager depends majorly on the package you select for your trip. As all of us know, different vendors and packages have different policies and amenities, though, it is always advisable to book a package which includes a tour guide or manager to experience the tranquility of the region the most. Also, the terrain you are looking forward to explore is as scary as it is beautiful. So it would be great if you are able to take along somebody who could enlighten you about every pro and con of the place
  20. Can I take my children along with me?

    Yes, you can take your small kids with you. There are few basic precautions you need to follow. Follow proper medical procedures in order to check whether the child accompanying you is completely healthy or needs some medical attention. In case the child is a dependent one, carry proper medicines and plan itinerary accordingly. Carry a lot of warm clothes and take care of the challenges faced due to weather on high altitudes.
  21. What will be the facility for water and food? Do I need to carry some along with me?

    Throughout the trip, bottled water will be available to you, even in the remote locations. Also, there are Dhabas and many Maggi joints on the way. You can easily get tea and biscuits.
  22. How cold it will be in Ladakh?

    Ladakh is a high altitude desert area and called Little Tibet. Tourist season starts from April to the second week of October.

    • July – August: 10 – 20 Degree Celsius 
    • September: 15 – 10 Degree Celsius 
    • Oct – Dec: 10 – Minus 15 Degree Celsius 
    • Dec – March: Minus 35 to 0 Degree Celsius 

    No rain is expected in the region as this is a rain shadow area but in last few years it’s raining and sometimes heavily raining during the monsoon – July, and August.
  23. What sort of clothes should I wear during the trip?

    Being a cold desert, Ladakh experiences extreme fluctuations of temperature between day and nights and sometimes within the same day itself. Summer days tend to warm with temperatures ranging between 33-40 degree centigrade but nighttime temperatures even in summer can dip to less single digit numbers. Winter temperatures remain consistently below zero so you need to be padded up at all times to avoid being bitten by the cold winds. While winter packing will require a lot more thermals as well as down jackets to be packed along with insulated socks, summer packing will involve more of multiple layers of clothes.

    The choice of clothes also differs according to the kind of trip to take and activities you plan to do. If you plan to bike to Leh, for instance, you need to pack in a lot more of outerwear, down windproof jacket is a must especially if you are crossing high passes like Khardung La, sturdy shoes, preferably gum boots and warm socks so that you can change quickly in case your feet get wet while crossing a water puddle, but if you are planning to fly down to Leh in summer, cotton clothes in plenty and couple of light jackets should be enough.
  24. How fit should I be for a Ladakh trip?

    As the altitude keeps on increasing, the air starts getting thinner. Aerobic fitness is required to cope up with the decreasing level of Oxygen. Endurance training is a must to defy gravity and walking for a long duration on a steep slope with a rucksack/day-pack.
  25. What are the various symptoms of High Altitude sickness? How long does I will take to get acclimatize in Ladakh?

    Early symptoms of altitude sickness include Headaches, fatigue, and insomnia. Later symptoms include Shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, respiratory failure and cerebral edema. It takes approximately 24 hours to get acclimatze in Ladakh.
  26. What is Local Cuisine of Ladakh?

    Though, one can relish a variety of cuisines in Ladakh, such as Continental, Chinese, Korean and Tibetan, but, the local Ladakhi food, which majorly carries the flavour of nuts and spices is also very famous among the tourists. Some of the best Ladakhi dishes include

    Thukpa, which is a soup that mainly contains vegetables and noodles.

    Chang, which is an indigenous brew of Ladakh. Chang is prepared by fermenting the miller with yeast in the cylindrical porcelain pots.

    Butter tea is the signature Ladakh tea, which is prepared by adding salt and butter to the boiling milk.

    Khambir is the traditional bread of Ladakh which is prepared in the pan shape and is majorly served with the butter tea.

    Skyu, which is prepared from the kneaded thumb size dough of wheat flour. It is generally served with vegetables or meat.

    The other vegetarian specialities of the Ladakh include korma sag, dum aloo, shaman, veg momos, apricot jam and lotus root, etc.

    The non-vegetarian specialties subsume methi korma, marchwangan korma (hot mutton curry), yakhni and tabaq naat (fried ribs dish), rista (rice balls in sauce with les meat and less spices), rogan josh, yaknee (a dish similar to rogan josh), gushtaba (spiced and pounded meat balls) and non-veg momos.
  27. What kind of eatables should I consume in Ladakh?

    It is strictly advisable to consume carbohydrate rich diet in order to get the requisite amount of nutrients for the body. Intake of ORS water in plenty along with juice, soup, milk, tea and other fluids is helpful in keeping the body hydrated. Consumption of too much of black tea, coffee or plain water should be avoided. In order to maintain a normal level of oxygen in the blood, water should be flavoured with garlic. Consuming plain water on a large scale can cause vomiting or cerebral edema.
  28. Is it advisable to drink and smoke in Ladakh?

    At high altitudes, oxygen level decreases, oxygen intake becomes less and rate of breathing becomes higher. Taking alcohol, antidepressant drugs, smoking etc can cause respiratory troubles and several other health hazards. Therefore, it is advisable to avoid drinking and smoking in Ladakh.
  29. Can you please tell about the availability of Hot water & electricity at all the locations?

    Hot water and electricity are easily available at a considerable number of places. You needn’t worry about them most of the time. But at Pangong, you’ll find people surviving on solar energy only. The tapped solar energy is used for heating water and lighting purposes and during the night, you’ll have to survive on starlight if you’re not carrying proper lighting materials along with you there
  30. What network services are best in Ladakh?

    You need to keep in mind that you carry a postpaid SIM with you since prepaid connections don’t work there. The best you can find in terms of connectivity in Ladakh are Airtel and BSNL services. This too can be anticipated only in the city. You might call yourself very lucky if you get a good network signal outside the city since the network signals outside the city have a really bad reputation. The internet also would be missed because of the low network strength.
