Leh Tour Packages

A look at some photos of Leh Ladakh is enough to convey the sheer magnificence of this rough and rugged terrain. Steep and naked cliffs, vast sweeping landscapes, breathtaking altitudes, and glorious and exhausting trails make Ladakh a region that inspires adventure and nature lovers from all over the globe. The brilliance of the landscape lies in its depth and its scope- as far as eye can see, there are enchanting slopes set against the clear blue sky; slopes that seem to boast of their strength and beauty endlessly. To conquer these slopes is a desire that inflames many hearts and the views from their summit can enchant even the most pessimistic of people.

Leh, the capital of Ladakh, is the pitstop for all Ladakh adventures. The airport is located near the city and many tour operators and hotels are based in Leh. Leh is also ideally located close to all the important touristic spots around Ladakh and day-trips to monasteries and passes can easily be undertaken from the city. Beautiful places to visit in Leh always include a visit to the Nubra Valley, Shanti Stupa, Magnetic Hill, etc.

 

Leh Ladakh is a destination that will delight any tourist with its otherworldly beauty, and there are many off-beat ways in which you can enjoy it. Rent a jeep or a bike and explore the far-flung passes, monasteries, and villages; which make up important ingredients of Leh Tour Packages. Or hop onto a bicycle and poke around the hidden nooks and crannies’ inaccessible to motor vehicles. Camp under the stars in the magnificent valleys or scream with delight as you raft on wild rapids. Pack your camping bags and engage in long, multi-day treks across some of the most spellbinding terrains in the world. There is so much to do in Leh Ladakh, so much to experience in the midst of the silent mountains, so much to learn from the majestic terrain- that a trip to the region is not just a vacation but a pilgrimage for the soul.

    l
    Leh
    d6 Days n5 Nights

    About the tour:The Chadar trek is one of the most popular winter treks in India. Walking over the long unending distances on the frozen river is an exotic adventure that takes a lot of physical strength and courage to undertake. The challenges of the high-altitude terrain add to the challenge provided by the snow and ice all around. Trekking the Chadar trail is a difficult task but one that is worth every minute spent on it. You will be left with extremely wonderful memories that will leave you with a feeling of pride which will make itself felt every time you take up another challenging task.Trekking the Chadar trail requires a lot of preparation because the difficulty levels of the trek place lots of demands upon the trekker. Camping and food facilities must also be arranged because finding any provisions on the route is almost impossible. It is therefore best to take up a package that provides you with all these things. This Short Chadar Trek package provides a comprehensive experience which includes accommodation and food expenditure as well as a guide who helps you over the route. A porter will also be a part of the package. The 5 nights and 6 days you spend in Ladakh with this package will provide you with grand memories that will stay with you for life.

Be it the picturesque mountain peaks, azure lakes or the challenging trekking trails, this scenic valley is known for all. While during the summers, the region adorns the most vibrant colour of the nature, during the winters it is embraced with heavy snowfalls that cuts off the entire region from the rest of the world.- Nestled deep within the whirly passages of the snow-clad mountains, this frozen river also entices thousand of trekkers from different corners of the world. - Popularly known as the 'Chadar Trek' due to the formation of the thick blanket of the snow, it is considered as one of the challenging as well as tricky treks in the world. - In some places, there may be cracks in the ice and when this happens, the only way to continue with the trek is to hike through the snowy rocks and boulders beside the river. Quick Facts:Temperature: -15 to -20 degrees (during the day) and -25 to -35 degrees (during the night)Trekking Distance:  75kmMaximum Altitude: 11,123ftDifficulty Level: Difficult Airport: Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport, LehTips for Chadar trek1) Prepare your mind first: This is a difficult trek that comes with a lot of extremities. From the weather to physical requirement. Train your mind to expect and accept the sub-zero level. Do bear in mind that there is life which exists there as well; for centuries Chadar is used as the only way to commute to Leh during winters. Your mental strength will signal your body to withstand the cold climb.2) Be Warm: Next is to keep oneself warm as the temperature falls severely on this trek. To keep going and not be deterred by the weather conditions, use 4 layers for the Torso that includes ,a jacket and a wind sheeter which is waterproof and has a fleece lining. For the bottom, a base layer, thermal underpants and waterproof pants with a fleece lining, should suffice. Make sure your fleece and jackets have zips down the front so that you can unzip them as the day grows progressively warmer.3) Keep a woolen cap and gloves (a must).Essentially you need to sleep well during the night to keep you fresh for the next day of trek. Keep an insulating water bottle to keep your sleeping bag warm during the night. Use Silk liner inside your bags to keep it warm enough.4) Footwear: Hiking shoes + Gumboots At occasions, trekking on the Chadar involves wading through knee-deep cold water. Though hiking shoes are highly recommended, gumboots help keep your shoes and feet secure from the icy cold water. It is practically impossible to dry anything at Chadar, so gumboots are a compulsory and a crucial addition to the footwear.5) Expect sweet pain: The Chadar is a glossy, slippery sheet of ice and will never let you walk carelessly. But no matter how careful one is, everyone falls and slips more than once on the Chadar. If you fall, just get back up by rolling on your knees and keep walking with confidence. Gumboots might give you shoe bites, but you’ll get used to it as you walk.6) Observe and keep moving: The locals can give you a firsthand training of how to cross the lake on your foot. On a closer observation, you would notice that they walk fast and take Penguin like strides on the ice. As you watch them, you will learn their ways of manoeuvring around on the ice blanket and learn when it is wiser to wait than to carry on or the reverse.7) Keep your electronics warm: Extreme cold climate can ruin electronics. Hence keep them warm by keeping them safe by tucking them into your pockets closer to your body it will keep them warm and long-lasting.8) Protect your fingers and toes: In sub-zero temperatures, fingers and toes are the most exposed and can be frozen resulting in bad pain when camping. Carry waterproof woollen socks and gloves. An extra pair of socks would help as they gather moisture while wearing gumboots.9) Warming pads: Warming pads are very helpful for those who feel cold sooner than others. These are exothermic pads to be slipped in your gloves and socks. They release heat and keep you warm for up to 10 hours.Do's and Dont's on Chadar trekDo’s of Chadar Trek- Needless to say that one should inform one’s family before coming for this trek, so in case of any emergency, they can come for help.- The temperature extensively drops down in the region. Therefore, it is advisable to keep warm clothes and shoes at hand. The shoes should also be waterproof.- As there won’t be any pharmacies on our trek, please do carry required medications and a first aid kit, in case of any bruises or cuts.- The area of this trek has hardly any shop to stop for food or drinks, hence it is advisable to carry water and energy giving food like energy bars and other eateries to be had at regular intervals.

Thus, one should not litter anywhere and spoil the magnificence.- The wonderful waterfalls should not be contaminated by the use of shampoos and soaps. Thus one should avoid using them.

Pangong Lake

Rather, the most sought after tourist destination is Pangong Tso in Ladakh region. It is the highest among the high altitude lakes in India which is filled with saline water but provides some awe-struck moments to the visitors with the unbelievable phenomenon of changing colours quite a number of times a day.

The reflections of the towering Himalayan peaks in the water add more charm to the lake. Currently, Pangong Tso is the favorite location for tourists as the banks of the lake give soothing bed to relax and the nearby places are enhanced by the beauty of this particular lake. The quiet lake is 134 km in length and 5 km in width is situated at an altitude of 14270 meters. But the major share of the lake lies in the area of China. Now, its recognition is spread everywhere in the world because it is termed as a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention.

The highly saline water does not accommodate any water species not even micro-organisms. But the banks of the lake give space for several birds and animals very rarely seen in the other parts of India. It is an important breeding ground for many migratory birds as well.

Height: The lake is located at an altitude of 4250 meters above the sea level.

Location: Pangong Tso is easily accessible as it can be reached after a five hour drive from Leh and the travel would be on a rough and dramatic mountain road. You will cross the villages of Shey and Gya during the tour and go through Chang La as well.

Best time to visit: The months from May to September are the ideal time to visit the lake as the other seasons may cause challenges due to the heavy snowfall.

Nubra Valley

Something divine makes Nubra Valley close to heart and it is not an exaggeration but a fact that experienced and shared by the countless tourists visited the paradisiacal location in Jammu and Kashmir. Without touching the spectacular roads of Nubra Valley, a Ladakh tour will not be complete. The tri armed valley has Diskit Village as its capital. Ldumra, a magnificent name is the original name of the valley as the local scholars insist. Ldumra means Valley of Flowers. The large valley is formed after the merging of Shyok River with Nubra or Siachen River causing the separation of the Ladakh and the Karakoram Ranges. The valley is located 10000 feet that is 3048 meters above mean sea level and those who cross the Khardung La Pass can easily come to Nubra Valley from Leh.

Except the river beds, every other place in the valley shows scant vegetation and low precipitation levels. Most of the villages in the valley are occupied by Nubra skat speakers and in the villages, one can find lush greenery and farming which happen through the regular irrigation. Diskit is the place where native people are seen in abundance and Diskit Monastery is the entre of attraction as well. The Shyok River flowing on one side of Diskit has a captivating effect on the visitors. Nubra Valley unwinds a lot of surprising sights when you visit it and an unbelievable fact is that the valley was open to the public till Hunder until 2010. Beyond Hunder, it was the greener region in the lower altitude where the Turtuk village exists. Till 2010, the Government did not allow tourists to mesmerize themselves in the magnificent beauty of Turtuk where numerous apricot trees and other vegetation along with the tribal community were preserved as a virgin.

Height: 3048 meters above the sea level

Location: The paradisiacal Nubra Valley is located at a distance of 140 km from Leh and the main road access to the valley is through Khardung La pass where you have to show the photocopies of your travel permit to the soldiers camping.

Best time to visit: The months from June to September is the perfect period to visit Nubra Valley

Khardung La

Controversies regarding the proclamation that Khardung La is the highest motorable pass in the world is not yet diminished but Ladakh travelers still believe that it is the highest and most adventurous pass in the world. Despite the controversies, Khardung La keeps on attracting hundreds of adventure seekers every year, be it bikers, trekkers or visitors. Nestled amidst the most reverberating surrounding, the ‘Pass of Lower Castle’ is located at an altitude of 17582 feet. Near to the pass, the collection of awesome valleys will lure you and along with the natural extravaganzas, the Tibetan prayer flags are an additional charm.

The pass was constructed in the year of 1976 and later in 1988, it was opened to public and from then on, the pass was inviting uncountable bikers, trekkers and tourists. It is maintained by the Border roads Organization as the pass is highly significant and important to India because it was once used to carry supplies to the Siachen Glacier. Recently, Khardung La became the hot potato of the town with a happy news that a ten member team of visually impaired people is going to conquer the pass through cycling in 2017.

Height: Khardung La is located at an altitude of 5359 meters. But there is an incorrect proclamation on the signboards appear here saying that the height of the pass is 18379 feet.

Location: The highest motorable pass in Ladakh is lying about 39 kms away from Leh. By road, one can reach the pass. The first 24 kms of the road are paved and from there to the North Pullu check post, the 15 kms of the road are filled with loose rock, dirt and occasional rivulets formed after the melting of snow.

Tso Moriri Lake

It won’t be exceeding at all how much you describe the beauty of Tso Moriri in Ladakh, a highly protected lake in Changthang Region and a significant portion of Tso Moriri Wetland Conservation Reserve.  It is the largest of all high altitude lakes in India especially in Ladakh and is located at an altitude of 4522 meters above the sea level. The length comes to 26 km north to south and 3 to 5 km is the width and the water is wholly brackish. 

The water to feed the lake comes from the springs and melted snow from the nearby mountains. There are two major stream systems to lead the water to the lake. One in the north part of the lake and the other comes in the southwest part. Huge, extensive marshes are seen at both the entrances of the lake. Rupshu Valley, a breathtaking area is the guardian of Tso Moriri along with an array of the lofty Himalayan Mountains in the surrounding.

The number of people come to witness the beauty of this splendid lake is lesser when compared to that of Pangong Lake. It is because of the secluded location of the lake. Hence, it is a favorite home town for many migratory birds. They come to breed here especially birds like great- crested grebe, the brown-headed gull and the Brahmin duck. The rare Himalayan hares are also abundantly seen near the lake. Thus, the declaration of the lake as a reserved area is a right option to protect these species from extinction. Less human interference would keep their lives strong.

Height: The lake is situated at an altitude of 4522 meters.

Location: You can reach Tso Moriri via road from Leh. It is 150 kms away from Leh Airport. Kalka Railway station is the nearest one to the lake. You will get buses and taxis from the station as well.

This Buddhist prayer center is the most beloved attraction in Jammu and Kashmir. At a height of 4267 meters, the two storied stupa stands holding its head high and overlooks the bustling Leh town. The uneven mountain terrains in the surrounding gives the pagoda a remarkable shining.

And this is the unexplainable feature of Magnetic Hill that confuses the world of science. It is located on Leh-Kargil-Baltic Highway and on the east, the beautiful Sindhu River is flowing calmly. Near the hill there is a Sikh Gurudwara maintained by the Indian Army. Due to the natural attraction as well as the human architectural brilliance, the hill has gained popularity in a short term. 

Not just the vehicles hitting the road but the aircrafts and helicopters crossing the radius which Magnetic Hill comes in would feel the same magnetic effect.

    150 kilometres north of Leh lies the “Orchard of Ladakh”-the beautiful Nubra Valley with its lush grasslands and scenic mountain views. Mind-numbingly cold in the winters, the valley is a source of unending joy to travellers in the spring-filled summer months.

    Exploring the dune-like valley in the summer months on a camel or on a bicycle is delightful, and the gazing upon the star-spangled night skies is awe-inspiring. Camping in the Nubra Valley is also a very special activity.

    A tour of the Nubra Valley also includes visits to the Khardung La pass, the Diskit Gompa, Hunder village, Sumur village, Panamik, Terisha Tso among others. Trekking around the valley is an easy but rewarding experience. The range of beautiful experiences that Nubra Valley can provide travellers makes it a very special place in India. It is best explored between June and August.

  • What are the prices and timings to visit the snow leopard sanctuary in Leh? Is it open throughout the year?

    The Hemis High Altitude Wildlife Sanctuary is a world-famous spot for snow leopard viewing. The sanctuary has the highest concentration of snow leopards in the world, and the magnificent animals can be spotted frequently in the wild here.

    Though the sanctuary is open throughout the year, the best time to view snow leopards is from December to February. The sanctuary offers several good trekking routes from mid-June to mid-October.

  • Can I do a solo backpacking tour to Leh? What are the things to keep in mind?

    Yes, you can definitely go on a solo backpacking tour to Leh. The region is a peaceful one and the locals are friendly and hospitable for most part, so you will not face any troubles on that account. However, a solo backpacking tour of Leh Ladakh, while rewarding, is also a tricky trip, and several cautions need to be kept in mind.

    The climate and the terrain of Ladakh is the most challenging aspect of a trip to the region, but it should be of especial concern to a solo backpacker. Make sure you are well prepared to tackle any difficulties that come in your way. Always carry plentiful food and beverage supplies to keep you energised, and keep a first aid kit and oxygen cylinder with you at all times. But don’t carry too many things with you since traveling light is easier than lugging many bags along the road.

    The height and remoteness of the landscape also means that you are likely to lose your phone connection at many points. It would be wise to keep several operational sim cards on you, preferably by different providers, so that you have maximum chances of being connected to the world. Creating a detailed itinerary and handing over a copy of it to your loved ones is also a good way of ensuring that you are prepared against emergencies.

    Safety measures like pepper sprays and nail cutters should also be kept on hand just in case.

    Apart from this, a solo backpacking trip in Ladakh is a wonderful experience so enjoy every bit of it.

  • Which are the best campsites to stay in, during my Leh Ladakh tour?

    The diverse range of places where you can indulge in exotic camping and the variety of awe-inspiring sights that can be experienced here add to the magnificence of camping in the region, and make it a memorable experience. Some of the best campsites in Ladakh include,

First, I would like to say thank you to shyam@thrillophilia.com for their coordination and cooperation.The trip was well planned and executed extremely well by the tour operators, I am very happy with the services provided by thrillophilia during this trek. 1) Our trek leaders Salman and Stenzin are really a wonderful Guys, they were very helpful and supportive all the time during trekking.Other staff members were also supportive and helpful. 2) Food quality and quantity was good. 3) Accommodation was good, camps were in good shape, neat and clean and quite spacious. Let's review the Trek. No doubt Stok trek was awesome as well as difficult. It would not be correct if I will say Stok trek is the most beautiful trek ???? but there is something which makes this trek different from all other treks and which is the main reason to attract tourist from every corner of the word, that is its height. At 20,500 feet Stok Kangri is the highest trekkable summit in India (6,153 m), what google says but when I googled it bit more and try to find if there is any other trek exist in this word which is above Stok, I did not get any information so I assume this is the highest trekkable summit in world ???? Highlights of this Trek 1) Trekking till base camp is not very tiring, which itself a big achievement as you would be able to achieve the height of 16300 feet ???? and the best part what I found in this trek is “you don’t need to walk too many hours to reach base camp” 2-4 hours walk a day is max you will walk. 2) Leh treks are totally different from Himachal and Uttrakhand treks in terms of scenic beauty, it’s a different experience, you would be able to see some splendid views of the Stok mountain ranges. 3) The last day “Summit day” will give you a totally different experience. You start your trek at night time which generally don’t happen in other treks. Moreover, you will get a chance to do snow trekking in summers as well “Only in summit Day”. Here is a great saying "the best view comes after the hardest climb" Very True!!! Preparation: I should say this is not a trek for first time trekkers but still if someone wants to give a try, Start your preparation at least 2 months before this trek as last day “Summit Day” is really a challenging one, compare to other days where you have to just walk 2-4 hours max here on final day you have to walk for a 12 – 14 hours and trekking at night on Snow is bit tricky task and it becomes more challenging when you have to walk by putting Crampons on your shoes. a) Aim for 5 km running in 30 minutes b) Do breathing exercise which helps you a lot during this trek especially. c) Drink as much as water you can.

To start with I had the most adventurous ride of a lifetime. Bike trip allows you to experience the best just in front of your eyes and Manali to Leh was one of my dream destination. The word that follows will be a huge WOW. Be it the surroundings or the roads the highway connecting Manali to Leh is brilliant. The roads are quite tedious, but that also means that more the adventure and more the fun. Everything was well organized from our accommodation to food. I went with my 2 friends and once we reached there we were provided with our bikes. Another best thing was that the fuel was included in the package. This is a must trip for the bikers.

The beauty of the landscapes of this destination is something that blew my mind the second I landed. Coupled with the chill climate this was the perfect trip! The people I met were amazing and the guides were so helpful and informative always keeping us engaged in fun activities. And the best part came when we reached Nubra valley via Khardung La pass and enjoyed a joyful camel ride. And I was awestruck by the beauty of the Pangong Lake as it slowly changed its colours. Amazing trip!! :)

Great trip! The rooms were good and so was our food. We covered all the places as mentioned in the package. We also visited some of the monasteries which revived us all at once. The sight of Nubra valleys was the best which we drove via Khardungla Pass. My buddies and I enjoyed the camel ride in Nubra valley. Although it was a bit cold but the surroundings around us made us forget everything. I will remember this trip as it was a trip with lots of memories. Thanks!

Fantabulous time spent in the lap of the mountains, our entire cycling group had gone together and we enjoyed immensely. The cycling trip was really difficult at some time but the feel of it was really good. so positivity and cycling through high passes and snow clad peaks was really good. even the camping was good. after a long day of cycling they served us really good food everyday . The group leaders were also very helpful and were able to handle the fairly large group with utmost ease.

I think it was one of the best trips which I had in last 4 years. Our trip from Manali to Leh was of 12 days and it was an adventurous one. We were provided with all the facilities. Our bikes were provided to us and also a mechanic for our trip. Most of all your fuel is included in this package which is super good. We covered all the amazing passes like Keylong, Khardungla pass etc. The sight around the Pangong Lake was one of kind. And ya we did click a lot of pictures. This trip is a must do for the bikers as well as the nature lovers.

Two days of the Markha Valley trekking was spent for acclimatisation. Although, it is really boring, it was very crucial for a hale and healthy trek ahead. In this particular time, we visited unravel monasteries, the museum, some forts, and the local market place. We also got to visit the Leh Palace, which was gigantic. After this we crossed over Ganda La which was 4800 m and arrived at the beautiful Markha Village. This village is super green and lively. While all these seem serene and romantic, the thrilling part of our trek included camping beside a rippling stream, the trek itself, we getting the astonishing view of Kangyatze Peak. Each day was unique and fun in its own way.

Rougher dirt tracks needs to be covered. Along with this we also made some very tough climbs. The descents were gut-wrenching yet interesting. If you think that it is very stressful, the distance we covered were somewhat less. It almost ranged from 40 to 80 km on an average. However, the traversing altitudes were over 4000 m. To be honest, if you are not an avid cycler, this can be really tedious and dangerous too. Also, with the altitude and weather conditions, I felt quite dizzy and easily dehydrated. If you are planning to do this, make sure to have great physical fitness. That all being said, this trip was fruitful.

It was a truly amazing experience as we rode on our bikes from Manali to Leh. From the snowy mountains to the vast green trees covered with snow makes everything perfect for us. We also had a back up bike and 01 backup jeep to carry luggage and mechanic. While riding my bike broke down near the Tsomoriri Lake. But the backup mechanic was real in dealing with the issue and it was good to go again. While riding you will be riding at a speed of 120-130 on the highways. Also, be careful while you ride in the roads of Leh passes. It was really an unforgettable experience for us.
