    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Do we have to get to Delhi by ourselves?

      Yes. Delhi would be the common meeting point. Our journey will commence from the capital but getting here will be your responsibility. Everything else post that will be taken care of by us.

    2. Where will we be staying?

      We will be supporting the locals and sharing experiences with them. We will be staying in different homestays and camps throughout the journey.

    3. What will be the mode of our transport?

      We will be using a tempo traveler which is the largest capacity of minibus available. In Ladakh, the transport options are very limited- either it’s an Innova or Scorpio or Tempo Traveller. We use a Tempo Traveller as it allows the entire group to travel together. It may not be the most comfortable drive in the world, but it’s the only horse that piles on that route. What we do for longer journeys is that we rotate the spots on the bus so that everyone gets the same experience. And yes, there will be plenty of stops for loo breaks and pictures.

    4. What is the difficulty level of rafting?

      Rafting will take place through Grad I and Grade II rapids. Professional guides will accompany us and you will be provided with all the necessary safety equipment from helmets to wet suits to life jackets.

    5. What kind of cycles will we be using from K-Top to Leh?

      We will be using professional mountain bikes by brands like Firefox. A safety vehicle will accompany us during this 3 hour cycle ride. So in case you want to opt out, you could hop into the safety

    6. How many people will be on the trip?

      We like to keep our trips small and intimate. So this trip will have a maximum of 10 people. For any further queries that you may have (or to stake claim to your spot on the trip), please feel free to get in touch.
