In the heart of the himalayas
A rugged land, known for being home to some of the world’s highest roads, Ladakh is the dream destination for an adventure off the beaten track.
This Indian region, nestled in the Himalayas, offers a variety of landscapes and wide-open spaces simply waiting to be explored. Interspersed with dizzyingly high summits, reaching up to 8,000m, Ladakh is spread out across magnificent lunar landscapes
and deep valleys, carved out by erosion
From Tibetan monasteries perched in the mountains to small remote villages set in the valleys, visiting Ladakh is a journey back in time which we invite you to experience in an original way.
12 of the best off-road motorbike, 4×4 & cycling routes
Designed like a roadbook, and illustrated with a multitude of maps and photos, this book is both a tool and guide for independent travellers who wish to discover, understand, and explore Ladakh. We offer in this book a selection of small, unexplored trails, to discover by motorbike, 4×4 or bicycle.
EXPLORE LADAKH is in no way a box standard tourist guide. Our guide has been designed for travellers searching for adventure and authentic experiences. Each and every trail in the book has been patiently explored, adventure by adventure, in the immensity of the himalayan landscape.
Instead of classical stops and by-the-book itineraries, we offer our readers an original format allowing you to create your trip yourself. With a perfect knowledge of the terrain, travellers can improvise their way, guided by what they fancy or who they meet, fully independently.
