Description

Ladakh is a region in the north of India known for its nature and culture. It is located near the Himalayas and is often called Little Tibet due to its monasteries and the spiritual lifestyle of its inhabitants. And I would like for you to come and discover this wonderful region along with other central points of interest on this 21-day trek in India.

During this 3 week tour, you will have the chance to discover the cities of New Delhi, Old Delhi and Leh in the Ladakh region. We’ll visit several different monasteries in these areas as well, such as the Hemis, the Thiksey, the Spituk, and the Lamayuru. Another incredible highlight of this trip will be visiting the world famous Taj Mahal, as well as the Agra Fort in the city of Agra

To immerse yourself in this culture means also to go through the most incredible landscapes with snow-covered peaks and green oasis. For a more detailed breakdown of this trip, please take a look at the itinerary below for more information about the activities you will get to enjoy.

This trip is not challenging, but you should be in good physical condition. The reason being, our daily treks will range from 4 to 5 and a half hours long. On one of the days, we’ll even have a 7 and a half hour trek. So keep that in mind if you want to join this trip. Also, take into account that different activities can be arranged according to the participant’s wishes.

If you are interested in this fantastic cultural trek in India, please send me a request! I will be happy to guide you across this unique area!

I can also lead you on another touring adventure in northern India on this 3 week trip through Zanskar region.

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide
I come from Marseille and I found my passion for mountaineering very early, climbing Les Calanques, some mountains in the Verdon region and in the Alps. I got my IFMGA (mountain guide) certificate in 1983 and my ski instructor license in 1985.
I brought my clients on many summits of the Alps and went abroad to discover the world. I went skiing, climbing, mountaineering… in Morocco, Norway, Algeria (Hoggar), Yosemite (El Capitan) and Nepal. I discovered this passion for travelling and started to organize my first trips with my clients. In the late 80’, I went to the Annapurna Sanctuary and I did several ascents in Peru (Pisco, Yanapatcha and Huascaran). In the 90’, I did several trips in Nepal (Helambu, Langtang…).
I then kept on and further explored the world with my clients: Rolwaling traverse (Perchamo, Mera Peak Mingbo La), the summits of Yala Peak and the Yana Kanga, Patagonia (in Argentina), Manaslu tour in Nepal, Meso Kanto La, Mustang, Atacama desert in chili and many others.
I like bringing my clients mountaineering in summer and ski touring / heliskiing in winter.
Get in touch with me and let's discuss about your next guiding tour !
