Ladakh Explorations & Expeditions are our favorite series of events of the year! It gets exciting every year as we keep adding on some extra adventure! Ladakh in winters gives you a sight of amazing landscapes, scintillating mountains and trees covered with snow, frozen lakes, frozen waterfalls, stalactites and stalagmites at the entrance of rocky caves.

We will be driving on those long serene roads and completely off roads with views you will never see anywhere else; camping in the wilderness and creating everlasting memories! It is definitely an adventure of a lifetime!
