This guide gives detailed description of eight separate treks across a harsh environment of high mountain passes and remote Buddhist monasteries. Each trek is broken down into multiple stages, and has information on difficulty, available accommodation and access, as well as the many combinations and alternative routes open to exploration.
Ladakh, at the northern tip of India, has developed a strong trekking culture over recent years for adventurous trekkers. Trekking in this remote, high-altitude region is extremely challenging, as paths are not signed and there are only a limited number of villages. However, its magnificent landscape (a huge area full of limitless trekking possibilites), hospitable people, rich heritage and limited number of tourists make Ladakh an amazing destination.
