What people say

"On the TOP of my list, get ready to feel at home by the generosity of the locals and be blown away by some captivating, magical locations in Leh-Ladakh, This is exactly where I fell in love with traveling and knew I was never gonna be the same again! At an altitude of 11500ft, Leh-the capital of Ladakh, serves you with smiling faces, humble people, cute-naughty local kids, and yumminess of momos & thukpas at dirt cheap prices. In the city centre and on the outskirts, lie tons of undiscovered roads filled with natural beauty and a bunch of Tibetian monasteries. Lots of space to get lost and feel at peace, anywhere and everywhere you look, your senses are gonna be fulfilled. For the adventurists- Ladakh is home to the world's highest motorable road - Umling La Pass at 19,300ft (even higher than the base camps of Mt Everest in Nepal) So get those motorbikes & jeeps ready, for you are in for an adrenaline rush. So many unique lakes and terrains to discover, I remember camping and spending a night at the Pangong Tso Lake and being hypnotized by the surreal beauty of it, oh, and did I mention I caught 6 shooting stars in one night?! The less polluted terrain offers magnificent star sightings in the night sky. Here are some popular places for you to check out & activities to do in Leh-Ladakh: - Pangong Tso Lake - Nubra Valley - River rafting a 28km glacier-melted Zanskar River - Winter Chadar Frozen River Trek - Hemis Monastery (these are just a few, trust me, this place has too much to offer) AND, its the safest destination is India for Solo Female Travelers!
