The area is rich in wildlife - we've seen kyang (the wild horse of the Changthang), wild goats, marmots, giant wild hares; bar-headed geese, brahminy ducks, gigantic "bearded" vultures, snow pigeons, Tibetan snow cocks and the rare black-necked crane.
We walk across high passes strung with prayer flags and lush grasslands carpeted with wildflowers and visit ancient Tibetan Buddhist monasteries.
Horses carry all equipment, luggage and supplies. On the trail you need only carry a small day pack with water bottle and light shell. Our dining and lounging tent is large and our experienced and very friendly local team sets up camp and prepares meals in the separate kitchen tent.
Back in Delhi, we'll explore the great sites of Old and New Delhi, visit parks and vibrant markets. Walk and ride rickshaws through the lanes of Old Delhi.
Note: Tour package includes two domestic flights (Delhi to Leh and Leh back to Delhi), all your international and domestic airport transfers, excellent hotel accommodation in Delhi and Leh, all meals, road travel by deluxe SUV, and roomy Gortex sleeping tents on the trek.
