Leh, Pangong, Nubra Valley, Sham Valley, Kargil town, Srinagar

Ladakh meaning "land of high passes", an apt name for this heaven on earth. This district in the state of Jammu and Kashmir lies between the Kunlun mountain range in the north and the main Great Himalayas to the south. This would no doubt be a trip of a lifetime. It's a breathtaking experience to witness this wonderful land. The region includes the Baltistan valleys, the Indus Valley, the remote Zangskar, Lahaul and Spiti and the Nubra valleys. Ladakh is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and culture. It is sometimes called "Little Tibet" as it has been strongly influenced by Tibetan culture. The largest town in Ladakh is Leh. It is one of the few remaining abodes of Buddhism in South Asia. Leh is the second largest town in Ladakh after Kargil.

Kashmir is a multi-faceted diamond set like a jewelled crown, changing its hues with the seasons - always extravagantly beautiful. Two major Himalayan ranges, the Great Himalayan Range and the Pir Panjal, surround the landscape from the north and south respectively. They are the source of great rivers, which flow down into the valleys, forested with orchards and decorated by lily-laden lakes. The Mughals aptly called Kashmir ‘Paradise on Earth’ where they journeyed across the hot plains of India, to the valley’s cool environs in summer. Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir lies on the banks of the Jhelum River, a tributary of the Indus. The city is famous for its gardens, lakes and houseboats. It is also known for traditional Kashmiri handicrafts and dry fruits.

Prices start at Rs 44650 Per Couple
