Ladakh in winter is very special. Many people can only think of the cold weather, but that is only the basic condition also dominating European winter. The most interesting features of Ladakh in winter are: authentic monastery festivals, people having time to celebrate, to engage in conversations and to pray. And you can see animals like the snow leopards, that will never show themselves in summer.
You too can take this Buddhist winter calmness as an example and let in the deep spirituality, the pleasant conversations while drinking butter tea and unexpected encounters with people and wildlife.

We are braving the elements (although temperatures in the sun during the day can absolutely be above freezing) and go on hikes. Along the route in Sham valley we hike through snow leopard territory and with a little bit of luck maybe even see one of the shy creatures. We spend our nights with local farmers.
At the beginning of the tour we participate at the monastery festival in Matho, where even oracles will appear and take a look into the future. We dare to drive up to the Tibetan high plateau and visit nomads who spend their winter near the deep-blue lake of Tsomoriri before leaving Ladakh. This very special encounter will make up for the cold and stay in your memory forever.
After Ladakh in winter we bring you to Goa in winter to warm you up again – Goa probably being the most beautiful place to swim and visit a beach in India. Bury your feet in the warm sun, grab a refreshing drink and think back to the last days you spent in the cold high mountain desert of Ladakh.
For all individual tours: Get to know Leh during a full day excursion to the most interesting places.
