(Hello in Ladakhi)

LADAKH-  India’s highest plateau, cradled between the two highest mountain ranges in the world- Karakoram Range and the Greater Himalayas. Defined by the barren cliffs, craggy plateaus and highest cold desert, Ladakh’s astounding scenery is peppered with a number of colourful monasteries, multi coloured prayer flags and traditional culture- making it a sanctuary of Buddhist calm.

Through this tour of “ The Land of Lama: Ladakh!”, INDIAN EXPERIENCE takes you on an incredible journey across the Roof of the World- Ladakh!! 

The magical experience begins from observing the mystical prayer ceremonies and listening to the younger monks reciting sacred Buddhist texts to the accompaniment of cymbals in Thiksey Monastery, one of the grandest monasteries in Ladakh to the largest and most richly endowed monastic institution - Hemis Monastery, sitting on a green hill and surrounded by the spectacular Himalayas. From catching sight of a tall statue of Maitreya Buddha in the Diskit Monastery to a white-domed stupa on a hilltop, built to promote world peace and prosperity- Shanti Stupa.

Appreciate the pristine natural beauty of stunning lakes, beautiful villages, apricot orchards, ancient monasteries, scenic vistas, and lovely surroundings of Nubra Valley to the stunning moon-like landscape framed by picturesque bare mountains of Lamayuru Valley.

“Spiritual Experience in Ladakh!”
With Indian Experience I had the best experience in  Spiritual Ladakh. I'd been recommended by a friend to trust to use Narendra Singh at Indian Experience for my spiritual odyssey to Trans Himalayas, who proved to be worth his weight in gold with  all sightseeings, trips and trekking we have done together with my friends were very well planned and well organized.He guided me through the whole process smoothing out all the wrinkles. Good transportation with skillful drivers ,which is very important on himalayan roads!, The service I received was exceptional throughout the process!
