Blue skies, high peaks and warm hospitality
Visit remote monasteries, ride Bactrian camels and sleep warmly in eco-camps at the top of the world
With the bluest sky in the world, and scenery that can look more like Star Wars than anywhere on Earth, it is really very difficult to take a bad photo in the high-altitude desert region of Ladakh. Every corner you turn around is just more stark and stunning beauty.
Ladakh’s capital is the old town of Leh. Prepare to be greeted with a friendly “Jullay!” by the hospitable Ladakhi people. Leh makes a great base to explore some of the Buddhist monasteries, high passes and stunning blue lakes in the region.
Leh stands at an altitude of 3500m, so you’ll need a couple of rest days to acclimatise after flying in. This area is high above the monsoon clouds, and so the best time to visit is in summer when the rest of India is off-season.
In the wider Ladakh region you can visit monasteries and stay in an eco-camp in Uletokpo, cross the world’s highest road pass to ride one-humped Bactrian camels in the Nubra Valley, and sleep warmly on the banks of the high-altitude lake at Pangong Tso.

The Far & Wild Community...
We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.
The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
