Jeep Safari in Zanskar
Tour Code : LC-JSZ-1112
Duration: 11 nights / 12 days
Best Season: June-September
Often, the journey is as enriching as the destination, and it allows one to appreciate the destination a lot more.
This tour takes you on a gradual climb from the low-lying areas of North India, up the Himalayas, to the Tibetan Plateau.
Not only will you get to see and stay in some beautiful places, but you can also observe and appreciate how the natural world and human life adapts to increases in altitude as you journey towards Ladakh.
The gradual climb also allows you to acclimatize to Ladakh’s rarefied air so you can make the most of your getaway, where you can visit beautiful monasteries and the stunning scapes of Zanskar.
Day 01: Arrive at Leh airport by morning flight from Delhi. This flight is one of the most sensational flights in the world. On a clear day from one side of the aircraft can be seen in the distance the peaks of K2, Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum and on the other side of the aircraft, so close that you feel you could reach out and touch it, is the Nun Kun massif.
Upon arrival you will be transferred to your hotel. You would take a little time to settle in and acclimatize since you have gone from a relatively low elevation in New Delhi to over 11,000 feet! During the afternoon, you can walk through the old town, beneath the Leh Palace, to allow you to get oriented to this fascinating city. Overnight in a hotel.
