Jeep Safaris
 
An easier and more relaxed way to explore the beautiful landscapes of Ladakh and Zanskar is by taking one of our many Jeep Journeys. We have a fleet of well maintained 4 wheel Jeeps manned by well trained and knowledgeable safe drivers. As all these Safaris entail camping we send along a support Jeep with expert camp staff comprising a friendly expert cook and eager to please camp assistants. All our kitchen and camp equipment are of the highest possible standards and daily schedules are flexible according to your inclination. While we have regular planned Jeep Safaris we are always open to your requirements and time schedule because our aim is to give you a leisurely holiday not take you on a whirlwind tour where all you see is a blurred vision of the land. You are always welcome to design your own itinerary for which we give all necessary information of the area and camping sites enroute. Some of our more popular pre-planned Jeep Safaris are given here for you to choose from. You can always mail us if you have a particular destination in mind and we'll extend all help in preparing a special customized safari just for you.


The Changthang Lake District Safari - 7 Nights / 8 Days.

Highest Altitude reached: 5260 metres. Best months: June to September.

This Safari takes you through the high grazing lands of the nomadic Changpa who roam these lands with their herds of Yak and goats. In the vast open spaces of the Rupshu valley the Changthang plateau is a haven of silence and offers magnificent views of distant snow clad mountains. Our Safari takes in two salt water lakes - the expansive Tso Moriri at a height of 4525 metres fringed in by bald burnished hills which is also a breeding ground for numerous migratory birds. On the southwest shores of this seemingly endless lake is the charming village of Karzok the only permanent settlement in the region. Inhabited by a warm and friendly community it has a 135 year old monastery well worth a visit. To the south east stands Mentok peak while to the north is the Chamsher peak at 6620 metres. Enroute also are the famous medicinal hot water springs of Chumathang. Get to visit and meet the ever smiling Changpa who live in large yak skin tents while moving around these grazing grounds.
