  • Description

    Description

    Ours is a small travel outfit based out of Leh, Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir. We are working with the local community to preserve local heritage and culture by promoting a format of inter-dependant working culture through tourism. We work with monks from monasteries, nomads from the hinterlands of changthang and village folk from across cultures to give travellers a glimpse in to the real life of the locals that is rapidly changing with modernisation. Our initiative is striving to work towards promoting an income through tourism which in turn would encourage locals not to give up their way of life.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Ladakh as a place is unlike any other part of the world, we work in a surreal terrain of the world beyond the Himalayas in a land that is often called the roof of the world. You will work in the remotest part of the world with cultures so ancient that it is sometimes hard to believe they exist even today. Feel free to delve in to the history of the silk roads that Leh was a major part of or the follow the path of various religions paint these lands or make an attempt to understand the depths of Tibetan Buddhism or just get lost exploring the vast landscape of these moonlands and study the flora and fauna.

    We have a lot of stories about the local ways of life and about the land itself, but need help with promoting then online so the world would know about these unique ways of life. And we have a free travel information centre where a lot of travellers visit for information, so would require help assist tourist with information.

    In your off time you could try your hand at rock climbing, visiting monasteries, take short hikes, go kayaking in the river, go on a motorcycle ride, learn an ancient art form. The list is never ending, happy to explain the possibilities once we come to a common understanding of working together.
