It’s that time of the year again, when we pack our woolens and get ready to go to the mesmerizing land of Ladakh. We have gone there every year since the year of inception of The Blueberry Trails and still the beauty that surrounds us never ceases to inspire. It takes our breath away every time. We have designed this trip for you keeping in mind the local nuances and smaller experiences that the land offers. We try to stay away from the mainstream, beyond the usual circuits.

Highlights of the trip:
1. A road trip in the Himalayan desert of Ladakh. Astounding passes and fertile valleys, snowcapped mountains and quaint villages will be your constant companion, that is, apart from an awesome set of co-travelers.
2. Offbeat curated stays like campsites in Mulbek and Pangong Tso with incomparable views. The blues of Pangong or the lush green alpine mountain slopes are sights you cannot forget too easily, even if you try. Alternatively, we would stay in a hotel in Leh, and a lovely homestay at Srinagar, for a more local flavour to the trip.
3. Adventures like village walks, and river side trails. Experiences, experiences, experiences; many of them are guided and many more will be the ones you find along the way.
4. Architecture, monasteries, and local culture; whether it’s a cup of tea shared with locals or a quiet moment spent in a distant monastery watching a monk pray, whether it’s marveling at the bright colours that adorn these structures or wondering how they keep warm in the -50 degree weather conditions. Curiosity knows no bounds and our drivers will have the answers to most of your queries if not all.
5. Homestay experience in Ladakh gives you an insight into the Ladakhi way of life. These basic stays will let you explore the culture, the local food, and the typical Ladakh lifestyle. Perhaps you can assist them in their day-to-day activities or learn their way of living.
6. Tour the dizzying passes of Khardungla and Chang La. These passes range from 13000 ft above sea level to 18380 ft (for Khardungla). You’ll literally be on top of the world!
