Into the Highlands

Srinagar, Sonamarg, Kargil, Nurla, Leh, Nubra, Pangong, Leh


Journey into India’s northern highlands for an unforgettable mountain adventure. The trans-Himalayan landscapes of Kashmir and Ladakh are spectacular, all alpine slopes and glacial rivers, lunar landscapes and monastery-studded cliffs. From serene houseboat rides on Srinagar’s Dal Lake to adrenaline pumping river rafting on the Shyok river, meeting local wood carvers and craftspeople, and indulging in elaborate traditional Wazwan meals, join us for an immersive journey filled with crafts, culture, and adventure. 

With vast meadows, pine forest, and snow-capped mountains, Kashmir may well be one of India’s most scenic destinations. Glide down Srinagar’s Dal Lake in a houseboat and explore lively markets filled with walnut wood carvings and delicately woven pashminas. Wedged between the Karakoram and the Himalaya, Ladakh is a stunningly beautiful region of stark mountains and turquoise rivers. Visit hilltop monasteries with sweeping views, and experience the Buddhist way of life in remote high-altitude villages. Explore the vibrant old town of Leh, and experience the thrill of white water rafting down a river. Nature and adventure, culture and crafts all come together on this unforgettable journey into the highlands.
