India: High Road To Kashmir

Visit operator website

Run by: Wild Frontiers

Reference number: HRK

From: £2645.00

For more than a decade the holiday Mecca of Kashmir was considered out of bounds. Not any more! Since 2005, we have been running trips here with great success. Of all our trips to Kashmir, this is one of our favourites, including as it does a visit to neighbouring Ladakh with its strong Tibetan Buddhist influences.

Starting with an epic flight over the Himalayas to Leh, we will first visit ancient palaces, forts and monasteries of the Indus Valley where we will also be able to see rural life in the old Silk Road kingdom of Ladakh. From here we will visit the remote Nubra Valley over the world’s highest driveable pass before heading on what is generally regarded as one of the most spectacular roads in the whole Himalaya - via Lamayuru and the Zanskar Valley - to Srinagar and its beautiful alpine mountains and lakes. This itinerary is perfect for those with a real sense of adventure!
