More Information

Our tour begins with a spectacular flight over the Himalayas to the remote Ladakhi capital, Leh. At 3,500 metres above sea level. Leh was once a major trading post at the junction of the historic silk route that ran from China and Central Asia to the plains of India. The queer, distinctive culture and history, closely related to Tibet, are demonstrative of the way of life and culture well-preserved for hundreds of years. We spend the first two days acclimatizing to the high altitude with a gentle sightseeing tour of the sights around Leh before heading out in the Jeeps to the spectacular 11th century Alchi monastery. We take an exhilarating hike out to Mangyu monastery through the amazingly scenic Western Tibetan Plateau before travelling to the ethereal beauty of Pangong Tso, a sapphire-coloured high-altitude lake that serves as summer grazing area for nomadic yak herders. En route back to Leh, we also stop by at Hemis monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tour involves extensive driving and some hiking, including side trips into the remote Nubra Valley after crossing Khardung La (5,602 metres), the highest motorable pass in the world with fabulous panoramic views across the Himalayas. A visit to Agra to see the magnificent Taj Mahal gives this incredible tour a fitting finish.

We’ve just returned from a fabulous visit around North India with Active India. Our guide Ketan was friendly, knowledgeable and organised lots of additional activities for us. He really went above and beyond and made the trip so special for us - thank you Ketan and Active India!

5 Stars

This was an Exceptional holiday, that exceeded my expectations. The tour Guides were fantastic, nothing was to much trouble for them, they made this trip special.

After many years of wanting to visit India, Active India was recommended by some friends who had made a similar trip last year. From the outset this company was excellent from the planning and fine tuning of our special holiday right through the trip until its conclusion. Drivers and guides were excellent and hotels were as we had booked- some good 3 stars and some beautiful havelis and 4 stars. The company even had a whatsapp group set up to provide instant help with anything that came up. We travelled through Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Kerala. It was a fascinating and richly cultural experience. Active India is an excellent company which has been in existence for 20 years and we would highly recommend them.
