More Information

In this beautiful region of Ladakh we travel for nearly two weeks through its unique circuit. In the Indian part of the Tibetan Changtang, south-east of Ladakh, the scenery is mesmerizing, and extremely luminous spaces are vast. The air is so pure that one gets lost in the infinite. Our itinerary takes us from the shores of Lake Tsokar to Korzok, the wonderful isolated village on the shores of Lake Tsomoriri. It is a unique trek in terms of the beauty but demanding and challenging because of the altitude and terrain, particularly from Rumtse to Tsomoriri. It focuses on monasteries, life of nomadic people, and some high altitude lakes. It starts with the trail that leads us to a river flowing in from the right side. After widening and narrowing of the valley several times there comes a point where it turns towards north side leading to the campsite close to a local nomadic settlement in their traditional life. The barren region is home to numerous species of wildlife including the wild Ass Kiang, Himalayan Marmot, Tibetan Antelope, and Himalayan Ibex. The final leg of our trek leads us over a high mountain pass to the shores of beautiful Tsomoriri Lake. Surrounded by over 6,000m high snow-capped peaks this lake is alive with abundance of very rare migratory birds. The trek ends at the enchanting Tsomoriri Lake from where we head back to Leh.

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.

This is the second trip we’ve done through Active India and with good reason. They are very flexible and responsive tailoring our trip specifically following my requests in advance but adding their suggestions advice and expertise of the areas we visited. All team members from all offices checked ahead to ensure everything went smoothly and were on hand if it didn’t (which was rare). They even set up a WhatsApp group so I had confidence and contact should I need it at all times. Everyone from the managing director down cared that we had the best time smoothly run to itinerary and that really matters. It’s what sets them ahead of other tour companies. Highly recommend as I have utmost trust and faith in this company following 2 successful wonderful trips to 2 completely different areas in amazing India. So it’s thank you to Ravi Tickoos Heena and all the team but for me it’s a special thanks to Priya who always goes above and beyond.
