(Self-driving tour in Himalayas)
An oasis of gleaming blue and pristine white, enclosed by spectacular mountains and festooned with colorful prayer flags fluttering in the wind - Ladakh is pure magic. A road trip through this enchanted land will have you cruising upon some of the highest motorable passes in the world while basking in the warm tranquility of postcard-pretty Tibetan Buddhist monasteries that cast a shadow upon a landscape that displays only the best that nature has to offer and promises to be nothing short of being unbelievably exhilarating. The Himalayas in all their glory, Nubra Valley, Khardung La and numerous other daunting mountain passes, Thiksey Monastery, Pangong Lake, Tiger Hill and Golden Temple amidst others – the list of attractions on offer here seems endless. Add the signature spunk of Adventures Overland and what you have is the prospect of a journey so exceptional and stimulating, it will leave you truly awe-struck.
What are the Himalayas? Unique landscapes, winding icy rivers, incredibly high snowy peaks, steep serpentines, which are a pleasure for lovers of mountain roads to ride. You will feel complete unity with nature, isolation from reality and have a sense of the sacredness of this place, as if rising higher and higher into the mountains, you are getting closer and closer to the sky, to infinity.
