View across the valley with snow capped mountains in Ladakh in India

Chanting monks in the mountains

Trek across an empty moon-like land to remote monasteries clinging to cliffs in Ladakh, hike between hilltops criss-crossed with rainbow prayer flags, amble past orchards and rushing rivers in plunging valleys. Stay in simple guesthouses and family homestays, explore Himalayan foothills of the north west, scattered with gentle Buddhist villages, red-robed monks spinning prayer wheels and alpine forests.

Step into Shangri-La

North East India is dotted with Tibetan communities tucked away between emerald tea plantations and forested hills. Towered over by Kanchenjunga, it’s a place of dramatic beauty and true serenity. Separated from Bhutan and Nepal only by a jagged snowy ridge, it’s home to a real ethnic Himalayan mix. Hike to colourful monasteries in the hills, follow the Tibetan temple trail and stare out over the snow-dusted Himalayan peaks as you walk.
