The Sikh and the Monk

Gaze at the glistening Golden Temple, watch a bizarre border ceremony and listen to monks chant in the Himalayan foothills, filled with fluttering prayer flags. This spiritual trip will take you from eye-opening Amritsar into India’s ‘Little Tibet’, a Buddhist nook between forested peaks that the Dalai Lama calls home. First, you’ll visit the Golden Temple, the holy centre of the Sikh religion. Standing in the Pool of Nectar, you’ll see pilgrims file into the temple while ceaseless, gentle chanting echoes all around you. You’ll also swing by the surreal and flamboyant border ceremony between India and Pakistan, before heading into the Himalayas for some fresh air and hilltop meditation.

India's Little Tibet

Explore a gentle mountain world of fluttering prayer flags and snowy peaks. Cross high Himalayan passes, meet red-robed monks and soak up the staggering views. Travelling from Manali to Leh, you’ll journey through deep valleys and lonely plains, stopping at secluded villages and sipping masala chai. Leaving behind the cosy teahouses and natural hot springs of Manali, you’ll pass through an empty world flanked by zig-zagging mountain peaks. Travelling by private car, you can stop as often as you like to stretch your legs or take a few snaps. You’ll sleep in simple guesthouses and meet the locals on the way to Leh, where you’ll spend a day hopping between colourful monasteries.

Unveil the Secrets of Nubra Valley

Hidden behind the spectacular Khardung La Pass, the Nubra Valley sits at over 3,000m above sea level and is relatively isolated and remote. Those who make the trip are rewarded with magnificent views of Himalayan Mountains, verdant valleys, and a white sand desert. This fertile valley is also scattered with trees lining its rivers and oases. During your trip, you’ll visit colourful Buddhist monasteries, striking viewpoints, and charming villages.
