This area is one of the world's best places to learn about Tibetan Buddhism. Your Ladakhi guide knows the villagers, teachers, and monks you meet along the way. He is also very knowledgeable about Buddhism. You cross several 12,000' passes that separate beautiful valleys and remote villages. You will feel part of a land and culture that the 20th century has passed by, staying at the homes of your guide's friends and acquaintances. This may be the most personal, sincere, and hospitable travel experience you will ever have. Anyone who has been to Ladakh with JOURNEYS looks forward to returning.

“Our guides were the best- such nice people, we couldn’t ask for better guides and friends. The trip was amazing and we loved meeting the people, visiting the monasteries, seeing the totally mesmerizing scenery. We had so many great adventures -- from having tea with the monks, nuns, and friends of our guides to hiking over high pass in a white-out, only to get to the top and have it clear to a spectacular view of snow covered mountains. This will certainly go down as one of our most memorable trips ever.”
