Reviews for Ladakh adventure vacations, India


review 28 Aug 2019

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing the high mountains, crossing the passes (highest driveable in the World. Ever changing spectacular landscapes, from tropical forests to (frozen) deserts.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Pack your wet weather gear, take, if possible, a 'prophylactic against Delhi-belly before you go. Be prepared to be amazed by the landscapes.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Clearly bringing money in for local food etc benefits the local economies, entry fees etc help the monasteries. One environmental impact is the use of plastic bottles for drinking water - R O water was not available in many places, don't think the filter bottle I was persuaded to take was much use. I think it is up to the Indian Govmt. to sort a Nationwide potable water system (most other Countries are managing it!), of all things this will have the most beneficial environmental impact, reducing the curse of plastic bottle mountains and of plastics use.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

To use a Buddhist phrase an 'enlightenment' Actually 4 1/2 stars
