Active Adventure


An early morning transfer to the domestic terminal of the airport for the flight up to Leh. This surely is one of the most sensational scheduled flights in the world, taking you right over the top of the Greater Himalaya Range before dropping down in a series of steep turns, to land at the small airport at Leh. Flight time is approximately 1½ hours. You will be met on arrival, and driven through Leh to check into the Hotel. Leh is at an altitude of 11,500ft/3,500m, so we therefore we recommend that the rest of the day be spent resting to help adjust to the altitude.
Leh - Spituk - Zinchen (3200 m) in 4h: We will drive 10 km to Spituk from where we will start our trek. We cross Indus River, and then enter the valley of Zinchen River. Near the village in that valley, we will have our first camp after a 4 hr walk.
