All about the magnificient Winter Ladakh Adventure Travel and Drive

Ladakh in winter is an experience by itself. In "off-season" of this high mountain place in winter, Ladakh is actually in its pristine best. As one flies into Leh, the magnificience of winter Ladakh has already started. As the flight descends down to the Leh over the high icy cold mountains, the first glipse of high altitude Himalayan landscape leaves a traveller awe struck.

Temperatures drop much below zero at night but this is the right time for you as a traveller toexplore the untouched beauty of Ladakh - a completely different side of this high mountain exotic location. There are virtually no tourists, and but there are more than enough locals around to chat with! The days are usually sunny, and it can be great fun to just walk around Leh and the market - no jostling for space as seen in summer!

Local Leh sightseeing including Shanti Stupa

Frozen Pangong Lake: The lake that changes colour every hour of the day also freezes over in winters with ice sheet becoming many feet thick in many areas. You can walk on the lake in certain areas. Virtually nobody on the road which goes via the Changla pass (5,334m), the drive takes you through stunning terrain, clinging to sheer cragged mountainsides.

Travel to Nubra in winter over the might Khardung la pass -- all covered in snow. An experience in itself as you travel up the road to 18,000 ft and then down to Nubra valley.

Travel to the ancient monasteries and villages of Alchi, Likir and Lamayuru - Again brilliant winter landscapes as cover them..

January 25-26, 2017 - Spituk Gustor festival [optional]. The one and only major festival in Spituk monastery. A great celebration by the monks and local - A riot of colours. The Spituk Gustor or The Victory of the Black Hat Dancers over Evil

The grand splendor of remote cold desert of Changthang and its lakes, namely the Tso Moriri and the much lesser known Yaya Tso
