Visit the local schools, monasteries and markets - you'll get a full understanding of the culture of each region, its people, religion and customs. For the more active walker, we can arrange trekking and camping in the more remote locations.
Miranda, Original Traveller
Over 11,500ft up on the high plateau of north-eastern India, Ladakh, often referred to as 'little Tibet', is geographically, anthropologically and culturally part of Tibet but actually belongs to India.
Miranda is here to help give you the inside track.
Why we think you’ll love it
- Ladakh's remoteness and sheer inaccessibility have protected it from the ravages of the Chinese cultural revolution that have sadly changed the rest of Tibet beyond recognition
- There's plenty of spectacular experiences to be had - like searching for snow leopards or spending a day with a Buddhist monk

Luxury Tailor Made Ladakh Holidays: The Detail
A high-altitude desert streaked with turquoise glacial lakes, fast flowing rivers flanked by lush green valleys and the backdrop of snow capped Himalaya mountains, this is a starkly beautiful place.
Though Ladakh has long been on the map for backpackers, mostly staying in and around Leh, it is not yet featured as a destination for the luxury adventure traveller.
Our 'village house' experience avoids the over commercialisation of Leh and heads off the beaten track to three unspoilt villages in the Indus valley.
Enjoy a seven night adventure tour staying in authentic, charming Tibetan style village homes, with gentle trekking, private visits to unspoilt Buddhist monasteries and thrilling rafting journeys on the Indus and Zanskar rivers.
We've been blowing the proverbial horn in favour of Ladakh for years and are happy to report that the wider region of Kashmir is making a comeback as well - 'bout time too we say.
