Jammu and Kashmir

Kashmir, known as the Venice of the East, is a paradise on earth which sits high in the Himalayas.  Here you will find soaring snowcapped peaks reflecting onto crystal clear lakes peppered with lotus flowers, water lilies and floating gardens.

Sadly, much of this idyllic corner of North India is generally off limits for tourists’ due to years of political unrest.  Please do consult The British Foreign & Commonwealth Office to find out the latest advisory on travel to the region which can vary from time to time.

However in the far northern reaches of the state you will find the peaceful and remote Himalayan territory of Ladakh. This unexploited and sparsely populated region, is often referred to as the rooftop of the world. Here barren plateaus, are interspersed with verdant oasis, glacial streams, open farmland, and a multitude of medieval monasteries scattered throughout the mountainside. Begin your journey in the capital of Leh, staying in the picturesque Ultimate Travelling camp, set in a pretty meadow at the base of the Thikse Monastery. Spend a few days here acclimatizing to the altitude, before heading into the dramatic landscapes and lofty peaks of the Nubra Valley and beyond.
