Travel changes you for the better, and certain travel experiences leave a lasting impact on you. One such experience is watching the changing colours of the mesmerising Pangong Lake in Ladakh. From gray to turquoise to aquamarine to emerald, it’s truly nature’s colour palette. What would make this experience even better is to witness it with a group of like-minded women, whose level of “travel crazy” matches yours!
Take the Ladakh Women Only Road Trip and explore some of the most magnificent natural landscapes, ancient monasteries and pristine lakes. The best part about women only trips is that you get to be yourself and stress free. Go on this adventure of a lifetime, travel with a fun bunch of girls and rejuvenate yourself! !
The Ladakh Women Only Road Trip will be led by Vaneeta Kang, who will take you from Manali to Leh passing through scenic Jispa, Nubra Valley; crossing the world’s highest motorable road, and magical Pangong Tso Lake.
This land of high passes is India’s most exotic travel destination and a road trip across its curvy terrains, overlooking rivers, mountains and lakes, will surely take your breath away. Your journey will start from Manali, a picturesque hill town in the Himalayas. Your next stop will be the offbeat and less explored Jispa Valley. As you enter Leh, be prepared to be bewitched by the snowy chocolate brown mountains, and after acclimatizing, embark on your journey to the world’s highest motorable pass, Khardung La. Explore the cold desert of India and witness one of the most mesmerising night skies in Nubra Valley.
