Ladakh and Kashmir- The Hemis Festival
Ladakh and Kashmir - The Hemis Festival
Venture to the far north of India to the magical regions of Ladakh and Kashmir. Experience the cultural attraction of the Hemis Festival in Leh where monastery lamas perform in richly adorned masks to a cacophony of drums, cymbals and long horns as the birthday celebrations of Guru Padamasambhava. We cross high mountain passes with stupendous vistas and travel to remote villages close to the border with Pakistan. We spend time in the fertile Nubra Valley, a green oasis of villages surrounded by harsh arid peaks. The tour finishes in Kashmir where you will stay on a houseboat on atmospheric Nagin Lake. Add in crumbling old towns, magnificent centuries old monasteries and friendly locals you will be enchanted by this picture perfect corner of India.
