Leh Ladakh Photo Tour

Medium

See Leh-Ladakh like no other. Apart from Leh, Nubra & Pangong Tso which are the regular places of mass tourism, we cover some off-beat and exotic places like Tso Moriri and Tso Kar that most people don’t visit. As a part of this carefully crafted tour, we have included a Ladakhi homestay at the village Maan on the shores of the famous Pangong Tso lake. This place offers a great view of the lake and also fantastic Astro-photography opportunity. From there we drive through the exotic and super beautiful Changthang region of Ladakh to reach the enchanting Tso Moriri Lake. We further visit the Tso Kar lake, a great birding site which boasts of many bird & wildlife species unique to this region.
