The Journey...

This is a high altitude Horseback safari in the high mountain ranges of Changthang, located in Eastern Ladakh, a continuation of the western Tibetan plateau.

The trip starts in Leh, the ancient capital of the Himalayan Kingdom of Ladakh. You spend the initial three days acclimatizing and visiting the centuries old Monasteries set on hill tops in the unique Trans Himalayan landscape. Following which you will be driven through picturesque valley of Gyameru and over the Taglangla pass (5350 meters) to the Kharnak valley. The Horseback safari commences here, and takes you through the wetlands of Tsokar, which is known as the breeding grounds for the rare and endangered Black Necked Cranes and other water fowl like the Bar Headed Geese and Ruddy Shelduck, amongst other birds.

You will also ride across Tibetan wolf country, inhabited by nomads that rear the pashmina goats and yaks. Other wild life found here are Kiangs (Tibetan wild ass) and the Tibetan Argali. You will ride on sturdy Changpa horses for 5 days and end your trip at the banks of the beautiful Tsomoriri lake.
