An exciting adventure starting off with an acclimatization trek through the popular Markha Valley and then on to Chamsher Kangri, a 6000er in the spectacular Changthang plateau overlooking the pristine Tsomoriri Lake. Markha Valley is a classic trek to get to know Ladakh and enjoy its moon-like landscapes. The trail passes through villages in the beginning and then onto grazing pastures and has a high pass Kongmaru la (5200m) to be crossed on the penultimate day. After the acclimatization trek, we attempt the lower twin of the twin peaks of Chamsher and Lungsher in the Rupshu area. Chamsher is a non-technical trekking peak but pretty high and is a prized catch for anybody getting their initiation into mountaineering. The summit affords excellent views of Tsomoriri Lake with Korzok Village and Mentok Kangri making the backdrop. This trip is also a great chance to get an insight into the lives of the Changpa Nomads who wander around the Changthang.

How does Edventure ladakh facilitate my travel experience?

Our local guides and experts are trained specifically to help you on your personal learning journey. We understand the value of mentorship and we always have our team on board to help you with acclimatization, learning the basics of getting along with your peers and hosts in a new environment.

We also promote dialogues and discussions through active engagement and hosting group events with the help of our local host families and communities. We take the responsibility of facilitating your personal growth on the journey you undertake with us by providing you a safe space to experience the world anew.

What is the average age-group of the participants?

There is no specific age-group- our travelers could be anywhere between 12-70. We host student groups so some of our travelers are also remarkably young. 

We only ask that our travelers come with a healthy body and a mindset open to reflection and cross-cultural immersion.

What differentiates Edventure ladakh?

Our vision is to facilitate transformative travel experiences. We do so by carefully curating each experience we offer. 

The travel plans are designed with small cohesive groups and trained experts and professional artists who conduct workshops and learning camps. No two programs are alike in the elements that they offer, each trip is designed around a specific theme and allows for an unparalleled immersion. 

What is included in the cost of the program?

Accomodation on MAP basis which includes breakfast, dinner and sleeping arrangements, permit fee to the governed areas, transportation costs while on the trip, guide and porters fee, facilitators fee, food while traveling, 

What is not included in the cost of the program?

Flight tickets (but we can help you with booking if requested beforehand), travel insurance, entrance fee in some places where applicable e.g. in some monasteries, medical expenses if any encountered on the trip 

What happens if we fall sick or get injured?

The group leaders and guides are trained in basic first aid and emergency healthcare providence. In cases of higher emergency, we facilitate swift and immediate response to transfer the person to the nearest hospital/healthcare provider. 

What is a typical travel day like with Edventure Ladakh?

You could be engaged with anything from working on the farms to taking the cows for grazing on the mountains on your trip. Since learning by immersion is an important part of our trips, you could even be attending a kayaking workshop with our expert facilitators. 

On some days, you can expect training in local handicrafts or intensive courses in language or philosophy. All experiences are designed keeping in mind our travel audience and we believe in allowing them to immerse and learn from their environment.
