High Places began in India. 1987 saw our very first trip set off to trek in the Garhwal Himalayas in north India. We have gradually widened our destinations and now also go to Ladakh, Sikkim and to Kerala. If you are looking for an authentic, energetic yet sensitive holiday in India we are the specialists.
The mountain kingdom of Ladakh is in the far north of India and is a remote region of wild arid valleys, rocky gorges and ridges leading to peaks over 6000m. Through ingenious irrigation systems, the villages in summer are oases of green barley fields; isolated splashes of colour in the desert landscape.
Enjoy the beautiful Nubra Valley with the splendour of the Karakoram, village life and scenic Shyok Valley and Khardung La (5600m). We fly to Leh (3505m), where from a gardened hotel we commence our acclimatisation in a relaxed manner with time to visit some of the important monasteries in the area. We cross the world’s highest driveable road the Khardung La (5,260m) driving from Leh into the magnificent valley. Based in Hunder, which lies on the banks of River Shyok and Nubra. It is also the point diving the Karakorum from the Ladakh ranges. This is the area of Bactrian Camels and sand dunes and the Deskit and Hunder monasteries. The walking starts gently from the village of Hunder. We pass through small villages to reach the Phyang with a beautiful view of the whole Nubra valley.
