Itinerary

Day 1Delhi
Welcome to Delhi, India's chaotic capital that's everything you imagine it to be and more. Meet your group at 6 pm, but there's no harm arriving early and immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of old and new Delhi.
Day 2Leh
Fly from Delhi to the mountain city of Leh, located in the Indian Himalayas approximately 3500 metres above sea level. Today provides an opportunity to relax and acclimatise to the altitude before taking part in some physically active adventures over the next coming days. Take a stroll, take it easy and take in the views.
Day 3Leh
Spend another day taking in the sights of Leh. Sharpen your bargaining skills with visits to the Tibetan Market and local bazaars, then head to Leh Palace for spectacular views of the city and surrounding mountains. Construction of the palace began in 1553 and it's modelled after the Potala Palace, which was the Dalai Lama's official residence up until 1959. Nearby, the Shanti Stupa sits high above town and is a breathtaking sight nestled in the seemingly never-ending Himalayan range.
