Overview

This trip from Srinagar to Zanskar involves an 9 days of breath taking views, might passes, deep gorges, snow capped mountain peaks, dramatic glaciers & isolated villages with humble people. Join us for an epic Jugni Road trip.

A mix of Buddhist and Muslim population that lives in perfect harmony with natural beauty all around on an even grander scale that you have been exposed to in LEH.
