Overview

This trip from Srinagar to Zanskar involves an 11 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 Roadtrip.

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. The journey to this isolated valley makes it even more rewarding because these roads are closed because of heavy snow for almost 7-8 months & only accessible on foot during winters.
