    Default Delhi to Ladakh: Jun 5-19

    Inputs are gladly welcomed.
    please post here or email me at zoossh@starhub.net.sg. please do not pm me. thanks.


    About the place
    Ladakh is also called little tibet. it is in northwest india, next to kashmir, but is so far safe from armed conflicts. local permits are required and a few near to border locations will turn back any group smaller than 4. further information abt ladark can be googled. one of the links provided by elias601, another member of the group, show some stock photo in ladakh. temp in these location is about -3 to 20 (est for summer in leh, as usual dep. on attitude/time of day). attitude is about 2000 to 5000m. weather situation as usual is still a factor due to snow, but we will take the chance.


    About the group
    It is a co-planned trip. Our group consist of 3 males and 1 female, and set to go, not pending more people to join then to go. The dates and the area are fixed after discussion of availability of the group, but others are welcome to join if you like (within this stated period in flight details below); of cos flexibility to backpacking and photography is required. As some in my group have not backpacked before, we are not going for a rough trip, but it is relatively a budget (some moderate luxury in transport/accomodation/food may give way) kind of free and easy trip, with some of the arrangement made impromptu and insitu. There will also not be any trekking other than at most day/short easy treks.


    About the itinerary
    Itinerary is not planned in details yet, but generally we will travel to new delhi, stay overnite, set off by land through himachal pradesh on the way to leh in ladakh. return trip will most probably by domestic flight back. we'll need to read up before deciding further. leh looks something like this and some of the locations that we may be visiting somewhere from leh is for example like nubra valley.


    About the pertinents - tickets and cost
    The budget tickets are getting sold rapidly, so pricing here may not be the same. We will be getting the tickets first. It cost $880 for SQ (cheaper becos we got group of 4), flying off 5th evening and reaching sg 19th morning. overall cost probably abt 2k and hopefully not more, as chartered transport may be relatively costly (some location e.g. a taxi for a day cost US$60, something like S$20 per person for 5 person). details/cost can only be planned later depending on route/type of transport.
