We have been planning a return to Ladakh for some time, and have made some fantastic changes to our previous itineraries: taking in a different festival, a remote and hidden valley, and ending up in the bustling city of New Delhi.

Ladakh is an fascinating and entrancing region of India. A literally breathtaking high altitude landscape, sandwiched between the Karakoram and Great Himalayan mountain ranges. The religion and culture here is decidedly Tibetan, with incredible Buddhist monasteries everywhere and a vibrant history of forts and palaces.

From New Delhi, we fly into Leh, where we will explore this atmospheric town before heading east to Hemis Gompa, calling in at the Shey and Thiksey Monasteries as we go.

Heading much more off the beaten track, we will summit the fabled Khardung La - hailed as the highest motorable pass in the World - to access the remote Nubra Valley, where we will have the chance to ride Bactrian Camels!

From Nubra, we will reurn to Leh, before heading down west to Lamayuru along the Srinagar-Leh Highway to the remote Zanskar Valley. Enroute we will visit the ancient town of Alchi and the monasteries of Phayang and Likir.

Zanskar is the location for the two day Karsha Gustor festival, which will see masked monks dancing in the ancient courtyard of the monastery, in a ritual which dates back hundreds of years and will attract a number of pilgrims from the surrounding region.

From Zanskar, we will return to Leh, breaking our journey in Kargil and Alchi before flying back to Delhi where the tour ends.

We have also radically changed our teaching schedules on our trips; and will be setting setting more projects and providing opportunities for more individual image critques as well as our usual series of illustrated talks, group practical sessions and image reviews. Our aim is to help you to learn more about photography, and come back with more fantastic images than you ever thought possible, as well as engaging with this fascinating part of India!
