So, find out what this family has to say about their recent holiday here!
We always wanted to step into the scenic paradise that Ladakh is but with our daughter being too young, we couldn’t due to many health risks involved in going to that level of altitude. When our child turned 12, we figured, it’s time for a fun packed vacation to Ladakh!
Besides being home to the fascinating Karakoram range and main Himalayan range, this place was also new to our daughter and that’s how we knew it would be more than just an adventure. With a week-long plan in our mind, we couldn’t wait for this journey to begin as we’ve been planning for it for the past few months.
