    The ancient Buddhist kingdom of Zanskar, hidden deep in the western reaches of the Great Himalayan Range, has little contact with the outside world. Even the famous Himalayan caravan routes didn't pass this way since snow keeps Zanskar's high passes inaccessible most of the year. During the winter months, the locals commute by walking across the frozen Zanskar River.

    This Jeep safari takes you across high passes with the rocky folds of the Zanskari landscape, ever changing colours with the light of the day. You get to visit medieval villages; many nestled into cliff sides, irrigated fields of buckwheat and green pea patches and some well known monasteries – Alchi, Lamayuru, Mulbekh, Karsha monastery, Chuchik Jal Nunnery, Kalachakra temple, Bardan Monastry, Gyalwa Rignga and Stakrimo monastery, Zungkhul and Sani.
