Top Things to Do in Ladakh 2023

From witnessing sunrise at Pangong to stargazing at Shanti Stupa, or attending festivals to walking on a frozen river, there are a plethora of things to do in Leh Ladakh. Here are a few of the best that are included in our itinerary of the Leh tour packages. 

1. River Rafting

Unlike other adventure experiences in Ladakh, rafting can be enjoyed with a simple psyche and an excited heart. Rafting adds profundity to your Ladakh visit and permits you to appreciate the area in an alternate way. Before entering Pakistan, the Indus River offered numerous boating and white river rafting opportunities along with amplifying the beauty of Ladakh. Rafting can likewise be enjoyed on the rapids of the Zanskar River. The gushing waters alongside the exciting bends in the path of the stream make whitewater rafting on the Zanskar an exhilarating experience. Every year during the season, thousands of Ladakh trip packages are booked just to experience the magnificence of picturesque landscapes and exhilarating demonstrations of rafting. Upon everything, the transcending mountain, fresh breeze, and feelings of excitement are what truly makes white water rafting in Ladakh a wonderful experience.     

In the case of river rafting in Ladakh, there is something for everyone; it ranges from basic to wild. You can choose your type of rafting stream from Level I to Level IV. The best time for whitewater rafting in Ladakh is in the transition time between summers and monsoon. Although Zanskar doesn't experience monsoon, during this time the river stream becomes fast flowing which is perfect for activities like rafting. This exciting activity is experienced between the months of June and September. The flow of Zanskar and Indus is at its peak during this time. It is when the Level V difficulty level can also be experienced. Rafting in Leh is certifiably not a perilous encounter and Whitewater Rafting isn't just an activity that you embrace in Ladakh, it is an encounter you live through. So, book your Leh Ladakh tour package to experience thrill at the best.  

2. Bike Trip

Leh Ladakh bike trip is all about the thrilling vibe and never dying adventurous spirit of a rider. The summer season is considered to be the best for visiting Leh Ladakh on a bike. The weather is pleasant and the temperature is favourable. During these months you can indulge in the circuit and extend your trip to Lahaul & Spiti of Himachal Pradesh. The ideal duration of a bike trip to Ladakh depends on a lot of factors like the route, weather conditions and the places you want in your itinerary.  If we consider Delhi as the base of your Leh Ladakh bike trip, there are two routes to choose from- Srinagar-Leh and Manali-Leh. If you take the Srinagar route, you would need 13-15 days and taking the most preferred Manali route, you would need a minimum of 10 days.  If you are looking for a budget bike trip to Ladakh, book our cheapest Ladakh Tour package to make the most of your adventure-filled trip. 

The routes:

  • Delhi-Srinagar-Leh- Delhi

Delhi > Ambala > Ludhiana > Jalandhar > Pathankot > Udhampur > Srinagar > Sonmarg > Baltal > Dras > Kargil > Mulbekh > Leh > Sarchu > Manali > Delhi

3. Trekking in Ladakh

Ladakh is full of exciting trekking trails with awe-inspiring landscapes, eccentric climate and temperatures. Trekking is without a doubt the most energising activity in Leh Ladakh and the greatest reason for the booking of Leh Ladakh trip packages. Trails in Ladakh vary from moderate to intense to most dangerous. You can choose according to your level. Some of the best trekking trails in Ladakh include Darcha - Padum Trail, Spituk Gompa Trail, Markha Valley Trail in Hemis National Park, Nubra Valley Trek, Stok Kangri Trail, Lamayuru to Alchi Trail, Zanskar Trail, Rumtse to Tso Moriri, and Chadar Frozen River Trek. The ideal time for trekking in Ladakh is from May to September. However, if you want to take the Chadar Trek details guide, January to February is the best time. 

Trekking is no joke, it is better to be prepared to avoid any mishaps. Work on your physical and mental fitness, get medical tests done and get acclimatised in Leh. Always trek under professional guidance. Things such as sunscreen, insulated gloves, trekking rod, sleeping bags, first aid kit, warm clothes, water flask, trekking boots, protein bars, dry food, energy drink, and sunglasses are some of the essential things that you must pack for the trek. Ladakh is one of the enchanting places on earth. And some of its hidden beauty can be witnessed during these treks.

4. Chadar Trek

Known by many names such as the Chadar River Trek or Zanskar Trek or Ladakh Frozen River Trek - it is one of a kind in the entire world. The word "Chadar" in local language signifies a "cover" and represents the sheet of ice that makes a pathway over the frozen Zanskar River in the coldest months of the year. For the longest time, this frozen river bed has been utilised by local people, for exchange and transportation. The pathway is generally used for trekking in the months of January and February when the sheet of ice is generally steady and thick. 

Zanskar River is a large and fast-flowing river all around the year. It courses through a precarious gulch, generally, among Chilling and the Zanskar Valley. The Chadar trek duration is usually seven days. The major part of the walking in the light hours, and in night, provides for a little private camp. While it stays perhaps the most novel trip in the Himalayas and has no comparison anywhere in the World, the Chadar frozen river is tragically becoming an endangered place - due to global warming. Enjoy it while it lasts! Get your hands on our best Leh and Ladakh tour packages to experience the much-celebrated trek in Ladakh. 

5. Home Stay Experience

Imagine waking up with the view of a quaint village against the backdrop of mesmerising Himalayan mountains. Nestled in the snow-capped mountains and rolling meadows, Ladakh is visited by thousands of tourists for either its glorious monasteries or thrilling adventure activities. By choosing any Ladakh holiday packages, you can experience the true essence of Ladakh by staying in a homestay. Experience the traditional Ladakhi hospitality of Ladakh by staying in one of its homestays. Jimmy's Homestay, Gangba Homestay, Adu's Eternal Comforts, and Thukchu Homestay are a few of many cosy homestays in Ladakh. The caring owners, surreal views, homegrown food, and long meaningful conversations are worth more than any hotel stay - that too at very affordable prices. Staying in a homestay on your Leh Ladakh trip is worth every penny. 

5. Wedding Photo Shooting

Only a few times in the winters does it come down to Hemis to look for prey. The Hemis National Park is the most enchanting region of Ladakh with dramatic landscapes of colossal mountains, charming glens and gorges and is our very own garden of Eden. Every year, a number of wildlife photographers around the world come to Ladakh just to get a glimpse of the rarest and most beautiful predators in the world.

Ladakh Trip Safety Guidelines

No doubt your trip to Leh Ladakh is going to be an amazing experience but there are a few safety tips to keep in mind that ensures your holidays remain a safe one without any hassle. Below are some of the precautions for the Leh Ladakh trip. 

  • Don’t be a victim of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). To avoid suffering from it, ascend gradually and take a day’s rest in Leh to acclimatise. Take a Diamox tablet 24 hours before entering the high altitude region. 
  • Your itinerary should be well planned. By this we mean, you shouldn’t plan a visit directly to the high altitude region of Ladakh. Explore Leh for a day or two. This will help you enjoy your trip without any health complications.  
  • If you have asthma, consult your doctor before planning Leh Ladakh tour. 
  • Keep an eye on the shooting stones and beware of them as they can pose a real threat. 
  • Check Leh Ladakh’s weather and temperature before planning a trip, especially for a trip in the monsoon season. 
  • There are some rough stretches in Ladakh. The roads are bumpy which has led to many accidents. So, if you plan to self-drive, do it carefully. 
  • Keep 2-3 days as a buffer than your actual Ladakh itinerary. Ladakh is an unpredictable land and uncertainties are common here. To avoid getting stuck here, it’s good to keep extra days. 
  • Avoid planning a road trip to Ladakh late in the season. Manali-Leh highway is not safe to travel between late October to March. When planning a trip in the winter season, it is better to take a flight to Leh and then start your journey.
