Overview

A land like no other with superabundance of attractions to visit and phantasmagoric and fabulous landscapes, amazing people and culture, Ladakh is truly a heaven on Earth. Bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram, it lies athwart two other, the Ladakh range and the Zanskar range. Ladakh is mystical in all the spheres it covers, from nature, geography and sceneries to the modest cultures that it fosters. Right from gompas to the sensational momos, the superabundance of attractions to visit makes this city make it heaven on earth. It is said that only in Ladakh can a man sitting in the sun with his feet in the shade suffer from sunstroke and frostbite at the same time.

Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect gompas (Tibetan Buddhist monasteries) dramatically crown rocky outcrops amid whitewashed stupas and mani walls. Colorful fluttering prayer flags share their spiritual messages metaphorically with the mountain breeze. Prayer wheels spun clockwise release more merit-making mantras. Gompa interiors are colorfully awash with the murals and statuary of countless bodhisattvas.

The walls of dramatic mountains that hem in Ladakh make for an unforgettable landscape, but be aware that road access requires crossing tortuous high passes, which close from around October to May.

What Our Travelers Say

  • When you travel with TravelOn you don't just have a trip or a vacation but a soulful journey and abundance of experience.

    I have travelled with TravelOn on two of their many safaris and I appreciate the efforts put for the accommodation or ride schedules which are well managed by the Host. However, few might think, they will find best accommodation and well-constructed safari rides through any agency. I will ask them to travel with TravelOn to know the difference.

    Hospitality and humility are two strengths the host team guides their TravelOn campaigns.

    Many safaris begin on the day of arrival, but with TravelOn, the experience begins 15 days before as they create a group on social media and provide their previous experiences. This binds us to the fellow travellers and we become part of the journey.

    With TravelOn you just don't visit the most iconic wildlife destinations but you travel with people who have experience and who care for your happiness and they strive to make the travel worth your expectations.

  • Trip of a lifetime!

    I had the absolute Amazing Jungle Safari for a lifetime, thanks to the planning and organization provided by TravelOn! 

    Archana Tai, Mandar Dada and Subodh Dada planned every minute of our trip perfectly, paying such attention. We felt we were in very good hands, during our entire trip. Every moment With TravelIOn was unforgettable, and we can never thank enough for all their efforts and incredibly personalized experience they gave to us. I would recommend TravelOn to anyone who really wants a 5 star experience. So far I completed 3rd amazing safari trip by TravelOn team and many more to come. My overall experience was exceptional. The hotels where we stayed were fantastic as well. Foods of all the places are good. In some place there is a lot of moving parts - travel by train, Bus and Cars- all without a hitch! Team of TravelOn were super friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend TravelOn.

  • My trip with Travel On in January 2017 has been an amazing experience. Everything was organized just perfectly and Archana & Mandar made sure to make this a wonderful experience for my family & me. This was my first wildlife excursion to Tadoba-Nagzira along with my parents who are senior citizens. They ensured that entire trip for the senior citizens was hassle free and special attention was given to them throughout. Especially through the Safaris. All our basic comforts and needs were well taken care. Be it accomodation, food or the expert guidance, there was nothing more I would ask for. The complete experience was very delightful. I think this is one of the best trips I’ve taken so far. Kudos to the team, keep it up! See you guys soon! Cheers

  • We had a fabulous time. The information about wildlife shared by you guys were spot on and with the help of your knowledgeable guides we spotted 4 tigers :) which was awesome. We could not have seen so much and in such an efficient manner had we not gone on your tour.

  • My experience with Travel On was awesome. It was first experience to explore wild life tourism with them in which they claim them as specialist. Post tour I agreed that their claim is cent percent correct. The arrangement, planning and coordination appreciated. Knowledge sharing and pre tour information with the group made them different than other operators. Wish all the best for their future endeavour and definitely look forward to plan another wild life tour with my family and friend with them very soon.
