Top 3 Most Popular
Diwali vacation trips

by Life Away From Life

Top 3 most popular trips trips suggested by Life Away From life during the diwali vacations of 2017.

1: The Great Indian Desert Trek – Bikaner , Rajasthan, India.

The desert, and the act of moving through it, is a wonderful place for cleaning the mind of all our daily thoughts and worries. The desert and its dunes stretch for miles and miles. Then a few more miles before the evening meal, a roaring fire, music, singing and a night under the stars as you have never before seen them.
Lying on the dunes, watching the star studded sky, with the chill breeze and a hot cuppa coffee is our idea of spending an evening in the desert.

You will return from the desert feeling mentally clean and rested.

 We would stay in tents in the middle of desert. Join us.

Life away from life - adventure travel

The crystal clear tropical waters surrounding the island of Zanzibar are home to some of the world’s most diverse sea life and colourful reefs.  At Mnemba Atoll marine park turtles are a common site and are used to seeing divers.  At least three pods of dolphins live in the area and are seen on almost all trips and the majestic whale sharks migrates past the island twice a year.  Around the same time of year whales can be seen and a pod of rare humpback dolphins have been sighted many times.  These strange creatures number only twelve hundred in the world and we are lucky enough to have around forty in the area.

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a breathtaking archipelago located east of India. Spread out over more than 800 km in the Bay of Bengal, it looks like the perfect tropical dream.

The islands are famous for its serene, white sandy beaches characterised by sparkling blue waters.
Thickly covered by deep green tropical forest, the archipelago supports a profusion of wildlife, including some extremely rare species of bird, but the principal attraction for tourists lies in the beaches and the pristine reefs that ring most of the islands.

 Filled with colourful fish and kaleidoscopic corals, the crystal-clear waters of the Andaman Sea feature some of the world’s richest and least spoilt marine reserves – perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving.

TOP 5  Ladakh Trips 2017
by Life away From Life

Ladakh Trips have been a favourite with Life Away From Life since the year 2000. Based on our experience in this Trans-Himalayan region , we suggest 5 top trips this year 2017  which one must experience.

  1. Ladakh Backpacking Trek
    Ladakh backpacking trek

    What’s Backpacking? Backpacking is a form of low-cost, independent travel. It includes the use of a backpack that is easily carried for long distances as well as short periods of time, the use of public transport, and inexpensive lodging such as youth hostels. It can be done for short or long duration of a trip and is typically coupled with an interest in meeting locals, seeing sights and treks.

    The Experience:
    At a height of 9000 feet and spread across the Himalayas, Ladakh has the essence of backpacking flowing through the city. Your first look at the city and you will all in love with vast stretches of mountains, sneak-peaks of snow, the sound of water passing by and the hospitality of the people. With Ladakh’s mysterious way of life and its humble people, a backpacking trek to Ladakh is a lifetime experience, something every backpacker is looking for.
    This trip is one of the most looked for trip amongst all the Ladakh Trips.

  2. Ladakh Adventure Trip

    Life away from life - adventure travel

    The word ‘Ladakh’ means ‘Land of Passes’. On the way from Manali to Leh, there are 5 high-altitude passes (Rohtang, Baralacha-la, Namik-la, Lachunga-la, Tanglang-La). They offering spectacular view of the world’s highest routes between the snow clad mountain ranges of Ladakh and Zanskar. We think that experiencing unique beauty of this mountain-highway is experiencing Ladakh in a true sense.
    The white water rafting is done in the world famous Zanskarriver.  The route is very adventurous and ends at the confluence of Indus and Zanskarriver at Nimu.
    The trekking is done in the world famous Sham valley. This trek crosses streams, astounding landscapes, beautiful villages. We would camp one night in tents and have dinner over a camp fire in the valley.
    The Ladakh Adventure trip is one of the most exciting trips in the world.

  3. Ladakh Monastic Festivals trip

    Monastic festivals of ladakh

    The monastic festivals are annual events of the major monasteries which the local people eagerly look forward to attending, both for attaining religious merit and as a means of social entertainment. These are generally held to commemorate the establishment of a particular monastery, the birth anniversary of its patron saint or some major events in the history and evolution of Tibetan Buddhism. People turn out in the thousands to attend these festivals in their colourful best, making every event a carnival of colours.

  4. Ladakh Jeep Safari

    The word ‘Ladakh’ means ‘Land of Passes’. On the way from Manali to Leh, there are 5 high-altitude passes (Rohtang, Baralacha-la, Namik-la, Lachunga-la, Tanglang-La). They offering spectacular view of the world’s highest routes between the snow clad mountain ranges of Ladakh and Zanskar. We think that experiencing unique beauty of this mountain-highway is experiencing Ladakh in a true sense.

    Flying from Mumbai to Delhi to Leh means reaching from the sea-level to 12000ft (Leh) within a couple of hours. This can is invite high altitude sickness (headache, vomiting, nausea) no matter how fit you are. Whereas, if you take a Jeep Safari from Manali to Leh over two days your body can slowly acclimatize to this altitude change, making you fitter to enjoy the rest of the trip.

  5. Kang Yatse 2 Trekking Expedition.

    Kang Yatse expedition

    1. Ladakh has several fascinating peaks to its credit, Kang Yatse being one of them. With a height of about 6400 meters, the trek to the top of it is adventurous and arduous. It  takes you through some amazing valleys, some beautiful rivers and some really quaint villages that give a glimpse into the local life of people here.

      You even come across some monasteries along the trek, which adds a bit of spirituality to this Ladakh trekking experience. We start our excellent trek from Spituk near Leh and cross pass of Ganda la before entering into Markha valley. A entire Markha valley is an evidense of old civilisation which has been passes through it and can still find ruins of castle and forts along the trek.Trekking along the Markha river enroute we pass through barley fields, beautiful villages, and experiencing daily life of Ladakh people. We climb to an open pasture of Nimaling, and climb gradually to the base camp. With a panoramic view finally ascending to left shoulder peak of kangyatse.We also cross pass of kongmaru la.
