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.

How it works?
