Many people assume walking in the Himalayan range is only for rugged types and hiking lovers who enjoy roughing it. Fewer say that in “a hundred ages of the gods” you could not do justice to the Himalayan mountains. So where do mere mortals start?  Those who want to peace, relax and get beneath the surface of Himalayan life.


If you want to trek in 2020 summer holidays, then look further west. The people in Zanskar and Ladakh are largely Tibetan Buddhist in terms of its population but politically part of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir now union territory, are north of the Himalayan chain and enjoy much better weather in the month of July and August.
