Ladakh is one of the best places to visit in the world, magnificent in purview and intriguing in the detail and wide range of its experiences.

Things to do in Leh Ladakh

  1. Ladakh Chadar Trek – Frozen River Trek


Ladakh is home to various natural wonders, but the Chadar Trek is the most precious gift conferred upon this mythical realm. The trek is all about perseverance and survival – learning to sustain in brutal terrains at sub-zero temperatures, conversing with locals, and knowing their way of life, especially in one of the world’s most unlivable regions, while trekking across a dramatic canyon with frozen fountains on the frozen path of Zanskar, which acts as a reflector for the sky! The primordial excitement of resting in caves, ruminating over fiery bonfires in freezing temperatures with an ever-present sense of threat, and surviving it all is going to be very memorable.

  1. Motor Biking


Motorbiking excursions in Ladakh are becoming more popular.  While traveling from Manali, you will pass through the Rohtang Pass, Darcha, Tang Lang La, as well as Baralach La crossings, all of which are in the Leh valley and feature the magnificent Indus River.

You can also extend your excursion to Khardung La pass, the world’s highest motorable road, Pangong Lake, Tso Moriri Lake, as well as other locations. Along the way, you’ll be able to take in the ever-changing scenery and climate.

  1. Markha Valley Trek


Begin your journey to the Markha Valley in the Leh and Ladakh region on this incredible and adventuresome trip. Show up in Leh on your first day and spend the day exploring the town and its beautiful tourist attractions to acclimate.

On the second day, take a transfer from Leh to the road-head, where your journey will begin, and then trek for about 3 hours to Yurutse via Zinchen. 

  1. Cycling


Cycling is one of the most popular activities in Ladakh. There are numerous slopes where you can enjoy a great spectacle of stunning features while cycling on quiet roads, occasionally chatting with friendly locals and taking in the changing scenery and the magnificence of the tall snow-covered mountains. Cycling can be difficult at times due to the difficult topography, but adventurers enjoy the thrill of such trails.

  1. Look for the Snow Leopard.


Hemis National Park, also known as the Snow Leopard Capital of the World, is the greatest spot in Ladakh to see snow leopards. In this region, the chances of spotting a snow leopard are roughly 50%. These Ladakh tourist attractions are at the top of the must-see list because they allow visitors to see the magnificent, allusive snow leopard, and it is one of the greatest things to do in Ladakh.

  1. Rafting on the Indus River


The Indus River flows through the desert region of Ladakh. While rafting in this Ladakh river, you can take in some breathtaking natural beauty as the river winds through gorges in the Ladakh and Zanskar ranges. The river is divided into sections with varying degrees of difficulty. However, there is no denying that this gives you an immense rush of adrenaline as well as a breathtaking view of the areas around the river banks.

  1. Camel and Yak Safari


Camel hiking or camel safari was perhaps the most frequent type of commerce transportation in Ladakh 3-4 centuries ago. It is still primarily practiced in the Nubra valley between Hundar and Diskit. The Bactrian camels, or double-humped camels, can only be found in this region, and it is one of the most incredible things to do in Ladakh. These camels are distinguished by the fact that they store fat rather than water inside their humps. Camel safari tours are also available and have grown in popularity among visitors. Yaks, or Dong as the locals call the animal, are enormous in size, standing about 6 feet tall and weighing close to 1000 kilograms. Yak Safari in Ladakh’s desert lands is a unique experience because you get to enjoy earth’s immaculate beauty, peaceful blue lakes, cavernous green valleys, and kingly snow-peaked mountain ranges standing strong on all sides. Yaks are native to this rough terrain and can quickly survive the rigors of such a safari.
