Yama Adventures is a small company offering personalized service in setting up guided treks and cultural tours for individuals or groups in the remote Himalayan region of India known as Ladakh or land of the high passes. The area is also called "Little Tibet" as the people are mostly of Tibetan origin and maintain the culture that existed in Tibet before the Chinese invasion. We also run treks in Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Bhutan, Nepal, and Tibet.
The main trekking season for Ladakh is during the summer months of June through September, but other months are possible for some treks and expeditions. The treks are fully organized by Rinchen Namgial, a native Ladakhi with extensive trekking experience. The treks are conducted in the grand Himalayan trekking tradition, where the trekkers hike with only a small day pack, and the trekking crew takes care of the tents, food, and trekkers' duffel bags. The guide leads the way, while the crew hurries on ahead to set up the tents and cook the food.
The Markha Valley trek is the most popular, but there are many other fine treks and tours through the spectacular mountains and valleys of Ladakh.
For the Ladakh Treks, Trekkers will fly into Delhi and spend the night before flying to Leh, the capital of Ladakh. After several days of acclimating to the high altitude in Leh, the treks will begin. Trekkers will return to Leh for a day or two of rest and sight-seeing after the trek and then fly back to Delhi for international departures. Our fully inclusive trek packages include all transfers to and from airports, all hotels, and all food except in Delhi. For the Nepal and Tibet treks, you fly into Kathmandu and spend the night before leaving for the trailhead.
Yama Adventures invites adventuresome individuals and groups to come with us to Ladakh and have the time of your life at an affordable price. Please contact us for more information.
