Ladakh – A Land of Fascination and Wonder- A Secret Retreats journey -
This journey has been personally designed by Jigmed Wangchuk Namgyal, owner of Stok Palace,
restored and converted his home into a Heritage Hotel with the idea to preserve and share the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of Ladakh. He has lived all his life in Ladakh and shares with us here some of the best secrets to discover the Indus and NubraValleys.
Highlights of the Journey:
- Indus Valley
- Hemis Monastry
- Nubra Valley
As you journey along the roads once trodden by Tibetan monks and steeped in legends, discovering the richness and beauty of The Indus and Sham Valleys, you will feel as if you have been transported back in time. The Indus Valley is in the heart of Ladakh. Surrounded by picturesque valleys and Tibetan style architecture it is home to the Ladakhi Buddhists and their gentle Tibetan culture. At a relatively low altitude of 3400m, life in The Sham Valley is more gentle than that of the high pastures of Changtan or the valleys of Zanskar. The Sham Valley is famous for the richness and diversity of its wildlife, both flora and fauna. It is here in The Indus and Sham Valleys that you will visit some of the most celebrated and beautiful monasteries of Ladakh.
