It is no surprise, therefore, why many seek out Kashmir Leh Ladakh tour packages by NFTT World all year round. If you’re a first time visitor to this beautiful destination, here’s a guide to make your trip remarkable.

Pack for every weather

With its stunning vistas, Leh-Ladakh is often considered a place that is cooler in climate, no matter the time of the year. But don’t make the mistake of packing only bulky clothing as an escape from the cold. The temperature out here is rather unpredictable and can leave you with regrets if you pack wrong. Be sure to bring clothing that is light and can be layered without making you feel suffocated. Your sunglasses, sunscreen, water bottles, hats, and a first aid kit are as crucial an addition to your packing list.

Keep in mind the change in altitude

If you’re planning a tour for Leh-Ladakh, a prominent thing to remember is the change in altitude. Leh-Ladakh is positioned at an elevation of 11,550 ft above sea level and can take  a while for you to get acclimatised. Make sure you get used to this altitude change one day at a time before venture towards even higher altitudes.

Be one with the locals

The best way to truly immerse yourself into a new place is by understanding its cultures and traditions. Leh-Ladakh has no dearth of unique traditions and practices specific to this region. The captivating monasteries, temples, and stunning sights make being spiritually attuned to the local offerings a breeze. Take the time to learn every custom and culture with respect and reverence.

Indulge in some breathtaking adventure

While there is much to see out here, don’t forget to be part of the thrilling adventure activities accessible for tourists and natives alike. From boating and hiking to camel-back riding, there is much that your tour for Leh-Ladakh can offer you.

Respect the beauty of the land

Anywhere you travel, make sure you respect the place and leave behind nothing but good memories. Your carbon footprint and plastic usage at these pristine sites do more harm than good when you’re not responsible. Do you part and make sure your presence out here is a positive one.
