Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • Why are they no departures outside of July and August?

    This tour is only offered in July and August because of the snowy weather conditions so the booking season is very short. Also, flights do not operate between Delhi and Leh in the winter so you would have the same experience if travelling at other times.
