    Everything was organized and I can honestly recommend NepInSri travel to arrange your trip to India, you will surely get the best of whatever region you choose to visit.

    Having been to India a few times before, but mostly for the more classical sightings, it was time to turn to the most northern part of India for a different perspective on this vast country. And it certainly was. This mountain region offers a totally different experience of Indian nature with the most stunning and beautiful views as you cross the highest motor-able passes in the world to visit some of the most-clear blue lakes you’ll ever see. Be prepared though to spend some time for transportation between the beautiful sightings – you don’t travel fast on the mountain roads, but the view will entertain you as well as the road signs: “Please be soft on my curves”. Be aware of mountain sickness though. It’s nothing to fear, just take your precautions and follow the advice about taking it slow and relax – especially the first couple of days!

    The other major attraction of Ladakh is the friendliness and hospitality of the people. Their culture highly influenced by Tibet and the Buddhist religion. Go and visit a festival at one of the monasteries during summer, it is amazing how the monks turn a quiet everyday life in prayer, into a dance ceremony with highly decorated masks and clothing Ladakh is like a different country – and still you feel that special Indian way of life that runs through the whole country.

    I was very pleased with this trip and the way everything was organized and I can honestly recommend NepInSri travel to arrange your trip to India, you will surely get the best of whatever region you choose to visit.
