Favourites of Ladakh

A selection of some of my favourite memories of the this beautiful region. Due to the success and interest of this past trip we will be running another two in Aug/Sept 2011.

If you are interested please email [email protected] Note that we try to run these trips as  environmentally senstively as possible i.e. no bottled water , we carry out all we take in,  leaving no trace at our campsites, respecting the Ladakhi culture as we go.

Pedaling has been natural to me since the tender age of three. Cycling is practical, fun, it gets you to the corner café, across countries, continents, keeps you fit and is by far the most efficient and environmentally friendly transport option around, being virtually carbon neutral.

I live in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal which is great cycling country, within 10 minutes I can be bouncing along some of the finest single tracks in the province.

    Hi Bridget, I enjoyed your talk at the Museum in Pmburg so much. I envy your enthusiasm but, even more, your ability to ride up all those mountains!!! We are hoping to visit Rajasthan and Ladakh next September, but will hopefully find an english speaking driver/guide to drive us around. Not sure whether to brave those terrifying roads and drivers in a BigBus or a car!! Regards, Carol Thompson
