Spectacular hues of blue,
The undulating barren landscapes,
Warm smiles, the starry skies, and the indescribable stillness…
The whisper of the cool breeze against your skin…
A playful stream gushing over your bare feet…
A bear hug to an ancient tree that has seen 2000 years of history…
A heart-to- heart conversation with a wise old lake…
and the sheer joy of being present… being alive

 

Bask in the immense warmth & wisdom of the Ladakhis, soak yourself in their fascinating culture & marvelous stories, and build some wonderful memories of this once-in- a-lifetime experience as the adventure unfolds.

If you’re interested in more than just ‘seeing’ places, you will love what’s on offer on this Journeys With Meaning visit.

The Ladakh trip I took with JwM was an experience I will cherish the rest of my life. The places and landscapes have left a lasting impression on me. The Ladakhi people I met and their way of life have given me a different perspective while thinking about the planet’s sustainability. I have always been an avid traveler but never really cared about the long-term effects my travels had on the places I hold so dear. JwM has opened me to counting the ecological cost of every decision we take – air-travel vs train/road, drinking water vs bottled water, imported vs locally sourced fruits and vegetables. etc.

 

It’s good to know that every little action we take towards sustainability would have a significant effect on preserving our only home, Planet Earth. I would recommend making such ecological trips mandatory for all school and college going kids.
