My wife and I were privileged join Voygr Expeditions’ 14-day Ladakh Photography Tour Sept 29-Oct 12, 2019 very ably lead by Behzad, Rashid and travel photographer Robert Van Koesveld.
Behzad and Rashid’s warm, friendly approach, impressive regional knowledge and genuine concern for guest comfort along with Robert’s excellent photography guidance meant that this photo/travel experience has exceeded all of our expectations.
The ~ 1000km road trip itinerary in individual vehicles covered all of the most significant Ladakhi highlights including Thiksey, Lamayuro, Alchi, Hemis and Diskit monasteries, the Nubra Valley, Tangyar village and Tso Moriri lake, with stays in a 4 star hotel back in Leh between each segment. We were also privileged to shoot portraits and have an evening meal under stars in Voygr’s refurbished Caravanserai, last used by Silk Road traders over 70 years ago.
With its considerable exposure to Ladakhi culture generally; its nomad pashmina goat, sheep and yak herders in particular, and; its stark, colourful and high-impact terrain, this trip stands out as one of our best ever travel experiences.
