What a wonderful place is Ladakh. And thanks to Behzad Larry, Rashid, and Australian cultural photographer, Robert van Koesveld, we have seen the very best of it. Voygr – you are unique. You offer it all. So knowledgeable: history, geography, religion, culture, wild life, conservation, photography. And, most special, the personal engagement with the beautiful Ladakhi people in villages, monasteries and nomad camps, and the flexibility to stop wherever, whenever, to chat to interesting locals and take photographs. Every day was jam packed with photographic opportunity, serendipitous encounters and magic moments, but we never felt rushed.
We have never encountered a company with leaders, guides and interpreters so committed and so caring, and such delightful company. Easygoing and fun. But behind the scenes, every detail is covered – our trust in you complete. We felt safe. Great drivers, and the fabulous homecooked, food was plentiful and ‘clean’.
‘Off the beaten track’, driving across the Tibetan Plateau, following the tracks of the nomads and camping alongside their yaks and gorgeous pashmina goats was a highlight. As were prayers with Buddhist monks in 10th century monasteries perched high up in the oh-so-scenic mountains, joining in song at wheat harvest and dining in the ancient caravanserai. Brilliant.
So Voygr, thank you for such a joyful trip, and for opening our eyes to a part of the world about which we knew so little. Only 5 stars? You deserve 100! Sensational!
