Trip of a lifetime
We wanted to visit Ladakh and Rajasthan and asked Rashid, who we met 10 years ago when he led us on a trek to the Nanda Devi East Base Camp, and who impressed us then by his attention to detail and caring attitude, to organise a trip for us. And we were not disappointed. He and his staff took care of all arrangements regarding accomodation and travel, and in Ladakh the permits required to visit Hemis National Park and the Nubra Valley. Himself Ladakhi he shared his vast knowledge of the culture, wildlife and history of the country and we marvelled at the majestic mountains and beautiful isolation of the Nubra Valley and Pangong Lake after crossing the Khardung La mountain pass, the highest motorable road in the world!. In Hemis we stayed in a Homestay in Rumbuk, experiencing the extremely difficult life lived by these hardy mountain people. But unfortunately, we didn’t spot any snow leopards!
Our trip round Rajasthan was very different but equally enjoyable, thanks to Rashid’s planning and organisation. We arrived in Jodhpur for the 2 day Marwar festival of Rajasthani folk music and dance, visited a Marwari horse stud farm in Narlai and the Ranthambore national park where we were fortunate to see 6 tigers. And the splendour and magnificence of the palaces, forts and temples are just stunning.
Rashid accompanied us on the whole trip and he and Jitu our driver in Rajasthan, were very amicable and fun travel companions, and knowledgeable, also very helpful and reassuring if you have a problem. We can highly recommend Voygr and Rashid for their professional approach to planning and organising your trip and the care and attention they give to make sure you have the experience you expect. Not cheap but the attention to detail and the trouble they go to to make your trip trouble free and memorable can’t be matched.
