Bucket List - Trip of a lifetime!

My sister and I had a bucket list wish of going to Ladakh. We started searching for travel companies that could arrange our trip. Voygr was by far the company with the most prompt and in depth information.

Arriving in Leh we were warmly greeted by Bezhad and Rashid at the airport. We immediately felt we were in the right hands. These guys are so knowledgeable and on top of that have great senses of humour. They advised us well on how to handle the altitude and through the whole trip kept a vigilant eye on us to ensure we were always safe and well.

Bezhad and Rashid are well known and respected by many across Ladakh. They know monks and lamas at many monasteries and also many of the nomadic communities. We were so thrilled that while travelling to Tso Moriri we stopped at a nomad camp and were invited into their tents to say hello as Rashid was friends with them. When in Nubra Valley we got to see The Dalai Lama up close because of the contacts these guys have. This trip delivered everything we could have hoped for and more.

Voygr is the best in the business!

If you are currently researching tour operators for your trip to Ladakh, you can stop searching now. Voygr is not only the best choice – from here on out it will be my ONLY choice, regardless of the difference in cost. Other tour companies in India sub-contract random local guides and drivers, leaving you on your own if things don’t go according to plan. Not Voygr – the people you talk to during your pre-vacation planning stages are the same ones that will be there with you during the tour. During our month-long trip to India last month, we booked 2 separate tour companies for different destinations. We had the unique opportunity to experience both types of tours and, believe me, it makes a big/huge difference in the quality of your experience. Voygr is the way to go, hands down.

My fiancée and I wanted to see Leh, Nubra Valley and Pangong Lake in a very short time and, at the same time, get help with our new photography hobby. Voygr was able to handle these demands with ease. Both Behzad and Rashid taught us so much about how to use our cameras and photography concepts in general. Behzad even gave us a PowerPoint presentation on photography and let my fiancée borrow a couple of lenses during our trip.

They were professional, extremely knowledgeable, and prepared for anything. During our stay at Pangong Lake, my fiancée ended up needing oxygen. The campsite was supposed to have a supply of oxygen, but didn’t. Rashid came to the rescue with a tank that Voygr brings on every trip. Beware – this trip is not for the faint of heart. The high altitude/lack of oxygen combined with the bumpiness of the roads throughout the mountains makes for quite a difficult ride; however, we felt extremely safe with Rashid driving. He definitely knows his way around the mountains!

As for our accommodations, The Kesar in Nubra valley was a great stay with delicious food and a beautiful garden. The Hermitage “tent” at Pangong Lake was wonderful. It was located far enough away from all the other touristy places that you truly felt isolated.

We came away with beautiful pictures, profound experiences, and a ton of knowledge – not just about photography, but about the places we visited. We can’t thank them enough – both Behzad and Rashid were amazing! They exceeded all of our expectations during the trip. We will gladly refer all of our friends and family to Voygr for tours in the Ladakh region.

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.
