All About It
- 11 Days 10 Nights
- For 10+ years
Unplug from the hustle and plug into nature's most beautiful and adventurous Leh Ladakh All Girls Trip. To express it in the most straightforward language, the Leh Ladakh is a dream for girls who love adventurous roads, scenic valleys, barren to snowy mountains, vast flatlands to hairpin turns. All of this is combined with gushes of heavy cold wind, pushing you back from time to time, making this journey even more adventurous and exciting. Girls put their soul in friendship; from heart-to-heart conversations to crazy dance moves, we will take your enthusiasm up a notch.
Gliding on this road means weaving into the poetic rhythms, talking to self, and plugging into nature with various desolate places, offbeat trails, monasteries, high-altitude lakes and highest passes.
Safety-wise, we keep our hand on our hearts – you will be safe. To gain enough confidence about the trails, it is in our favour. BRO (Border Road Organization) takes care of the highway. Further, the whole project is divided into Project Himank and Project Deepak. Project Deepak handles the part of the highway from Manali to Sarchu (222 km); Project Himank takes care of the highway from Sarchu to Leh.
Handling AMS on this road trip will be our utmost priority because you will be above an altitude of 14000 ft for more than 300 km. Our leaders will be taking time to time surveys of your health. Let them know if you feel anything out of the world.
With that confirmed, Plan the Unplanned team invites you on an 11-day off-the-track Leh Ladakh All Girls trip. You will be doing many things along with getting high doses of adrenaline. Check out the itinerary and book your next slot.

Witnessing the magical confluence of the Indus and Zanskar river.
Pathar Gurudwara Sahib is the most revered place for both followers of Buddhism and Sikhism. According to legend, Guru Nanak Ji conquered a demon here, who threw a big rock on him while he was meditating. The rock turned to soft wax, and Guru Nanak Ji was rendered unaffected. Seeing this, the demon turned into a good man and accepted the nobility of Guru Nanak Ji.
Magnetic hill is mainly compared to an enigma, and some say it is an optical illusion. It is a gravity hill that looks like such because of its area. In truth, the mountain is a downhill road, but it appears as if the vehicles are climbing up. Along with this phenomenon, it is a beautiful drive with dozens of cars trying to defy gravity and finally coming out amazed.
If you are a history lover, you would like to visit the Hall of Fame. It was built in 1986 to showcase the valour of the Indian Army. It portrays weapons, accounts of the courageous soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the nation and exhibits about the Indian Army.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true.
