The Land of High Passes, Ladakh, the newly created Union Territory in India (previously a part of Jammu & Kashmir), boasts a landscape that can leave you with your jaws dropped. It is a place where the landscape changes dramatically; it is truly astonishing to see the mountains, snow, cold desert, alpine meadows and lakes at a short distance from each other. Tourism in Ladakh is an absolute delight for nature lovers as well as adventurers.

Ladakh is home to some of the highest motorable passes like Khardung La (5359 m), Marsimik La (5582 m), and Chang La (5360 m), and alpine lakes like Pangong Tso (4350 m) and Tso Moriri (4522 m). Ladakh is further divided into three regions - Leh, Nubra, and Zanskar, and each region has several places to see.

Okay..so I booked this trip from Journey basket for Chopta. Didn’t expect much from it in the beginning as I’m a traveller and like to explore new hiking destinations myself. However, to my surprise, Journey basket just flipped the perception for me. It went great and I enjoyed every bit of it.
The camps were nice and spacious with good hygiene. They were well equipped with warm beddings considering the December winters.
Our tour coordinators Pankaj, Gaurav and Ayush Balli managed the group pretty well with various group activities to indulge every individual.
We did two treks - Tungnath temple and Doriyatal trek. Treks were an ultimate fun and an amazing experience!!
Well, the best is yet to come.. Journey Basket had arranged an amazing New Years Party with DJ and dance.. One couldn’t expect much !!

Lastly, Thank you Journey Basket for this great memorable experience!
Would like to recommend this to all. Please try different treks from Journey basket, but start with Chopta!! 👍🏻😬

I went on a trip last week to chopta with journey basket and It was a memorable experience for me. The food was yum and the stay was also comfortable. Our trip leader SHAIM was very helpful and cheerful throughout the trip. I would suggest my other friends too about journey basket.

My trip went unexpectedly well. Shaim who was our trek lead, kept me motivated to climb the Chandrashila peak and I did it effortlessly because of him. The food and stay was comfortable and the campfire was a cherry on top. Overall, I loved every bit of the trip. Thank you.!!
