ladakh advice 5 weeks june 2014

hi

planning trip to ladakh for about 4 to 5 weeks in june 2014. we have been to india a number of times but not ladakh.

questions

1 I want to do about a 2 to 3 week trek my wife wants to do shorter treks. what do you think is best? we are looking to do independent trekking staying at homestays along the way.

2 is touring around nearby leh by motorbike possible? is it a good idea? what is the charge per day?

3 white water rafting in grade 1 to 3? any advice?

thanks. it is awhile before we go but this will be part of a longer trip for myself so I wanted to start to planning now.

Dear rockterrigal,

1 I want to do about a 2 to 3 week trek my wife wants to do shorter treks. what do you think is best? we are looking to do independent trekking staying at homestays along the way.

....There are tons of websites for trek in ladakh please go thru...

2 is touring around nearby leh by motorbike possible? is it a good idea? what is the charge per day?

......obviously and highly recommended...You can tour by bike in nubra valley until turtuk, pangong lake, tso kar and tso moriri and to to kargil in th west...there are lot many monasteries and natural sceneries to watch for..special permits will be required from leh district magistrate office....and getting ikes for rent in leh will not be a problem...rent for bikes depend on the inflow of tourist...

3 white water rafting in grade 1 to 3? any advice?

---sry bro....no idea but i reckon it is done in zanskar river..

regards

virendra.

Snow is very rare down in the Ladakhi heartland , even in mid-winter. last time I left the week before Christmas , saw snowfall two days , never a problem for driving. Khardung La is normally open.
