Our team in Ladakh

With over 20 years experience guiding in and around Ladakh, our three man team in Leh and Kathmandu co-ordinates all our operations. Anghcok Ney (based in Leh), Anup Sigdel and Anurodh Rana (based in Kathmandu) all have extensive knowledge of Ladakh and the practicalities involved in trekking here. They have a team of 8 Ladakhi and Nepali guides who they have hand selected, with experience ranging from 5 to 15 years guiding in the Ladakhi Himalaya.

The team offer a range of trips for all different abilities from the shorter treks in the Indus Valley to summiting Kang Yatse II, a significant trekking peak. On all of their treks they provide good quality service in very remote locations. Using their extended team of cooks, mule drivers and specialised guides they create a comforting environment even when the trekking feels tough. The team love the adventurous nature of our Changtang Lakes and Spiti Valley and Markha Valley treks as well as being able to share the history of their homeland on the Indus Valley trip. They provide the high quality service of their Nepali brothers in a wilder location, come and see for yourself.

A word from the team

In northern India, bordered by the Himalayas in the south and the Karakoram Mountains in the north, we find Ladakh. The Buddhist culture here is remarkably preserved thanks to its isolation. Large numbers of Buddhist monasteries are still very alive and active; some, like those in Alchi, date back to the 11th century. Our trips explore the monasteries of the Indus valley, the remote villages, mineral landscapes and local people.
