Road trip to Leh Ladakh is not just about the amazing views, mountain peaks, off-roading, valleys, lakes, mountain passes.
It is also about spending 9 days on road with people, like-minded people with whom you will spend time when there is patchy or no network, interact when there is nothing else to do, sing songs when your mobile is low on charge, gaze stars near the lake when there is no light...
But our experience tells us that you will definitely make a much better connection. Friends, you stay in touch with, travel with forever just coz you share a different connect, a different bond.
It's not all about traveling together, but connecting and traveling together forever.
