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 travelling together, but connecting and wraveling together forever.
Ladakh, the highest plateau in India covers an area of about 85000 sq. km. Being the northernmost part of the country it extends from the Himalayas to Kunun Ranges and includes the upper Indus valley.

Amazing life experience.
It was my first ever road trip. I came with lot of inhibitions but the Wravelers team made it easy for us to manage in those harsh weather conditions. Even before the trip started I interacted with Manu for smallest queries and he would patiently respond to each query. My experience had started even before we hit the road. They gave apt instructions and if followed no one would fall sick or have AMS. Managing over 40 people in one trip is no joke. I would never forget we have got food at 3am after traveling for over 10 hours at the hotel we stayed in Leh. Everything including Food, Stay and people were extremely well managed by the team. But I would like to give special mention to Shadab Ahmed who managed 2 tempo travelers all by himself. So many temperaments and so many people always make it difficult specially for the ones who manage. Every wrong thing often gets these guys in trouble coz they have taken the responsibility. But the way he handled each situation was commendable. Yes, not everything is always good there are always opportunities to learn and improve but due credit must be given where deserved. Giving up is the easiest way out but they were patient irrespective of the weather conditions or the situations. We had a successful trip back in a single piece with so many memories. Thank you team JustWravel for an amazing raw experience at such high altitudes. Looking forward to more such trips with you guys.
It was the greatest experience that I have ever had with any of the tour organizers. I had enjoyed my time with the JustWravel and the tour they organized was beyond my expectations. Our tour lead Shadab was very helpful and he made our trip a memorable experience.
whatta trip man! it was my first solo trip(ladakh) with jutwravel had an amazing experience... Cheers to all Hyderabadi's :P such a great people .... our trek leader Shadab Ahmed young and smart was very helpful and supportive,arrangements everything were amazing ..
