This morning, board your flight to Leh, Ladakh. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel where the remainder of the day is yours at leisure to acclimatise.
Leh is located at just over 3500m and some visitors do suffer from a little altitude sickness whether it be a headache, breathlessness or dizziness. Be sure to drink lots of ginger tea and remain hydrated. The city itself sits on the historic Silk Road and is dotted with humbling monasteries, stupas and crumbling mud houses. It is an enchanting city which is very easy to fall in love with and framed by the jagged snow-capped Himalayas.
Spend another day in Leh to acclimatise before starting your trek. You may also have the chance to participate in some conservation work in conjunction with the Snow Leopard Conservancy Trust.
