Our Photographic Adventure to Zanskar is rated by Outlook Traveller as Number 1 on their Summer Special List of 20 Holidays this season.
“Its time to catch the snowmelt on your SLR as Ladakh warms up to summer. Travelling lens’s 17 day guided photo tour of the Zanskar valley has no lack of scenic moments or adrenaline highs, including a trek to Rusilla at 18,000ft. And since the snow doesn’t all melt, even in July, you get to stomp all over the DrungDrung glacier as well. Start off by acclimatising in Alchi, and then in Mulbek and Sapi. The trek proper starts on Day 5. From Rusilla, down to Bartoo and then either Tikit or Rangdum and onwards to Padum. The second highlight awaits you at Karsha, at the monastary’s Mask Dance festival on July 28th. Whether you choose to click all the excitement is up to you. But no need to leave non-trekking pals behind, or sit this one out to babysit – the non-participants can explore monasteries and villages near Sapi and take take a guided walk around Kargil’s bazaars, before catching up with you in Rangdum.
DEPARTURE July 19(ex-Leh) COST INR 95,000 per person, including meals CONTACT travellinglens.net”

The stark landscape and beauty of Ladakh has always been a photographer’s delight. Taking this a step further is Travelling Lens, offering travellers a guided photo tour of Ladakh and other surrounding areas. Whether it’s capturing the snowy climes of the Himalayas, camping, walking on the DrungDrung glacier or witnessing the Karsha Monastery Mask Dance Festival, or even rafting across the Zanskar River; it’s a mix of exploring, trekking and getting a glimpse into the lesser known aspects of Ladakh, its culture and people. Three such photography tours and workshops are slated for luly and August 2011, suited for both photographers and travel enthusiasts. Workshops range from landscape, people and street photography and portraiture, among others. And if photography isn’t a draw, then treks and adventure-based activities are options to choose from as well.
