What was the weather in India, a country bursting with contradictions that you can lose your heart to without realizing it. It happens to me every time…
From a homestay in Ulley at 4,500m altitude overlooking the Zankar Ridge – a mountain range of more than 6,000m adorned in eternal snow – I will look for the mystical ‘mountain ghost’, the snow leopard. A predator that lives in harsh conditions of the highest peaks of the Himalayas and is so rare and little spotted that it is on the bucket list of every wildlife enthusiast.
Friendly, safe, rich in culture and national parks full of wildlife, the country where even the street food is ‘divine’; Thailand is for everyone! It is high time to experience this in person, and also to make use of the central location in Southeast Asia. By invitation I visit the attractions in Chiang Rai and Chiang Mai, take a trip to the beautiful Luang Prabang (Laos), and finish this eight-day adventure in Bangkok with a lively night out.
“A melting pot of so many cultures, empires, fortresses, beautiful colonial buildings, palaces and a world-class nature. This combined with local guides who can deliver customer service to a high level, every day, and where every restaurant is a culinary adventure. I can recommend everyone to make this trip!” said Jozef Verbruggen about his trip through southern India.
Six years ago I visited it already, this particular part of India, Ladakh. Located in the Himalayan mountain region one hour’s flight from Delhi. I was wondering if it would make such a crushing impression on me again as it did then. This time I travel in the company of travel agents who will first get acquainted with this part of India, most of them for the first time with India, a country that always guarantees a special travel experience.
