Punjab Kashmir Ladakh

 

Description

This vast and varied package starts from the National Capital Delhi.

We experience the planned township of Chandigarh with a touch of modern living too. Next we start for Dharamshala, the abode of Dalai Lama - representative of Tibetan Buddhism. Dharamshala has been established for this peculiar Buddhism, so much so that we get acquainted with the history and traditions of Tibet in here. Next we proceed towards seeing the history of Sikhism at the Golden Temple, at Amritsar. We pay homage to the martyrs of historical Jallianwala Bagh. We watch the soldiers' parade at Wagha Border dividing India and Pakistan. We start for the state of Jammu & Kashmir. We familiarize ourselves with Dal Lake and Shikara ride (houseboat). Further we may get to know the Sufism in the valley, feel & experience the beauty of natural abundance in and around Jhelum river and gardens. Further we move towards Buddhist monasteries at Leh / Ladakh. And lo ! We get a flight from Leh to Delhi, the National Capital of India. One full day for sight-seeing Delhi. Well. You are sure you have grasped the package well. Thanks.


ARRIVAL AT DELHI 

BEFORE WE START WE WISH TO EMPHASIZE THAT THE DETAILS OF SITES OR PLACES IN OUR TOURS DO NOT REMAIN RESTRICTED OR CONCLUSIVE. ON THE CONTRARY WE MEET MUCH MORE IN OUR WAY TO OUR DESTINATIONS.

We welcome you at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and escort you to the selected hotel for an overnight stay. 

DELHI TO CHANDIGARH
Good Morning, Delhi !
We start for Chandigarh, the capital of two states, viz., Punjab & Haryana and yet, a Union Territory of India.

Chandigarh is an example of the modernizing desires of Independent India. Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru commissioned Le Corbusier to design a city that would demonstrate the will & desires of the young Republic to bet on development and rationality. Chandigarh is a superfine experiment with its rationalist urbanism, its landscaped areas and its concrete architecture, and the locals claim that it is a great place to live in. It's worth a visit to the Rock Garden and the Rose Garden.
Overnight stay at hotel.

CHANDIGARH TO DHARAMSHALA

We are prepared to leave for Dharamshala (Himachal Pradesh). Surrounded by cedar forests at the edge of the Himalayas, Dharamshala is home to Dalai Lama, the chief representative of Tibetan Buddhism. This hillside city and its surroundings are reminiscent of Tibetan Buddhism and, therefore, we come into contact with this community like nowhere else outside Tibet. We see magnificent paddies and women dressed in a hundred colors working therein.
We stay at Mcleod Ganj, popularly known as the “Little Lhasa” because it has been the headquarters of the Tibetan government-in-exile.
Overnight stay in hotel.

DHARAMSHALA

McLeod Ganj it being the crossroad(s) allows us to make pleasant walks. 
From the village, a short walk takes us to the Temple of the Dalai Lama (the chief of the Tibetan Buddhism), his official residence. We may learn a few things about prayer and meditation here. Tibetan monks and nuns are always kind and cooperative towards any inquiries about their religion and philosophy*.

We may visit Bhagsunag a famous waterfall in here. Overnight stay in hotel.

*Recommendation: Attend the dialectic exercises that take place in the afternoons in the Dalai Lama Temple. The young monks engage in discussions about the topics of study with a peculiar form of debate.

DHARAMSHALA TO AMRITSAR
Good Morning, Lord Buddha !
We have got the blessings from you; Thank you.  We take leave of you now.
We leave for Amritsar, i.e., back to Punjab.  

Amritsar has been the home to the Golden Temple, the Harimandir Sahib and Akal Takht (one of the five highest seats of the Sikhism).  
At Golden Temple, the loud reading from Guru Granth Sahib (the Final Doctrine of Sikhism) continues 24 x 7 accompanied by occasional ritual songs / Kirtan with simplified music instruments.
At night the Holy Book leaves the Golden Temple in a multitudinous procession.  Well.  The traditions of the Sikhism do fascinate us all.  
Overnight stay at hotel.

 

AMRITSAR

Amritsar is the home to the historical Golden Temple (one of the five highest seats of the Sikhs), Durgiana Temple (similar architecture to that of the Golden Temple), and Ram Bagh Gardens (Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s residence for summer), Jallianwala Bagh (a historical spot of one of the most infamous massacres in the India’s War of Freedom) and the Wagha Border between India & Pakistan – famous for its daily ceremony. And obviously, all these sites will be visited during the course of the day. 
The typical offering by the devotees at the Golden Temple remains a sweet semolina including syrup (the Karrah Prashad) which is made holy & pure by the cut & touch of the Kirpaan (a small dagger) at the Hari Mandir Sahib (Golden Temple). 

Overnight stay at hotel.

AMRITSAR > JAMMU TO SRINAGAR (FLIGHT)

Good Morning, Amritsar !
Sat Sri Akal !
We have got the blessings from the Golden Temple and Durgiana Temple too.  And now we leave for the State of Jammu & Kashmir.  We reach Jammu.  
At Jammu we take a flight to Srinagar, the capital of Jammu & Kashmir.
Srinagar is located between mountains of luish vegetation on the shore(s) of world-famous Dal Lake.And the lifestyle or living in Shikaras (houseboats) in the lake has been peculiar in here.
Overnight stay in a Shikara.

 

SRINAGAR

The original identity of Kashmir has been the Sufism (mysticism) that included saints from Hinduism and Islam too.  Kashmir was / has been the shelter for the Rishis (Hindu saints of very high caliber) and Islamic mystics too.  We can still try to feel and experience Sufism in Kashmir.   
Kashmir was traditionally more linked to Central Asia than to India, so we may have the feeling of having crossed an ethnic and cultural border.  Historical beautiful gardens still mesmerize us. 
The people of Kashmir still remain simply emotionally attached to foreign tourists because tourism has been almost their chief occupation and provided them with massive employment. 
Overnight stay in a houseboat.

 

SRINAGAR TO KARGIL

In the morning, we will begin our two-day journey to the Ladakh region. The exit of Srinagar will allow us appreciate the scenic beauty of this state. We will make a stop in Sonamarg known for its glacier which is You can ascend on the back of a horse. Then the journey, of great beauty, goes into the landscapes of high Himalayan mountain passing by the port of Zoji La at 3,500 meters. The route continues to Kargil, which gives us the Welcome to Ladakh. The locality, mainly populated by Shiite Muslims, has an interesting bazaar by the that we can walk before nightfall. Night in hotel.

KARGIL > LAMAYURU > ALCHI > LEH

Good Morning ! 
We proceed towards Leh. In this second stretch of road we find several attractions.  First, we  make a stop at Mulbekh (monastery), a small village with a Buddha Maitreya carved into the rock in the VIII century.
Next we  cross the two highest points / mountain passes of the route Namika La and Fotu La that reach 4100 meters.  We  descend towards the Monastery of Lamayuru.

Lamayuru is a historical monastery with very rich collection of artefacts, wall-paintings, statues and vibrant images. The living traditions have been preserved in here since the 10thcentury. Mysterious feelings and experience are awaited & delivered everywhere around in here.
On the way back, we will stop at Alchi, another important religious center. This monastery was built in the 11th century and its mural paintings are unparalleled in the valley. Obviously Tibetan Buddhism has been attracting people because of its unique mysticism.

Overnight stay at hotel.

LEH

Leh is a city located in unique surroundings. On one hand, the Indus River flows with its waters of impossible Red-Green and Blue-Yellow colors, on the other, the peaks of the snowy Himalayas stare at us..
However, the landscape is mountainous and arid.
The Royal Palace on top of the the main hill of the city is almost an extension of the mountain.  Having arrived in Leh, we may get some time to climb to the Royal Palace, the 16th century nine-storey palace. 

At its feet, a village soul exists quietly with its market, its polo field and its small temples. It is worth visiting the Stupa de la Paz, in a walk that can be done on foot or in car. 
Overnight stay at hotel.

LEH

We spend the day knowing the surroundings of Leh. The monasteries of Hemis and Thiksey where we come to know the way of life of these communities of monks i.e., Tibetan Buddhism; dedicated to the study of human existence through individuals' conscience.
In the last monastery we can also join the morning prayer-session of the monks and share with them the prayer of the mantras. It is a moment of great solemnity. The Buddhist monasteries of Ladakh hide great gems of Buddhist art and their situation, perched on the hills, is a spectacle in itself. We return to Leh where we will have the afternoon free to walk. 
Overnight stay at hotel.

LEH TO DELHI (FLIGHT)

Good Morning, Leh ! 
We relax and walk around a little. 
After breakfast, we reach the airport to fly to Delhi. 
The National Capital welcomes us again. Sightseeing Delhi may be taken up.  We may be able to spend the evening visiting one of the most interesting historical spot turned modern in the city: the Hauz Khas Village. For some years, this isolated core has concentrated the activities of artists, designers and bohemians; and its gastronomic and cultural offer is unique. In addition, the streets surround a beautiful park with ruins of the Tuglukh dynasty.
Overnight stay at hotel.

DELHI

Transit to the airport is already arranged. 
We bid a sweet goodbye at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi – you embrace the finest experience & memories and leave for your home.
