Welcome to LungtaTravel.com - a leader in initiating eco-tourism in Ladakh
LungtaTravel is a leader in initiating eco-tourism in Ladakh, with the goal of insuring a sustainable future for the region. Founded in 1998 by the experienced guides and brothers Tsewang Gonbo, Dorje Angchuk, and Lama Dorje Tsering, LungtaTravel offers a wide range of tours and expeditions in Ladakh and Zanskar. Our itineraries emphasize natural history and culture, and include trekking and mountaineering expeditions, jeep safaris, monastery tours, cultural tours, anthropological tours, botanical tours, and assistance to researchers.
LungaTravel designs itineraries with clients in mind, whether novices new to trekking or experienced mountaineers seeking challenges. Programs range from easy family hikes to strenuous treks for individuals with a passion for adventure, and include tours focusing on village and monastic culture, or challenging treks through rugged landscapes and high passes.
LungaTravel offers Ladakh’s diversity of snow-capped peaks over 18,000’ to challenge climbers, and the Indus and Zanskar rivers to provide rafters the thrill of whitewater. For non-trekkers we offer overland jeep safaris to Ladakh from Lahaul/Spiti, and from Manali to the high altitude lakes of Tsomoriri and Pangong Tso, the picturesque Nubra valley, and the Dha Hanu and Changthang regions. A unique feature of Lunga Travel is our botanical tours, focusing on Ladakh’s abundance of high-altitude medicinal plants and traditional medicine.
LungtaTravel uses the proceeds from eco-tourism to assist the people of Ladakh. We fund community-based initiatives focusing on environmental, health, and educational activities, including guide training. A key concern is the revitalization of indigenous health care system, known in Ladakh as Sowa Riga.
