Journey to Ladakh, India


Often called "Little Tibet," Ladakh is one of the last places in the world where the Buddhist way of life is unpressed and many Tibetan refugees have settled here. The region was once an independent Buddhist kingdom at the crossroads of the Silk Road between China and the Middle East. Ladakh is now part of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir in one of the northernmost regions in India, and although it is a remote part of India, it is a destination that Global Family Travels will always travel to. Join Global Family Travels' Founder and CEO, Jennifer Spatz as she shares her expertise and vibrant images of the region along with practical advice on what you need to know to prepare for a trip to Ladakh! Learn more about Global Family Travels Ladakh: Learn, Serve & Immerse itinerary, which includes the opportunity to contribute meaningfully in the village of Stok by living, working and learning with a host Ladakhi family, and to participate in a community service project with students from the Siddhartha School Project. During the home-stay part of our tour, your family will be immersed in the Ladakhi communal culture and gain a deep understanding of the Buddhist culture and traditions of this stunning region.
