Ladakh Zanskar Trek - July 30, 2018
It is a week we returned from our holidays. We want to give you a feedback about our impressions. The holidays were wonderful, impressive and ambitious. The 2nd day Dorjay came to our hotel and “interviewd” us – we think to find the suitable guides. Our guide for the first days was Rigzen. We liked each other very much. He knew everything. We had so many questions that our visits to the monasteries always took longer than planned and our days finished quite late. He also got very creative a date with a doctor as one groupmember slept 3 nights not well and then had to take Diamox. After that it became better. In Lamayuru in the evening we attended a puja with approx. 40 monks. Rigzen also took us to a feast in his village, where a family celebrated something like a birthday/growing-up of their 2 sons. We had a very nice time together. Then we met our trekkingteam in Moonland Hotel. Sonam our guide, Tulak our cook from Nepal, 2 helpers and 2 ponymen and 10 (!) horses. A medium expedition. It was an awesome tour. Ambitious for our stamina especially the 2 passes Pikdong-la and Kanji-la. We were quite slow, but didn't do many breaks. Sonam was very patient and took my sister-in-law by her hand, when during the descents her power was not enough to walk secure. Sonam is a very professional and nice guide, patient, reluctant and foresighted. He is a very nice human being. He is at home in the mountains since his youth. The longer the tour took, the more we became friends with him. He knows the cook more than 10 years. So the one knew what the other was doing. Everything made sense! We were always surprised, what Tulak cook for us in these conditions. There should be 2-300 Trekking agencies in Leh. We just assume, that not everywhere it is like with our team. The horsemen have been of the fittest people we ever met. Already before breakfast they went up 500 m in search for the horses. And everything with crocs at their feet. Also the helpers have done an enor...

Leh Ladakh - August 10, 2015
Dear Overland Escape, My family just returned back from Leh and we all agreed that we left part of our heart there - and one of the biggest reasons why was our experience with the team at Overland Escape. From the moment we arrived everything was smooth and the orientation and meetings at the hotel were very helpful. We were expertly driven to see the sights with Doulje and we quickly became comfortable with him and his very easy going spirit (which was perfect with two kids). He adapted very well to our personality and we shared good laughs. We had quite the adventure with Lobzang, Tulag and Tanzing. The rains interrupted our itinerary, but we always felt comfortable and safe with the decision making ability of the team. When we decided to make the best of it by camping in Zeng Chen they made sure they could make it as special as possible. Dinner that evening was amazing! A very special thank you to Lobzang who really looked after our 8-year old son Alex. Alex especially felt a connection with him and Lobzang was very patient and friendly. I know that creating a special experience for others is not about luck - it's about working hard to build a team of good people and having pride in what you do and where you live. The magic is about making it seem easy even though I know it's not and the team worked really hard. My family will remember this very special experience and we can't wait to come back again. Sincerely, Christina, Brian, Kathlin and Alex AiChang Denver, Colorado...

Leh Ladakh - February 25, 2015
Me and the guys had a really great time in leh. It was our 2nd 3rd time in leh and first time in winter. It was real fun. And the facilities from your side were perfect. And the last day when we completed our trek from hinju to wanla we had planned to stay in tents for that night. But my friends wanted to go home so i had no say in the coming back thing and it was all due to their fatigue. The guide Mr Lobzang was very helpful. Also the cooks were amazing. Our driver Mr Dorjey was also very courteous and helpful. And the people at Hotel Lotus!! This Leh winter has been truly amazing. This was my first time with overland, but surely not the last. I will surely recommend it to all my friends. This Leh winter was an amazing experience. Thanks to your overland team....

Markha Valley, Kang Yatze, Nubra Valley - July 09, 2014
Overland Escape helped us discover the amazing Nubra Valley, then guided us through the spectacular Markha Valley trek and also arranged for a successful summit bid on Kang Yatze 2 (6200m). An amazing trek! Overland were professional and friendly. Our guide (Namgyal) and support team were fantastic and we would highly recommend them to any one wanting to experience the wonders of Ladakh. We would love to return and will certainly be in touch with Overland Escape to plan our next adventure....
