Difficulty Level: Challenging (Includes Class II, III & IV Rapids)Organised & led by Aquaterra Adventures, this "special" photo-feature drives through most of western Ladakh (Jammu & Kashmir, India), monasteries, palaces, villages, hikes and travel to one of the most surreal places on the planet. Starting the trip on the Stod River, we begin our self-contained, multi-day, river adventure down the spectacular and scenic Zanskar river gorge. The trip takes you down the extremely desolate, remote and sheer Zanskar gorge with walls rising a few thousand feet out of the river bed, culminating on the mighty Indus River (which incidentally lends India, its name). We finish with spending a couple of days in Leh town, acclimatizing at 11,000 feet above sea level and visiting the ancient monasteries, palaces and villages around Leh.
I’m Ranjan Pal, avid traveller, up-for-anything adventurer, passionate extrovert, and ever-curious explorer of this fascinating world we call home. I’ve lived and worked in the USA, Hong Kong, and India, and donned many hats over the years - economist, investment banker, educationist, fundraiser, and now full-time travel writer and blogger. I’m fortunate my amazing family - wife Saroj and daughters Tarini and Mallika - allow me to indulge my wanderlust and sometimes even join me.
Adventure travel is my main focus followed by wine and food, golf, culture, history & nature. My travel choices revolve around places with white water rafting & high altitude trekking so putting together trips around these activities is something I specialize in. I believe it's never too late to discover and indulge in one's adventurous side and my forte lies in advising 40-plus-year-olds on how best to get their adventure fix!
