Short info

With the last year's May tour of 2017, the following story happened:
places in the group turned out to be less than those wishing to take part in the trip.
And we repeated the tour in August, expanding the tour program with participation in the Buddhist mystery with the performance of the Dance of Tsam in the DakTok Gonpa monastery.
And it was this summer program that turned out to be ideal - we decided to keep it.

The tour will be interesting first of all to those who want to get acquainted with the culture of Tibetan Buddhism:
there will be monasteries, there will be puja, there will be mountains, there will be roads and we will try to tell as much as possible-to present with what they themselves met here, with what has become our home and refuge.

This 10-day tour of Ladakh will give an opportunity to visit the three most beautiful valleys in a very comfortable weather and in a short time and get acquainted with the most interesting from our point of view the monasteries of Ladakh:
Travel routes are built in such a way that they are radial sorties in different directions from Lech:
- Northwest: The most beautiful valley of the middle course of the Indus. Visiting Buddhist monasteries: Spituk, Alchi and Basgo.
- Southeast: landscapes of the Ladakh valley, the upper course of the Indus. Buddhist monasteries: Tiksey, Shay, DakTok and Chamdei. Lake Tso Car.
- North: Nubra Valley + the world's highest car pass Cardong La 5602m. Hot radon sources. Buddhist monasteries: Discite, Summore and Panamik.

Total, tour accent:
an acquaintance with the culture and nature of Ladakha - the land-haven of living Tibetan Buddhism.

The tour will be of interest to everyone who is interested in the culture of Tibetan Buddhism.
Also, the tour will be interesting for photographers of any level:
for a very short time and a very small budget, photographers will be able to shoot practically throughout Ladakh.
We work with tourists from Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Israel, Europe, the world.
We will be glad to see you in Ladakh!

Tour detailed description

Day 1, July 21: Delhi - Leh (air travel). Acclimatization to height. Walks around the Old Town.
Arrival at New Delhi International Airport from the country of residence.

Transfer from Delhi International Airport to the airport of domestic airlines (performed inside the airport by a free bus), and a flight on the Delhi-Leh route.
This is a common practice on our tours in Ladakh:
The flights to which the participants arrive at Delhi airport usually arrive at the D3 terminal from 2 to 5 am, then the participants immediately move to the shuttle (free shuttle) to Terminal D1 and one of the morning flights fly to Leh.
Flights to Delhi-Leh flights will be taken so that the time reserve between the external and domestic flights is at least 3-4 hours.
The Delhi-Lech air flight among the Himalayan peaks is like a kind of transition from cities to the highlands of Buddhist Ladakh.
Behind the plane's window, the dusty urban landscapes of Delhi and its environs are gradually replaced by scorched deserts, and they will be replaced by foothills, and then you - in almost one moment - you will find yourself among the magnificent peaks of the Himalayas.

Flight Delhi-Leh. Budget tour Ladakh and Nubra, July 21 - 30, 2018.

The airplane will float as if on the tunnel:
glaciers, narrow blue streams of rivers, and then on the banks of the Indus - Buddhist monastic Gonpes, plowed fields in the Indus valley and road tapes, almost not different from the height in color from the rivers.

All roads lead to Leh, Budget tour Ladakh and Nubra, July 21 - 30, 2018.

We arrive in Ladakh, the plane makes a beautiful turn over the valley (an excellent time for photography) and lands at the only airport in the valley - in the city of Leh.

And on the first day of the photo tour for the participants it is very important to pass the correct altitude acclimatization: we pass the acclimatization training, drink a lot of liquid, the first hours on arrival rest at the hotel.
After acclimatization rest in the hotel we go for a leisurely adaptation walk to the center of Lech, to the Main Market, get acquainted with the main street of Lech.
We'll finish our walk in the Soma Gompa Monastery, in the central part of Old Lech.
In the evening, a lecture on the introduction of Tibetan Buddhism into the culture.

Days 2-3, July 22-23: Buddhist mystery of DacToc Tsechu, DakTok monastery. Monastery of Chamdey.
These two days we will spend on the Buddhist mystery of DakTok Tsechu in Buddhist monastery DakTok (Tuktuk).
DacTok Gonpa is the only Buddhist monastery of the Nigmapa school in the Ladakh valley.
The very Buddhist mystery with the performance of the Tsam Dance is a strong and unforgettable energy performance.
You can read about Dance of Tsam, see photos and video in the section of our website dedicated to Tibetan Buddhism:

Buddhist mystery Dak-Tok Tsechu, Budget tour Ladakh and Nubra, July 21 - 30, 2018.

Dance Cham is always a very beautiful event filled with emotions and sensations.
But when the Deer enters the site of the Dak-Tok monastery - Time stops.
However, not only time stops, everything stops:
you stop noticing anyone around, stop breathing, stop feeling the world around you - there's only a deer dancing an unimaginable Something.
And this Something opens its wings above the earth and comes Silence, in which new worlds are born.
And this is impossible to convey in words.
All the conversations on the court stop, everyone is frozen in this Deer Dance, tears flow down the cheeks of people.

Day 4, July 24: Ancient Buddhist monastery of Alchi Gonpa.
We go up early in the morning and leave for our first remote car trip along Ladakh, down the Indus River.

The confluence of the rivers Indus and Zanskar. Budget tour Ladakh and Nubra, July 21 - 30, 2018.

Through the magnificent mountain scenery, we will move to the Buddhist monastic complex of Alchi Gonpa.
Alchi is located on the banks of the Indus River at an altitude of 3250 m and 65 km from Lech (to the west).
The rest of the day we will spend in Alchi and adjacent villages to the monastery complex.
Buddhist monastery Alchi Gonpa is a Buddhist complex of temples, whose age exceeds 1000 years.
The monastery is the four temples of different periods surrounding the village of Alchi, Alchi Gompa - the oldest and largest structure.
The monastery of Alchi is now subordinated to the abbot of the Buddhist monastery Likir Gompa.
The monastery of Alchi was built by the great lama (guru) Rinchen Sanpo (958-1055).
The monastic records mention the Tibetan aristocrat Kaldan Sherab, who lived in the middle of the XI century, some researchers consider him the founder of the monastery complex Alchi Gonpa.
The village of Alchi is included in the group of villages that make up the Alchi Monastery complex, in addition to Alchi are adjacent Mangdu and Sundang Chung (now it is the Zanskar district).
The monuments of these villages are unique in style and craftsmanship, and that's where we will go after lunch.
The monastic complex of Alchi is unique: the artistic and spiritual characteristics of Buddhism and Hinduism are intertwined here with ancient Kashmiri traditions, as a result of which the murals of the monastery are especially interesting.
In old Kashmir, Hinduism and Buddhism were equally revered, and Alchi, built by Kashmiris, bears the imprint of this style.
The frescoes of the monastery are the oldest in the Ladakh valley.
In total, only two such monastic complexes have survived on our planet, in which Kashmir frescoes of a thousand years ago have been preserved: in Alchi and in Tabo, and both of them are unique, and are protected by the UNESCO Monuments Fund.
The Buddhist complex of Alchi includes huge Buddha statues, temples decorated with wood carvings of incredible beauty.
Alchi is beautiful, here we will meet completely with another Buddhism - Kashmir Buddhism, which existed more than 1,000 years ago.
By the way, from two monastic complexes - Alchi and Tabo, it is Alchi that is more accessible.

In the complex Alchi three main sanctuaries:
1. Dukkhang or the Assembly Hall
is in the center of the monastery, it is in it that rituals and ceremonies are made.
The Assembly Hall is large and ancient, ancient wooden doors have been preserved. Many details remained unchanged from the 12th to the 13th century. The column hall leads to the courtyard, in the fresco pass with 1000 buddhas.
The oldest in Ladakh Bhavachakra (Wheel of Samsara or the Wheel of Life) and Mahakala are depicted on the outer gates.

Wheel of Sansara (Wheel of Life) in the Buddhist monastery of Alchi. Budget tour Ladakh and Nubra, July 21 - 30, 2018.

The walls of Dukkhang, dedicated to the Buddha (Tathagata), depict the six mandalas surrounding Vairochana, Dukhan is dedicated to him.
Among the mandalas are depicted buddhas, bodhisattvas, goddesses, angry deities and defenders of the Dharma, as well as younger deities.

2. Sumces (or Sumtseg): Alchi-Sumets - one of the most interesting structures of the complex.
Sumets / Sumtseg literally means "three-story" and consists of three small halls built of clay and natural stone in the traditional Tibetan style, while lush columns, facades, walls, frescoes of the interior are made by Kashmiri masters.
On the first floor there are three niches, each 4 meters high.
In the niches are the huge figures of the three Bodhisattvas: Matreya, Avalokitesvara and Manjushri, and around them are the younger deities (four in each niche) and two flying goddesses in each niche.
Sutzec was built in the early 13th century and perfectly preserved to our times.
Ancient inscriptions indicate that these images store relics of the speech and mind of the three bodies of the Buddha: Maitreya personifies the body of reality, Avalokiteshvara is the body of bliss and Manjushri is the body of emanation.
If to simplify, then this is Compassion, Hope and Wisdom.

3. Manjushri Temple: Manjushri Temple, is built around four images of Manjushri, back to back, standing on a platform in the middle of the temple.
Image Manjushri several times redone, including recently painted.
The sculpture of Manjushri is very unconventional, because Manjushri is not painted in the usual orange color, but in different colors.
It is surrounded by gods, animals and a complex ornament consisting of the tails of the monster Makara, which adds mystics.

Near it it's completely different:

Lake Tso-Kar - perhaps the most charming of the lakes of Lesser Tibet.
The epithet "beautiful" - here not absolutely that, Tso-Car is especially charming: soft paints, half-tones, closed miniature, water color of paints surrounding mountains of a lake, calmness-rest.
The word "Tso-Car" literally translates as the White Lake. This lake is named because the salt and all its banks are covered with whitish deposits of salt.
Lake Tso Kar - is located 150 km southeast of Lech in the Rupshu Valley at an altitude of 4700 m.
Tso Kar is very capricious and very diverse in all its manifestations:
from the weather, which can change here every half hour to landscapes - here and the smooth water with reflecting mirrors, and colorful solonchaks, and winding channels of the channel connecting the different parts of the lake.
