DETAILED ITINERARY

Initial meetup :

On reaching Leh airport youneed to meet Mischief Treks team a specified hotel which is approx 10 min away from the airport . You may choose to reach earlier for sightseeing and shopping the additional stay will be charges extra. Accommodation in Leh will be arranged by us for one day prior to trek and one day after the trek. Next day you will be taken via bus to trek starting point and the trek will commence as mentioned in itinerary. After Trek completion you will be transported back to the hotel and next day you may choose to move back to your respective city.

Your body needs to acclimatize before you start trekking, hence you need to reach Leh 2 days before the trek start and give yourself time to adjust to the weather. During these two days we visit monasteries, temples, Khardung La, Hall of Fame, and other tourist locations in and around Leh. These visits are optional and are done at your own expense. As a big group it’s very cost effective to move around together.
