AndBeyond targets Indian Himalayas in latest group journey

The Himalayan brown bear, Eurasian lynx and black-necked crane are just some of the species travellers can expect to spot on andBeyond’s latest small group tour.

The luxury tour operator, known for its African safaris, has chosen the remote and lesser-known mountainous region of Ladakh in India as the destination for its new Trans-Himalayan Wildlife Journey.

Guests on the 14-day trip, privately guided by naturalist Surya Ramachandran, will track the Himalayan brown bear - Indian’s largest predator - as well as Himalayan wolves, ibex, argali wild sheep and golden eagle.

Travellers to the high-altitude desert, known as Little Tibet and located in the north Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, will also visit the lakes of Tsokar and Tso Morir, local villages and Buddhist monasteries.

The tour includes one night in Delhi; two nights in Ladakh's largest town, Leh; nine nights in the Indian Himalayas; and a final night in Leh. 

The next departure is scheduled for July 10 - 23 costing from $5,885 per person for the 14-day itinerary.

AndBeyond currently operates personalised tours in 15 countries in Africa, five in Asia and four in South America.
