Ju-Leh Adventure is a local trekking and travel agency based in Leh, Ladakh. We specialise in personalised itineraries and custom-made tours in Ladakh and Zanskar. We are committed to responsible and sustainable tourism which benefits the local communities.
Custom treks & tours
Our custom treks & tours allow you the freedom and flexibility to design an itinerary that suits perfectly your own special interests, preferences and timing. The benefit of custom-made travel is that we use our skills and experience to suit your every need and we offer suggestions, recommendations and solutions.
We organize custom treks & tours for groups of minimum 2 or 3 persons. Please contact us as early as possible because all our guides and drivers are usually hired many weeks or months in advance.
Fixed departure treks - join a group
Our fixed departure treks are ideal for single travellers or small groups who are interested in being part of a larger group. Fixed departure treks are a great way to meet trekkers from various countries while discovering the beauty of Ladakh together. It is also a way to save money, especially for single travellers.

Ecotourism and sustainable tourism
Tourism is a major industry in Ladakh but its growth has had a range of impact on society as well as on environment. We, at Ju-Leh Adventure, strive to reduce impacts on the environment and focus on ensuring economic benefits to local communities.
We encourage the tourists to stay in homestays during their trek. This is an effort to stem the region's rural-urban migration and generate income to the rural communities in Ladakh. Since all the households have their own homestay, it ensures that money is equally distributed between the families. So, you could discover the ways of life of the villagers, share meals with the families and learn a few words in Ladakhi.
Ju-Leh Adventure uses a part of its profit to provide sponsorship to Ladakhi students for their education. The students we sponsor are studying in the Druk White Lotus School (www.dwls.org) and other schools in Leh.
We believe that our staff (guides, porters, horsemen) is our biggest asset. We take care of our staff and we pay well. The people in our crew are crucial to your enriching experience on the mountains and an important part of our success. So, instead of offering discounts, we offer satisfaction to customers and workers and make it a memorable journey for both.
We are involved in environmental actions like planting trees and cleanliness campaigns. We go with our staff and horses to the main trekking routes to collect rubbish left by others at the end of every trekking season. We also encourage our customers to reduce waste while travelling.
