LADAKH FACTS

LADAKH is located in the  state of Jammu and Kashmir in the northern most part of India. The place was cut off or little explored beyond the himalayas for a larger part of its  history.   Strategically located in the Indo-Tibetan border, it was closed to outsiders for thirty years even after the Independence of India in the year 1947. It has thus managed to remain vastly untouched by the grim repercussions of modernization and retain its distinct culture and lifestyle in the canvas of cultures of the Indian subcontinent.

When Ladakh partly opened up to the outside world in 1974, it soon became a Dream Destination for the explorer, for the adventure lover, for the Buddhist pilgrim and for the lover of nature.

Known as the ‘Little Tibet’, ‘The Last Shangri-La’, ‘The Rooftop of the World’ ,  Ladakh has its own culture and identity of which Tibetan tradition is only one aspect of it and has never ceased to enchant travelers all over the world.

LADAKH DIARIES

This is my very humble attempt to put into words the enchanting beauty and aura of Ladakh – the little known gem nestled amidst the lofty himalayan peaks in the northern most part of  our country. For words  and books are not enough to describe what it IS Ladakh. ..what it is to BE in Ladakh… It is one of those places that needs to be Experienced to be understood and surprisingly the more you discover it, the more you rediscover yourself..

So join me in this journey as I discover this amazing world and relive some of my everlasting memories of it..

About Us

Take a Break Tours is not just a Travel company but a dream to share the joy of travelling, to appreciate the beauty of faraway places and to experience the vibrancy of different cultures with our friends around the world.

The world we live in is a beautiful place and there is just one uncertain life to explore it.  But we have become so caught up in the rat race that we have forgotten what it is to enjoy the sunset behind the office window, to stop by to smell the flowers on our way to work, to feel the first drops of rain – in other words, we have forgotten what it is to experience life.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away!”

So, Why not forget the never-ending deadlines, why not switch off the ringing mobile phones, and ‘Take a Break’ from the treadmill of life to actually Feel Alive?? This is the idea behind the name of our company.
