LEH – SABOO VILLAGE
The life in Ladakh is mainly characterised by spirituality because from the beginning it is being faithful to its ancestral customs and traditions or in other words we can say that the way of life in Ladakh is simple, as modernity has not touched Leh town. Saboo Monastery is located at a distance of eight kilometers east of Leh. Its altitude is 3450m. Saboo Gompa in Leh is located at a relatively large village that is made up of different hamlet or locality, Saboo, Meyak, Yoknos and Ayu. Each of these hamlets has it’s own deities, associated with the most sacred spots. Though Saboo Leh is a model village but as most villages in Ladakh is still an agrarian society.

Please note that this is an outdoor and adventure trip and to enjoy such trips, one requires being reasonably fit both physically and mentally, along with a previous experience of outdoors. On the other side the trips are carried out in some of the most amazing and extraordinary locations and in very special times such as winter and at the same time they do provide a bit of challenge to our endurance, fitness and our ability to cope with some adverse conditions. Though we will provide the best equipment and manpower, and do our best to leave no stone unturned. But still before taking up this trip we want to make very clear that nothing is certain in trips like this. Such as bad weather and cold and other logistical uncertainties such as power cut and water supply cut etc. Though we will try to do our best to provide water by buckets and lights by solar batteries etc. but still before signing up one should be experienced enough to carry himself or herself in outdoor conditions and well aware of these uncertainties and hence cooperate if any such situation arises due to the reasons beyond human control.
