Heading to the highest peaks we will arrive at LEH, capital of the LADAKH region. Known as LITTLE TIBET, this region straddles the border between India and Tibet proper.

More about our route
August 18 -McLeodGanj
Today we will have a good walk in the mountains surrounding Mcleodganj. A one-hour climb through a dense cedar forest will bring us to the Shiva temple of Galu Devi. From Galu Devi we can already see the Dhauladar mountain range with some ease. After the stop we will walk another hour to the village of Naddi, with spectacular views.
August 19th.- Dharamshala – Manali
Today a long road trip to Manali awaits us. We will visit Shivaite villages and temples along the way.
August 20.- Manali
Today after breakfast we will go to the small Vashisht, a small town near Manali from where we can make a very pleasant walk through the nearby mountains if the weather allows it. In the town itself there are some hot springs that are known throughout the area for being medicinal; its sulphurous water is used to treat muscle and joint pain. There are 2 separate pools for men and women and we recommend you try them after doing the walk. After eating we will move to the Hadimba temple. After the visit, rest of the afternoon at leisure in Old Manali. Hotel.
August 21.- Manali – Jispa
Today we will have to go north. We will leave the green exuberance of the Manali valley and begin our first day of trekking towards the heart of Ladakh. After 92 km of route we will arrive at the Rohtang pass, at 3,980m. From this port we will enjoy very good views of the Pir Panjal mountain range. After the port, the green landscape of Manali will remain for the memory, as an arid world of bushes, rock and snow begins. We will descend towards Tandi and then pass through Keylong, the district capital of Lahaul and Spiti. After 7 hours and 145km of route from Manali we will finally arrive at Jispa. Basic hotel.
August 22.- Jispa – Leh
Today we have to prepare ourselves to cover the longest stretch of the road trip. It will be worth it because we will finally enter the lunar landscape of Ladakh. A route of at least 11 hours (328km) that more than compensates because we will finally arrive in Leh, the capital of Ladakh. We will have a very early breakfast (about 5:30am) to leave Jispa at dawn. We recommend bringing plenty of water and aspirin on the way, as we will reach high points and this day will serve as acclimatization for Ladakh.
We will arrive at the port of Barachal-la at 4892m, leaving the Himalayan barrier and fully entering the lunar valleys of Ladakh. The border between the state of Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh is at Sarchu, where we will have to show our passports at the control. From here begins a route along one of the highest roads in the world. First we will cross the port of Lachulung-la at 5063m, after this we will cross the second highest road passable port in the world, the Tangla-la, at 5360m. In this area the road is in very poor condition and we will go very slowly until we cross the pass. A few kilometers from the Tangla-La pass the road begins to be in good condition directly to the capital of Ladakh. After a long day we will arrive in Leh, this will be our last full day on the road. Hotel.

A necessary gift that we should allow ourselves more often, since it is through interaction with others that we learn the most about ourselves. It allows you to get out of the routine, sometimes suffocating and monotonous. For me it was a journey inside, to observe and recognize my "here and now" and thus continue my path with more clarity and strength. It was a meeting from naturalness, sharing in a group approach to life, experiences and experiences-learning; without fear of vulnerability. To repeat, without a doubt.
Todo un lujo, poder disfrutar de unas clases de yoga en la Sierra Oeste.
Dónde el cuidado del detalle, sensibilidad, y personalización de la práctica de yoga, toma protagonismo.
Donde la mirada, se dirige a nuestro interior.
Me encantó el curso de Respiración Pranayama y apertura del corazón en Madrid, Pablo, un gran profesional que te acompaña con su naturalidad hacia la conexión con la Consciencia del ser. Muchas gracias Pablo!!
I’m in Barcelona for 2 months and I have had the priviliege to have some private classes with Pablo (some others were not but still the same attention). How lucky am. I felt like I improved a lot and I already miss this even if I know I will get back to his classes, such an addiction. Muchas gracias!
Una visión detallista y profunda del yoga, mas allá de la concepción física. Pablo es el perfecto guía en el camino del descubrimiento de uno mismo, empuja tus limites, acabas descubriendo que eres capaz de llegar donde no creias, efecto que traspasa la frontera de la práctica a la vida cotidiana. Gracias maestro!!
Me llevo al sur a gente muy especial en el corazón. Llegué sin absolutamente ninguna expectativa y ha sido mejor de lo que había podido llegar a proyectar.
Maravillosa experiencia la de asistir a las clases de yoga con Pablo. El profesor excelente, el ambiente inmejorable. Un espacio mágico para recuperar cuerpo y espíritu de las tensiones de la vida. Muy, muy recomendable
