How this company came into Existence.

This company was founded way back in 1970s by my uncle Mr. Gelek. During that time, Ladakh was a place, outside of the existing world unknown to many people all the over the globe. That was the phase of time, when Tour operator used to contact their guest through inland letters which takes about a month to reach Ladakh. That was the time of trust and humanity when one letter used to confirm the whole trip, which is now a sweet parable for our existing society of hospitality. After completing my studies in Delhi, I spent some time in Ladakh and saw how swiftly the tourism business is changing and the things are not same as before. I started working with my uncle and what I learnt is that The Technology has changed the entire system of communication. Though there is lot of communication over internet and phone but the trust –the foundation of very business in not there. So, I started working on goodwill and trust building themes in my business. Our Company work three principle of trust , honesty and goodwill.

Ladakh is a very pristine country with a fragile environment. The change is climatic condition of the world is drastically showing its effect in Ladakh and a local people of Ladakh can give a very good proof of it. Environment is part of every activity; we carry out in our day to day life. Our company ensure every activity which is happening under the banner of our company is eco-friendly. During every trip, we send some bags with our crew to bring back non-biodegradable things to Leh and look for some other solution rather than destroying the beauty of some pristine spot.
