Event description

Description

One of the world’s most spiritual destinations, Ladakh is a place that holds a very special place in Global Family Travels' heart. Set high in the Himalayas, on the western edge of the Tibetan plateau, beautiful Ladakh is known for its snow-peak glaciers and crystalline lakes as well as Buddhist monasteries and stupas. The region was once an independent Buddhist kingdom at the crossroads of the Silk Road. Today it’s still often called "Little Tibet," and remains one of the last places in the world where the Buddhist way of life is lived unrepressed.

Join Global Family Travels' Founder and CEO, Jennifer Spatz and Seattle-area school teacher, Ben Wheeler, Trip Leader of our Summer 2019 Ladakh Trip, as they share their expertise and vibrant images of the region, review trip itineraries to Ladakh, along with practical advice on what you need to know to prepare for a trip to this amazing destination! Note, travel talk will be from 4 - 5:30 and from 5:30-6 pm, Tina Templman will share information about the 8-Limbs of Yoga and for those who wish to stay, lead us in some gentle yoga stretches.

In 2019, Global Family Travels will be offering several trips to Ladakh, including:

Our trips offer the opportunity to immerse in, and learn from, the Ladakhi communal culture and the Buddhist traditions of this stunning region, as well as to participate in a community service project with students from the Siddhartha School Project.

Jennifer will review these trip itineraries, which can also be downloaded from: https://www.globalfamilytravels.com/india
