STARGAZING AND CAMPFIRE

In Ladakh, the sky is so clear that the milky way is visible with the naked eye. Our campsite, away from the city and its lights, is the ideal place to watch for shooting stars, space stations and the planets. 

Enjoy the warmth of a campfire under the stars,  before checking out the moon's craters up close through the camp telescope.
