Summary of Tours:
Join Global Family Travels for a unique family learning experience in India’s Ladakh region and experience some of India’s grandest wonders, such as the Taj Mahal and New Delhi sites, along the way. Once an independent Buddhist kingdom at the crossroads of vital trade routes between China and the Middle East , Ladakh, often called “Little Tibet” or “Land of the Broken Moon,” is one of the last places in the world where the Buddhist way of life is unrepressed. Its unique geographical location in one of the northernmost regions in India makes Ladakh rich with extraordinary trekking trails for all expertise levels (should you be interested in extending your stay with a trek, we can arrange that for you).
Highlights of this tour include the opportunity to contribute meaningfully in the village of Stok by living, working and learning with a host Ladakhi family, and to participate in a village cleanup with the Amale Society, a group of dedicated women from the village of Stok who initiate and implement social, cultural and environmental events. During the home-stay part of our tour, you and your family will become immersed in the Ladakhi communal culture and gain a deep understanding of the Buddhist culture and traditions of this stunning region.
From Mumbai, to Hyderabad to New Delhi, this all-inclusive tour of India will allow you to experience the vibrant sights and sounds of Indian culture. During this two week journey you and your family will visit exciting Bollywood, iconic Taj Mahal and the inspiring Wings School for Girls in Hyderabad. You will be entertained by India’s rich myths and stories of the past and the booming film industry of the present. Your hearts will be warmed by the young students at the Wings School for girls where we will spend two days volunteering our time. All the while you will benefit from the insightful commentary and interpretation of our experienced local guides and rest easy in the knowledge that Global Family Travels is taking care of the details in partnership with Creative Journeys.
