These 11 days have brought more meaning to my life than any other days of my life. After this trip one thing is for sure, I am doing all my trips with TLOW the TLOW way. When I look back with all my trips I have done in this 27 years, it never made sense why I used to fly to places and see places like all do. With TLOW I have gone to places and instantly connected with people and seen things that make places beautiful. With the Ladakh blueprint being long, I have made good friends, shared experiences of a lifetime and enjoyed to the fullest. The bus rides, the friends, entire place, food, accommodation has been top notch. Places like Turtuk has been one of the highlights of my trips. Anyone reading this please visit Turtuk and gaze at the night sky. The village is very different from all the villages that I have seen . The village is kilometres away from Pakistan, shows hot the people have lost their near and dear ones during the war but are still happy with life at the border. The monasteries in Leh are worth a watch. The history of buddhism, the monks and the architecture will remain in my memory forever. Message to all Travellers ; The Experience you all will have with TLOW is worth every penny. You will make great friends, see great places and experience a different kind of travel. Reply Anil Sonawane August 23, 2015 Hi TLOW, When is the next trip schedule? Can you please share the details as I want to join you guys when ever its planed.

And you guys made my dream come true. Started the trip with a lot of apprehension but turned out to be a lovely experience. Looking forward to Hampi in October 2015. Reply Pradnya Deshpande August 7, 2015 It was an amazing trip. TLOW is a very cool organisation. You guys give the travellers the freedom to enjoy their vacation and make plans and don’t pile on your own wishes. The entire trip from planning the whole thing, thinking on your feet, the road journeys and the fellow travellers were very nice on this trip. Great experience, mind blowing, would love to travel with TLOW again. Thanks a lot for all the memories :-). Reply Siddharth August 7, 2015 Great trip, wonderful experience. TLOW you guys are doing a wonderful job. Quick change of plans when things didn’t go as planned shows how good organisers you’ll are. Turtuk and rafting was awesome. Our fellow travellers were awesome. Made great friends. Reply Nikita P August 7, 2015 This trip started with a lot of apprehension due to heavy snow fall, road blocks, no state buses operating etc. But we had team TLOW and they are great organisers. Even when there were sudden change of plans they managed everything to perfection. We as a whole are extremely grateful to them for taking us to Turtuk. That was truly the highlight of the trip. This was my first back packing trip and I am so grateful that I did it with TLOW. I am taking back loads of memories. I hope to come on many more trips with you guys. Reply Meghna August 7, 2015 Ladakh has always been on my bucket list and when we found out about this brilliant trip about TLOW we did not have to think twice. And the trip has been just as brilliant as we hoped it to be. Right from the special brownies at Manali to the sleepy yet beautiful ride to Leh. The highlight of the trip has to be the nightstay at Turtuk. Haven’t seen anything as beautiful as that in my life. What was commendable was the rapport that TLOW had with everyone, the co travellers were highly entertaining and added so much more to the trip. Real fun, loved the rafting idea, definitely plan to do more trips with TLOW. Reply Sagar Shetty August 7, 2015 First day it started with hash brownies which totally killed it and started the trip for us. The second day was left with the hangover and the long journey into Ladakh and ofcourse medications. Reaching Ladakh was simply awesome and a dream come true for our whole gang. The home stay in Leh was simply mind blowing and the breakfast served gave us a real homely feel. It was a good suggestion by the team from TLOW to stop taking medication and that really helped us from then on. Pangong lake was something that we were really looking forward to and something that lived up to the hype. The road trip to Turtuk was something out of the world only because of Kareem Bhai’s hospitality. I learnt a lot from his attitude. With a sad good bye to Turtuk we left the village and went to Hunder for archery and camel ride. On the last day we finally got to experience river rafting which was something words can’t describe. This was easily the best trip I’ve ever had in my life. Reply Vedant Petwal August 5, 2015 It sounds like a good trip. One question that I want to ask you is, what was the mode of transportation you used to travel around Pangok lake and Nubra valley ? I am doing a solo trip to Ladakh this August end but have no idea of the transportation. Mail me if you can help.
