A decade ago Nawang Lhundup incorporated Moonlight Travels and ever since, we have been organising adventure and leisure holidays in the Ladakh and Zanskar regions. Based in Leh the laid back capital of Ladakh, we specialize in leisure and adventure tours and have been offering the discerning traveler and trekker, excellent services for over two decades. Comprising a team of tour and adventure activity professionals, our objective has always been to offer well organized and hassle free holidays and treks to all our guests.
Our well researched and time tested trek itineraries have been appreciated by many of our world wide clients who have often returned to explore more of our eco friendly tours. In 1995 we secured for the first time a permit for a small film crew to enter the Restricted Area of Nubra. They came back bubbling over with enthusiasm for a truly beautiful and undiscovered part of the Himalaya. In the late 90s we had groups who completed the trek and again came back with fabulous reports of the place and the people.
Always concerned about the ecology of the area, and understanding the need for eco tourism in Ladakh, we at Moonlight Travels have often undertaken cleaning drives on trekking trails. In 2004, we organised a massive clean up programme around the Tso Moriri and Tsokar lake shores. We did this with the cooperation of ALTOA (All Ladakh Tour Operators Association). In 2005 we got together 24 members of the local travel operators association and 9 overseas visitors and again went on a cleaning drive around some of the more popular trekking trails. We seriously intend to continue this so that all our trekkers enjoy their treks without coming across garbage and other unwanted paraphernalia on our trails. We know that the Changthang wetlands and grass pastures need protection as the Changpa nomads depend entirely on the precious grass that grows on this extensive plateau.
