At an average altitude of 14,600 meters above sea level, the Changthang plateau is one of the least populated areas of the world. The vast is home to the Changpa nomads who live all year through in these harsh conditions. Near the lakes are grasslands which bloom in summers. The nomads migrate from their villages to these pastures with their livestock of Yaks, Sheep and Pashmina goats.
Mahé is one such nomadic village of Ladakh which offers an enriching experience of nomadic lifestyle. The village was solar electrified by our partner's initiative in Oct 2016 and it’s a unique village held mostly by women. These women majorly do labor work but they also know Carpet weaving which is common in Changthang. Off late the weaving is not being practiced a lot due to lack of market. The community face lot of other issues as well owing to climate change and cultural loss due to rampant urban migration.
Through homestay based tourism in Mahé we are engaging tourists to experience the nomadic culture, aiming alongside to improve the lives of this community. The region has breathtaking views, some unexplored lakes and endemic wildlife.
"I had a wonderful time at Ladakh.
I cannot imagine a more beautiful place than Urbis. The trek was through valley of flowers and the homestay there was with such a lovely, warm hearted family. They took good care of every little detail and treated me like family :) Hospitality at it's best!
Travel to Pangong Tso was an experience not describable in words. The homestay was right next to the lake which was good.
Last but not the least, enjoyed local food experience. I am definitely going there again. Thanks a lot for helping me plan this much needed break."
~ Preeti Jain, travelled to Ladakh in July 2017
"It was a wonderful trip. Made lot of new friends. Guide and driver was excellent. Home stay was good too. Speechless about the beauty of the place.I can't think of anything that can improve except some more
orientation on compost toilet would help. Or may be alternate toilet arrangements.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip. "
~ Chandrashila, travelled solo on our Kinnaur and Spiti Safari in August 2016
"The holiday in Spiti was one of the best, as it was firstly offbeat and it also gave me a good insight on the lives of the locals. Responsible travel and carbon neutrality is what attracted me to this kind
of a holiday. The arrangements were very well done and our guides and drivers ensured we were taken care of. It was great to meet Ishita at Kaza and understand the good work she and her team are doing in Spiti.
Loved the hospitality and warmth of our hosts at our homestays / guest houses and the people of Spiti overall. My favourite memories are Tabo, Komic and Langza. We should have a homestay at Langza instead of
Demul. Langza's beauty was just too much for words. Would like to travel like this to other places as well in the future :)
Thanks for all the arrangements and coordination. "
~ Malita Crasto, travelled on Kinnaur and Spiti Safari trip in June 2015.
"I’m still relishing the memories of Spiti and the wonderful people I met on this trip. The Kinnaur & Spiti jeep safari had been the best of the journeys I have undertaken till yet. I never expected the trip, especially the hotels & homestays to be as good as they were. The rooms in all the hotels were very neat and clean, especially bathrooms, and all of them had amazing views. The best was in Kalpa and Dhankar. The homestays in Demul & Komic too were beautiful. It was wonderful to put up with the locals of some of the remotest villages in Asia and experience their routine life. Chhering (our guide ) was par excellence. He was genuinely concerned about everyone on the trip and looked after each one of us personally. Everyone enjoyed his company and all the stories he told us about Spiti and its people. Driving in this part of Asia is one of the toughest things to do but Gatuk (our driver) was simply superb at it. A highly recommended journey for anyone who wants to try something different."

"I absolutely loved the Spiti trip! I had wonderful experiences meeting new people, exploring quaint villages and discovering the wonders of this beautiful country. I really enjoyed the homestays and eating local Spiti food. I also liked the fact that it was a small group, if it had been much larger we would have had a harder time moving about and fitting in the jeep."
"Spiti is truly amazing, interacting with the people out there, made me realize that it is so easy for one to be happy! I would like to congratulate India Untravelled, for getting together such a wonderful mix of people. I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with each one of them, their curiosity about the world, was something that I shall take away with me. :) Our guide Tsering was also wonderful, his knowledge about the Buddhist monasteries was extremely helpful!"
"I had never heard of "Spiti" till I came across a beautiful snap on your website and from that moment on, I had decided that I am going there! The location was amazing -- what blew me off is the onward and return journey (esp the return journey) -- it was so funny, I was sleepy but was keeping my eyes open so that I dont miss on a single amazing view! I especially loved the Kunzum pass :) The homestays were both really nice! It was the first of a kind experience for me and was a good experience -- we even learnt how to make Momos. The Post office experience was lovely! The thrill of posting from the highest post office, the lovely stamps, the hospitable postman – they even served us tea. The post cards haven’t reached though. Not yet. Overall -- I must say a lovely trip. The hotels selected, the locations, the guide. Looking forward to travelling with India Untravelled again :)"
