Lingshed Area Project

Location: Ladakh, India
Duration: 21 days
Cost: $1120
Time: June-September

Ladakh, or "Little Tibet" as it is known, is a wildly beautiful desert region high in the Western Himalayas. It is a place of few resources and an extreme climate, yet it has been home to a thriving culture for more than a thousand years.

Experience a cross-cultural journey through the High Himalayan Mountains to the isolated Ladakhi village of Lingshed where you will live and work with the local monks and the Ladakhi people.

What You Can Expect

As a guest of the charismatic Ladakhi monk, Geshe Ngawang Jangchup, you have been invited to live and work with the people of Lingshed. Geshe has developed the Lingshed Area Project (LAP) which is working to support the people of the Zanskar region through education, local doctors programs, sustainable living, and preservation of culture. 

Your task will be to trek in and out of Lingshed through the high Himalayan Mountains with your local guide and translator from LAP and photograph and interview local community members for the creation of the LAP website.  After your visit to Ladakh there will be extra days for visiting  Delhi, Leh the capitol city of Ladakh and the Taj Mahal in Agra where you will live with a local family of marble workers who are the ancestors of the original Taj Mahal builders.
