We specialize in climbing, trekking and rafting and will tailor adventures and experiences around your interests, be they fauna and flora, religion and spirituality, environmental conservation, physical challenge or culture.

Wild East Adventure exists to provide safe and eco friendly adventures in the Himalayas. This is not just a slogan for us but a principle that guides our work. We are doing our best to leave nothing but our footprints in the fragile environment that is the Himalayas. We educate our staff and inform our clients about their responsibilities before going trekking. Every year we organize clean up treks at our own expense on the major trekking routes.

This is to preserve the natural environment and to make sure that the local community and future visitors are able to enjoy a clean and healthy Ladakh.
Wild East Adventure is particularly aware of preserving Ladakh’s fragile environment and cultural heritage and put great effort into minimising the impact of trekking.
Besides respect for the natural and cultural environment, Wild East Adventure is committed to sustainable development. We are committed to long term relationships with our local suppliers, and our staff is fairly paid and also insured through the company. Through homestays we try to bring more of the profits of tourism to the villages. We can offer an unique trek through the Markha valley and into Kharnak involving homestays in Markha valley and at the nomadscamp in Kharnak. We believe that tourism based on principles of sustainability and equity can be used to improve the livelihood of local communities. Our aim is to live up to this.
