Changpa Travels is proud to announce the opening of the world’s highest zipline adventure in Ladakh. The inauguration was attended by LEH: CEC, LAHDC Leh, Gyal P Wangyal, and President of All Ladakh Tour Operators Association – Angchuk. Sitting at 3500 metres above sea level and 650 metres return length makes this travel line a must for every adventure enthusiast. The maiden zipline adventure runs from Manali – Leh highway traveling over the Indus River. Opening day saw founding-director of the Students’ Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladak – Sonam Wangchuk attend the event and we were proud and honoured to have him as our first guest to take on the zipline experience.
Staying in line with Changpa Travels’ philosophy for sustainable adventures and eco-friendly travel, it was a no brainer to take on the challenge and include this activity as one of the thrilling experiences we offer. Aside from a fun, adrenaline-pumping activity, ziplining is a quick and energy-efficient form of traveling between two points. One of the key factors is the little to zero-emission of toxins to the environment as well as the speed of crossing over rivers and climbing down mountainous regions. This form of travel has been around for millennia, dating back to 2000 years where countries like China, India, and Japan used this as a form of transportation. Today we see several tour operators across the globe provide this as a fun adventure that can be enjoyed by people with a knack for an adrenaline rush.
Changpa Travels is a licenced tour operator that arranges spiritual journeys and environmentally favourable adventures in the Himalayan regions. Our experienced staff are licenced and internationally recognized to offer tour services, river rafting experiences, and ziplining adventures. We look forward to welcoming you to Ladakh and take you on a conscious travel journey.
