A family adventure in Ladakh can never start too early

It’s never too early to learn mountaineering.

Just ask 7-year-old Jordan and five other children from the Ray and Strickland families, aged between 10 and 15 years, who spent two weeks this past summer on a memorable family adventure in Ladakh with us.

The highlights of the trip included trekking to remote villages, visiting ancient temples, doing glacier walks and the ascent of a 5,800 metre peak. The children were young, but their enthusiasm was infectious and it helped that they had each other to have fun with.

Rimo Expeditions customized the trip to fit the interests and especially the abilities of the young children who had the time of their life meeting children their age, experiencing village life, riding ponies and generally doing what kids do best, having fun.

Here are some pictures from the Ian Ray’s facebook page that gives you sense of their excellent adventures:
