Mountain Homestays - Sojourn with Local Copper Artisans of Ladakh
Artisans of Ladakh are experts of making copper artifacts for hundreds of years. Sadly, this art is fading away and is now left limited to a few remote pockets in Ladakh. Through this tour, we want to revive this dying art and also help in improving the livelihood of the villagers. We will take you to the last remaining four Himalayan villages where this art is still practiced. Try this art with your own hands as the artisans teach you this skill. Take back a memorable souvenir for yourself.
