Clean up trek to the apricot valley!

Responsible travels initiative!

We at Active Adventure Ladakh after our successful participation and support for the first ever cycling competition to  the khardong la pass the world highest motorable road, we are now organising a clean-up trek along with the apricot valley with the responsible initiative by our dedicated staffs and some of our clients.
The objective behind organising such trips is to create an opportunity to exchanges ideas between the visitors and the host community/the villagers. As we believe that our local farmers have many stories to share with what they have experienced in the last few decades with many changes …from the cash economy to the climate changes!
So if you have enough time while your stay in Ladakh join this programme and learn from the local people- ofcourse share your experiences from the west or the metropolitans lives!


a) As a Guest – Respect local traditions- protect local cultural- maintain local prides.

b) While taking Photographs- Respect privacy-ask permission and restraint use of flashlight for photography and filming inside National Monuments and smoking and alcohol drinking is strictly prohibited

c) Respect Holy Place- preserve what you have come to see- never touch or remove religious objects- purchase and sale of antiques which is more than 100 years old is against the law and it attracts punishment under rules.

d) Don’t carve your initials the wall of religious places and historical monuments.

e) Keep noise levels down- especially at night or in quiet religious centres.

f) While in Mountains burn or bury all non-degradable litters-don’t expect others to clean up after you.

g) Keep stream water clean and avoid using pollutants such as detergents in stream and springs- if no toilets facilities are available- make sure are at least 30 Meter away from water source and Bury or cover waste.

h) Giving to Children encourages begging a donation to project like Health Centre or School is a more constructive way to help.

i) Visitors who value local traditions encourage local prides and maintain local cultures-please help them to gain a realistic view of life in other parts of the World.

j) The beauty of the place and loving kinds of the people may change you but please do not change them.
