An Unplugged Life and India Someday review.
In the mighty Himalayan mountains of northern India, lies the kingdom of Ladakh, which also recently gained the status of an independent Union Territory in India. Famous for the sweeping views of snow-capped mountains, a rugged terrain worthy of an adventure, and an abundance of untouched natural beauty, a journey through Ladakh is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience! And a journey of this nature needs the right travel partners to allow you to fully immerse into the beauty of Ladakh. India Someday and Unplugged Life are two such companies that are together making it a breeze to travel to this remote part of India.
Independent travel comes with its advantages which we love, but when it’s Ladakh you want to explore, we highly recommend you team up with a suitable operator to iron out all the details for you. While India Someday is the primary itinerary planner and the ones who you’ll probably interact with when planning the trip, the latter takes care of everything on the ground in Ladakh. Here are just some of the reasons why we loved traveling with India Someday & Unplugged Life.
Impeccable itinerary planning
What’s the most essential criterion when choosing a travel partner? Planning the itinerary, of course! Imagine going on a trip with an ill-planned itinerary. Probably not the best way to go on holiday. No matter how beautiful the place is, you need a solid itinerary to be able to make the most of the experience.
India Someday and Unplugged Life have mastered the art of planning itineraries to suit the needs of different kinds of travelers. Whether you’re someone who enjoys the kick of adrenaline or someone who prefers a more laidback holiday, these guys seamlessly curate and personalize every itinerary to ensure the best possible experience.
Helpful and approachable team
When it comes to travel planning with a third party, half the battle is won if the people you’re dealing with can understand what you need and are able to translate that into a wholesome travel experience.
But this is entirely dependent on the team putting it all together for you. The people at India Someday and Unplugged Life are not only great at what they do but are also genuinely helpful. Extremely understanding and accommodative of everyone’s needs, it’s almost a relief traveling with them because you know that all aspects of your travel have already been taken care of.
And if you need more assistance, it’s reassuring to know that help is always just a phone call or text message away.
Unmatched travel experience on the ground
Planning itineraries is one thing, and execution another! Unplugged Life and India Someday leave no stone unturned to make sure the actual travel experience lives up to the great itineraries they create. From picking the best possible accommodation in the stipulated budget to handling the logistics and transportation seamlessly for a comfortable journey, they make travel in a completely new destination feel like a breeze!

Perfect partner in exploring difficult terrain of Ladakh
Ladakh, with a minimum elevation of 10,000 feet above sea level, makes for an enjoyable but slightly tricky destination. The increased chances of travelers experiencing high altitude or mountain sickness mean that the itinerary needs to accommodate ample time for rest and acclimatization. Moreover, emergency medical aid like oxygen tanks and medicines need to be near at hand for those who are unable to acclimatize naturally.
Not surprisingly, Unplugged Life and India Someday teams are extremely well prepared and ready to deal with all kinds of unforeseen events. Taking the travel experience a notch higher is the availability of privately rented vehicles to drive travelers all over Ladakh.
This is important since there is no public transportation in this region, making it all the more important to choose the right tour operator for your trip.
Sustainable and environment-conscious approach
Ladakh’s fragile and exceptionally beautiful ecosystem demands that we adopt sustainable and eco-friendly travel to protect and preserve it. As travelers also become more environment-conscious, it’s a pleasure seeing travel companies like India Someday and Unplugged Life ensure that destinations like Ladakh remain unharmed from tourism activities.
Making use of local resources, employing local people and being thoughtful and cautious about non-biodegradable waste disposal of plastic water bottles, food packets, etc. (Ladakh does not have its own waste management system), are just some of the ways Unplugged Life sets itself apart from other tour operators in the region.
If you are planning your first or even your fifth trip to India, especially to a destination like Ladakh, hit up the teams at India Someday and Unplugged Life and let them take you on a journey of a lifetime. We promise you’ll not want to leave!
