Overview: Jeep Safari

A jeep safari is a modern-day caravan. These overland journeys often traverse through off-road terrain (read Spiti, Ladakh, Kutch), and are aimed at travellers with a penchant for adventure. The journey is more important than the destination in a jeep safari. And there is no better way to experience high mountain passes, beautiful valleys, stark deserts and lush forests! Most of India’s popular jeep safari trails are in North India, with Manali, Leh, Shimla, Nainital and Corbett being some of the key places that offer fixed departures. Given India's diverse terrain this adventure activity is loaded with possibilities, especially in regions such as the Northeast and Sikkim.An old saying on Ladakh goes as follows: ‘Only a dear friend or an old enemy will find his way to Ladakh.’ With the opening of the Manali-Leh highway, the forbidden charm of Ladakh suddenly became a reality for those seeking new pastures. Given the height of this highway with mountain crossings such as Tanglang Pass, Rohtang Pass, Baralacha Pass among others, jeeps were tailor-made for this fascinating journey. The success of this route, which traverses the fruit basket of Kullu-Manali, the tribal district of Lahaul, and Ladakh, has gradually spawned many more routes.1.

Ideal Conditions for Jeep Safari

 Save the peak of summer and the depth of winter, the rest of the year offers a superb climate for jeep safari - not too warm, not too chilly. But if you're keen on visiting game reserves and wildlife sanctuaries in off-season(and are not tooput off by extreme of weather),take a chance- you might be pleasantly surprised by some sightings. But do check with the parks if they admit visitors during thesemonths.

What Should Wear

 For jeep safaris in Ladakh and Spiti, keep a combination of warm clothing (sweater, jacket, thermals) and cottons. And dress in layers. Days are warm under the high-altitude sun, but temperature dips very fast well before sundown. Also, while crossing high passes, ensure that you are are adequately covered. Remember Khardung La/Pass and other other passes are snow covered through the year.
 For jeep safaris in Garhwal, Kumaon and Himachal (besides Spiti), layered clothing is, once again, recommended. Although, one is unlikely to be exposed to the extreme conditions of Ladakh and Spiti.
