Explore Ladakh - Overland Guide book

12 of the most beautiful off-road routes by motorbike, 4x4 and bike

About the project

The guide book "Explore Ladakh" is an invitation to independently explore the wildest corners of the Himalayas. A region brimming with millenniums of Tibetan Buddhist culture, it is also home to incredible and well preserved natural landscapes. You will cross some of the world's highest mountain passes, taking you from picturesque valleys to vast plateaus. Find yourself inspired to undertake a timeless journey using our carefully selected routes.

Somewhere in between a tourist guide and a road-book, OunTravela's Adventure Guides are a collection of photographs, detailed maps and useful information. An original format which lets you create your own routes and itineraries whilst having a perfect understanding of the terrain. Ideal for setting off on an independent, off the beaten track journey!

This first edition of the book "Explore Ladakh" offers a selection of the 12 most beautiful off-road routes in this region, known as "Little Tibet". All the routes are presented on high resolution satellite images with all the main points of interest : natural, cultural, scenic, camping sites, inns...

In order to help you organize your trip completely autonomously, we give you all the practical information you need to know for its smooth running: permit application, vehicle preparation or rental, health, equipment...

Finally, part of the book is dedicated to the environment. You will find everything you need to know about the fauna, flora and culture of Ladakh in order to better respect this unique environment that deserves our care

What are the funds for?

OunTravela is a publishing house created in 2019 by two young adventurers who have left everything behind to embark on their passion. Why self-publishing? Publishing this first book with you is a way of getting you involved in this new adventure, getting into direct contact with the readers by spoiling you with exclusive titles and having more freedom in producing our books. Your help is essential to continue to grow this project that is so important to us!

This pre-sale will be used to cover part of the printing costs of the book as well as the communication expenses and sending  the item we have offer... 8% will go back to the Ulule platform.

We invite you to visit our website : a collaborative resource centre where you will find many articles on relatively unexplored and wild destinations waiting to be explored as well as practical advice to start your adventures confidently.

"Explore Ladakh" will be available in French and English, with worldwide delivery in February 2020.

About the project owner

OunTravela is a publishing house and resource centre for travellers seeking adventure created in 2019 by Victor and Olivia to share with other enthusiasts their travel philosophy. Nicknamed "The small path philosophy", it is based on exploration, improvisation and the discovery of unknown areas.

As a Business Intelligence Engineer, Victor worked for 3 years as a database consultant in a large aeronautical group. Passionate about data and maps, off-trail travel has become his specialty!

For her part, Olivia has always been a great traveller and a lover of the wilderness. Today a vet, photographer and filmmaker, this new project is both a challenge and a personal achievement that allows her to combine all her passions.

We would like to thank Clermont Fu for his contribution to the project as a photographer and explorer and James Warburg for the translation of this book into English (from French) so even more people can benefit from it !

We would also like to thank our partners in this great adventure!

We look forward to completing this adventure book publishing project with you. It is a real achievement for us to publish this first book. Feel free to share and talk about it with others! Please note that it will not be available for Christmas, delivery is scheduled for february.
