We Eco...

Eco trip planner is the INDIA first site covering green tourism and beauty of INDIA, and has been in origin from last half a decade. Our main intention is to inspire travelers toward a adventures and culture form of travel. That includes slowing down, unplugging, getting out, going in, making mistakes and moving on, being choosy, doing research, and growing every day. Rest and relaxation are real and important, and so is time with friends and family.

Our Belief...

We come from the Earth, and we all return to it. Let’s make our time here as rewarding and amazing as it can be, without using all our grandchildren’s clean water and topsoil in the process. They’re going to need those things too. Being an Eco traveller means doing what you can, in your life, to keep all life on Earth healthy and green. With smarter choices, innovations, community action and plenty of love, we can figure it out, do the right thing and have a great time too.

Alchi is Ladakh's most beautiful monastery. Over a century old, its wall paintings are very similar to those of the Tabo gompa in Spiti. These paintings propound the Ajanta style of painting. Unlike other monasteries, which are usually located on a cliff top or cling to a mountainside, Alchi is at ground level and is nestled in the shade of a garden. Likir gompa situated atop a windy cliff top overlooks the beautiful village of Likir. It was founded in the 12th Century although the present construction dates back to the 18th century as the original one was destroyed by fire. In its courtyard is a yellow-coloured 3 storey high mammoth statue of the Lord Buddha, which was constructed by a resident monk. The top floor houses an impressive museum containing old thangkas and weapons used many centuries back. Drive on to Leh and reach in the evening. Overnight at hotel.
