Rigzin: Soul of our Ladakh Trip

It's time of the year when many of you would have started planning for Ladakh Trip. Not to mention we went through the same phase last year. After preparing a draft itinerary and booking flight tickets our subsequent task to finalize the transportation inside Ladakh ?  Ravi digged out a reference of a person by name Rigzin(Regzin). An ex-army man who now makes his living by taking tourist around Ladakh in his Mahindra Scorpio.

By having series of phone discussions with him we converted our draft plan into almost finalized itinerary. And he agreed to take the full responsibility of travel right from pick-up from Leh Airport to drop back to Manali at very reasonable price !

The trip got executed as per our plan without any major hassles ! All credits to soul of the trip - Rigzin. With his experience we covered most the places and many times we were at right place at right time ! And hats off his patience, just imagine how difficult it would to manage a group with 6 photography enthusiasts who usually take 2X time at all the stopovers on a long drive :)

Here's a nice description by Vignesh, one of my tripmates:
RiGZiN - our Scorpio's owner and safe driver for 7 days ! It was a great pleasure to be driven around Ladakh region by him, he helped with the itinerary, arranged the night stays, gave us lots of native info you would usually never get, and also made it in a reasonable good price.


  1. Do you have a contact number for Regzin. Planning to go to Ladakh in December, looking for a reliable driver for about 5 days.
