Altitude Adventure was previously known as Plan Himalayas and I used to arrange treks, tours, expeditions, motorcycle and bicycle rides for outside travel companies, whether big or small, for the last 10 years. For the last 2 years, Altitude Adventure was born out of Plan Himalayas in order build its own brand and not play the second fiddle, though some private group trips are still done in other travel operators name that are located outside of Ladakh and Zanskar.
