About Us

Altitude Adventure has been one of the leading adventure tour operators in Ladakh for 17 years. Established by Abdul Qayoom, an experienced mountaineer and adventurer from Nubra valley, we are eager to serve adventurers in our part of the mighty Himalayas.  Altitude Adventure provides customers with professional guiding on some of the world's highest mountains, incredible trekking services around beautiful Ladakh, and unmatched quality of service.

Since a very young age, Abdul Qayoom has been one to linger and ponder in the Great Outdoors. After having spent a lifetime Mountaineering and Trekking, freelancing for the Defenses and accomplishing his goals, he single handedly kick started Altitude Adventure over 17 years ago. He is an extremely seasoned Mountaineer and is acclaimed all over Ladakh for the same. He has lead many expeditions all the way to the summit. Abdul Qayoom is professionally highly qualified, and is a master of Zero Impact Alpine Crafts and Search & Rescue techniques.

Altitude Adventure is dedicated to promoting environmentally-friendly tours across the region of Ladakh and Zanskar. Being a Ladakhi, his in-depth understanding of its people and customs of the region help us to formulate tours and treks that are positively sensitive to the area and its people. Thus the traveler can return home enriched by the experiences that go beyond those of the ordinary tourist, which is the reward for our services.

The success of Altitude Adventure lies also in the local staff. The organization’s aim is to employ selected freelancers (kitchen teams, horse whisperers, guides), and local service suppliers so that the travelers can fully enjoy their ladakh experience.
