You guys know how much I love joining travel contests right? As a matter of fact I have won quite a few: roundtrip flight tickets to Hong Kong (Cathay Pacific) and another pair to Vietnam (Jetstar Asia). I have been religiously joining the SkyscannerXchange for a trip to Thailand but it is not for me. I still have two more to join so hopefully I get one of them. Just when I thought I would remain a 'loser', came a notification that I won a trip to Ladakh, India.
I just shared this contest announcement giveaway via Facebook and followed them plus on Instagram. I couldn't even remember the guy whom I happened to see that he did the same but it is me who won. That's it, so easy peasy! I plan to do a travel guide to Ladakh, India after this trip so that this is going to be win-win to both of us.
The thing is, flight and visa aren't included. Anyhow. this will surely lessen my expenses. I am so excited to see see a part of India where there is snow!!! It's my dream to see a real snow!!! Who knows this will be the trip I can glance a snow for the first time. Below is the list of prizes.
I am now hunting a buddy who can bike since this is a biking trip but the organizer is happy to rent a car as last option if I am able to get one who can't. I do hope that this person who wants to travel with me could possibly shoulder my flight since the accommodation + food are already included in the prize. Visa is on me. I am not in a rush. I am willing to take this trip in a few months from now. This trip can be done only this year.
Ladakh Travel. Co, the tour operator who organized this contest sent me these complete list of prizes I won:
- 5 nights twin-share guest house accommodation in Leh / Nubra Valley
- 1 night twin-share camp accommodation at Pangong Lake
- 5 days hire of 1 x Royal Enfield 500 or 350 CC motorbike with helmets and carrier
- Buffet breakfast and dinner for six days
- Airport transfers
- Inner line permit, red cross donation and wildlife fees
Correction: After I posted this notice on Instagram, they corrected me and said this is 6 nights and 7 days duration instead.
