About us

Our story

Lagangpa Tours was born from the meeting between Gonbo and Bindu, the founders. After three summer seasons in collaboration with one another, during which Gonbo was in charge of the logistic of the trekking aspect and Bindu was responsible for the Francophone market and the commercialisation of the stays, we placed our skills and our savoir-faire in the benefice of our own agency in Ladakh.

Born in Rumbak, a small village of 38 inhabitants located in the National Park of Hemis in the South of Leh, I am coming from a Ladakhi rural family which has a life paced by the agrarian activity and some animal care (cows, yaks and donkeys). I studied Tibetan Buddhism for 15 years within the Monastery of Spituk and in the area of Karnataka (in the South of Indian).


I then developed my competencies in the field of trekking by working just as well as a cook, a mule driver, a guide assistant, then as a guide for various Ladakhi trekking agencies. Then I became a Logistic Supervisor for seven years in Leh.


I enjoy sharing my passion for my country. I know how to let you experience our Ladakhi culture and make you discover the beauty of the landscapes, the life in the villages, the habits and customs as well as the local handicraft.

Born in the North-East of India, I grew up in France and studied Tourism and obtained a professional license in Ecotourism and a Professional Master in Travelling Business (Tourism and Sustainable Development). Then I started to work for two well-known French Travelling Agencies who specialise in Adventure Tourism (namely Atalante and Allibert Trekking).

I arrived in New Delhi in 2009 where I worked as a Travelling Adviser then as an Assistant in charge of the destinations to the Himalayas. In 2010 I was promoted to Customer Logistic Supervisor in Ladakh. For 3 years, each summer, I was based in the Himalayas and in winter in the Alpes where I was responsible for the reception in several well-known hotel establishments. During the 2014 summer I took in charge the running of the Hotel Nimmu House.

Delighted by all these experiences in Ladakh, I felt like sharing my love for this area and offering my savoir-faire as well as my inter-cultural skills in the service of curious travellers.
