A group of 13 visually impaired travellers embarked on a journey to Ladakh from Germany for a 15- days trip. Pala Namgyal, a travel agent owner based in Germany organised the tour. He informed that there are 15 people out of which two can see and accompanying others.
The unique tour is aimed at bridging the gap between those who don’t have vision and the sighted. For most of them, this visit has been long pending and feels that it is a dream come true.
“Travelling is one of those pleasures in life that the visually impaired often do not get to experience it,” said Pala Namgyal.
Sensory tourism has changed the lives of many people with vision impairment, allowing them to have more inclusive tourist experiences.
