In this week’s episode of Intrepid Journeys, Stephanie Tauevihi almost meets her match in a serious mountain adventure in Ladakh. In fact, she walks to such lengths she develops a blister with a personality of its own.

Ladakh is part of the Indian region of Jammu and Kashmir and only opened up to tourists in the mid 1970s making it something of an unspoilt gem for travellers. To get there, Tauevihi had to first brave Delhi, an extreme experience for someone who had never travelled beyond the Pacific. “Never travelled and bang I am in Delhi. I was completely overwhelmed,” she admits. “It’s an assault in every sense of the word, the smell, the heat, the people, the energy, it’s just huge.”
