About LADAKH

Located in greater Himalayan range – Ladakh (Land of high mountain passes) is India’s most remote and sparsely populated region, a high-altitude desert cradled by the Karakoram and Great Himalaya ranges.  Often described as “Little Tibet” or “the last Shangri-La”, and culturally different from rest of  India. It is one of the last enclaves of Mahayana Buddhism.

To reach here best is to fly from Delhi to Leh. A small atmospheric little town that was a staging post on the old Silk Route. North of Leh, across the highest driveable pass in the world, Khardung La. From far east of Ladakh you can glimpse Tibet from the shores of Pangong Tso Lake.  The region  offers an amazing opportunity to adventure lovers from including treks to looks for Snow Leopard, Cycling, Rafting, Landscape photography, 4WD Driving…
