Ladakh, also known as the land of high passes, is a spectacle to behold. Travelling at these heights, the massive snow-clad peaks seem merely an arm’s reach away. The crisp clean air, the azure skies and the jagged mountains as the backdrop, all leave you awestruck. Go to Ladakh to witness the unparalleled sights, the monasteries atop the rough landscapes and the experience of meeting the locals.

Nestled in the extreme northern end of India, this region is also known as the Trans Himalayan region. The three dominant mountain ranges in this area are the Zanskar, Ladakh and the Stok and they mark the boundary between the Western Himalayas & the vast Tibetan plateau. Even at its lowest in the valleys (for instance, the Nubra Valley), Ladakh boasts of an altitude of 3050m/10500 ft.

Spread across a large area, Ladakh is a paradise for nature and adventure lovers. Most parts of Ladakh are absolutely barren due to scanty rainfall leading to no natural vegetation or indigenous flora. However, the people have learned to cultivate the land and you might see patches of green near settlements.

The people here follow Buddhism and for those interested in knowing more about it will find plenty of opportunities while visiting monasteries, conversing with the monks or even simply interacting with the locals.
