Ladakh, situated between the Himalayan and Karakoram ranges, is the new heartthrob destination for the adventure lovers. It is snuggled up high in the slopes of Jammu & Kashmir and being a cold desert offers snow, ice, glaciers, mountains and streams & rivers in copious amounts. Thanks to Leh Ladakh tour packages and Leh packages, it has become very convenient for tourists to hop onto this part of the world and enjoy the bliss of nature in its true glory.

Leh is the chief town of Ladakh and a prominent commercial & tourism centre. People of all age-groups and from every part of the world love to come to Leh Ladakh and enjoy the awe-evoking spectacle that nature has bestowed upon this quiet, soulful region! But while the serenity of the snow-crested mountains bring a hint of quaintness to Ladakh, the roaring rivers call for mind-boggling adventure activities like river rafting, kayaking and boating. Leh and Ladakh also have some pleasant lakes where the fun of boating crosses all boundaries. Other interesting adventure sports on offer under the Leh packages are:

- Trekking

- Mountaineering or rock climbing

- Mountain cycling and mountain biking

- Angling or fishing

- Paragliding

Ladakh may be picturesque and a hot locale for photography but you can’t escape the sedate Buddhist monks and the Tibetan monasteries that bring a sense of tranquility and holiness to this place. Thikse, Spituk and Hemis are some of the must-visit monasteries and are epitomes of religious activity. Under the Leh Ladakh tour packages, you can also visit many other interesting places like the Jama Masjid and the famous Leh Palace.

Ladakh’s culture is also wonderful and something that will give you warm memories. The friendly locals and the cosmopolitan lifestyle will bring a smile to your face. The food is extremely tasty and you must sink your teeth into some local cuisines and try some local beverages.

Where to stay: There are plenty of good Leh hotels where you can stay. The hotels are top-class in maintenance and hygiene. They are reasonably priced though you have the option of choosing between the luxurious resorts and the modest budget Leh hotels. You can also stay in inns and guest houses. Also, it would be a good decision to book hotels in advance by buying appropriate Leh Ladakh tour packages or Leh packages.

- Hemis monastery (the most popular Buddhist monastery)
