Leh-Ladakh is part of Jammu and Kashmir, covering approximately 1,00,000 sq.km., surrounded by some of the impressive mountain ranges of the world, located in such a way that the Himalayan range separates Ladakh from Kashmir valley, offering an excellent destination for a Ladakh tour as one’s holiday choice.

The places to be visited during a Ladakh tour generally are

•Leh, the main location in Ladakh tour, having important spots such as Shey the summer palace of Ladakh kings, the twelve storeyed Monastery Thiksey , the wealthiest monastery of Ladakh Hemis, the Stok Palace, which is a private museum having the rarest collection of Thangkhas and eight storeyed Leh Palace built in 16th century.

•Khardongla Pass, which is 85 km away from Leh, the highest motor-able pass in the world at 5600 mtrs height and recorded in the Gunnies Book of World records as such.

•Alchi Gompa which houses a number of temples, earliest one built in 1000 AD, the temples depicting Indian tradition with beautiful paintings in their walls.

•Lamayuru Gompa, which is one of the oldest Monasteries, believed to have been constructed over a dried up lake of the Valley.

Leh-Ladakh tourism and Travel Agents of repute have designed a number of Ladakh tour packages, at affordable package prices, all of them available online through the Websites of these travel organisations, for a traveler to browse through and select, and to have the travel arrangements made firm with comfortable accommodation and hassle free local Ladakh tours.
