Though Ladakh is situated in the secluded Trans-Himalayan region, with Leh Ladakh tour packages, it has become very convenient to travel to this part of the world. Tourists and globetrotters from every corner of the planet visit this heavenly hill station and experience a delightful holiday. A trip to Leh Ladakh has a lot to offer to you. Nevertheless, here are the 3 chief reasons why you should visit this place:

1. Paradise-like beauty: Ladakh can be compared only to paradise when it comes to natural beauty. The place is swarming with glaciers, snow-capped mountains, bustling streams and cascading rivers. The picturesque locales are so heart-rending that many Bollywood movies are being shot at Ladakh these days. In terms of postcard perfect beauty, one can say that it’s not just another hill station. It’s a paradise!

2.Adventure sports: the second reason why you should plan a trip to Leh Ladakh is adventure games. Ladakh is called the ‘adventure capital’ of India because the place serves a cocktail of a string of adrenaline-pumping sports. Trekking, rock climbing, river rafting, mountain cycling, paragliding, angling- what more can you ask for. Jeep safari is another interesting feature that fascinates the adventure junkies!

3.Spiritual experience: Thirdly, Ladakh is also a spiritual destination as the place is teeming with Tibetan monasteries, Buddhist monks and stupas. Hemis Monastery, Thikse Monastery and Spituk Monastery are some of the more popular ones. Interestingly, Ladakh displays its cosmopolitan persona by presenting Hindu temples and Muslim mosques as well. Jama Masjid is a must-visit under the Leh Ladakh tour packages.

Where to stay: There are many Ladakh hotels where you can nestle in. The hotels are all clean & well-maintained and come in a wide range. You can easily find the hotel of your choice. However, it will be prudent to book Ladakh hotels in advance under the Leh Ladakh tour packages to avoid last-minute hassle.

Major Leh Ladakh attractions: Some of the places you should visit during your trip are

- Hemis monastery

- Royal Palace

- Thikse monastery

- Spituk monastery

- Jama Masjid

- Prayer Wheel

- Shey Gompa

- Likir Gompa

- Alchi Gompa

- Sani

- Karcha

Best time to visit Leh Ladakh: Ladakh is not conducive for tourism or sightseeing during winter since the place becomes icy cold. Hence, the best time for a trip to Leh Ladakh is during May-September (summer season). But if you do take a trip during winter, you will be greeted by the winter sports like skiing.

Local festivals: Ladakh festival, Hemis Festival, Monastery festival, Metukba festival, Nagrang festival
