Summary: The largest province in Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh is a traveler’s paradise famous for its pristine beauty of nature, amazing Buddhist cultures and heart-throbbing adventures. Leh is the capital of Ladakh and one must visit place for travelers. Read this article to know more about enticing Leh tourism.

To the eastern part of Jammu & Kashmir, on the crossroads of ‘Silk Route’ from Sinkiang to West Asia, there locates the wonderful city ‘Leh’. The Capital of Ladakh – the largest province in the valley, Leh has been a premium tourist attraction owing to its unique topography, inviting weather conditions and a number of adventure activities like trekking, rafting and mountaineering. There are plenty of interesting things to do and see, with trekking being the most enticing one. Numerous trekking routes are there, which take travelers through amazing landscapes, breathtaking natural vistas and an enchanting flora & fauna of the region. Splendid monasteries are also worth exploring during trekking tour to Leh Ladakh. However, take some time for altitude acclimatization before heading on to trekking.

Top-rated Attractions of Leh:

Nubra Valley: Trip to Leh Ladakh is almost incomplete until you visit this gorgeous valley. Deserted on one side and snow-coved to the other, Nubra is an ultimate destination that leaves everyone stunned. Panoramic views of mountains & river, fantastic road-side greenery and pleasurable camel ride to watch vast stretches of sand dunes; the valley offers the best of natural bounties to explore during a Leh Ladakh tour. Beautiful monasteries in/around Nubra Valley are must-visit attractions here. You can either stay in a luxury camp or at one of nice guesthouses built here.

Thiksey Monastery: Explore a peaceful beauty along with mesmeric Buddhist traditions taking visit to Thiksey Monastery. Wonderful architecture, matchless religiousness & serenity and attractive views of Karu Valley at Thiksey are simply superb. Take snaps in front of the future Buddha – the ornate and beautiful. However, you must ask permission before doing this. Apart from that, you get to enjoy healing and calming environment, excellent food arrangements and local shopping at Thiksey.

Tsemo Gompa: Excellent place to visit, Tsempo Gompa is located on Namgyal Peak. There have been a fort and a red Maitreya temple too, which both look great with their enticing architecture. However, all these ancient heritage buildings are in ruins today. The Tsemo Gompa was built in early 15th centuary, and owing to its strategic location atop the crag, it offers stunning views of Leh town and surrounding green fields. The monastery has a rich collection of ancient manuscripts and wall paintings along with a three-story high solid gold idol of Buddha, which are really worth exploring.

The Best time to Visit

Due to high degree of snowfall and inclement weather conditions, Leh Ladakh turns inaccessible during winters. So, when it comes to plan a Leh Ladakh tour, the best time is between April and July, when the snow melts down and weather turns favorable for visitors. However, you would be better consulting a reliable travel agent before heading on your trip.

Some Most Preferred Accommodations:

• Silver Cloud Guest House

• Kidar Guesthouse

• Lha-Ri-Sa Resort

• Noble House

• Padma Guest House

Top-Rated Restaurants:

• Bon Appetit

• Penguin Garden resturanat

• Chopsticks Noodle Bar
