Fondly called the ‘Little Tibet’, Ladakh has picturesque sceneries in abundance. Situated amidst the Himalayan Range and Karakoram Range, this remote place is filled with a tranquil and mystic environment. A trip to Ladakh is astounding for every visitor because of its bare simplicity and the most profound impact on the body, mind and soul.

Ladakh, although a part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, has been granted the status of autonomous hill council. Due to its proximity to Tibet, Ladakh is dominated mainly by the Tibetan culture. Surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Karakoram Range and the Himalayas, this place has managed to retain its splendid natural ambience. This serene and deserted landscape offers breathtaking views of lofty snow-clad mountains, deep mystic valleys and beautiful monasteries. Buddhism being the dominant religion, this placid atmosphere is filled with spiritualism due to the huge number of monasteries and wavering Buddhist flags. Ladakh tourism enables you to plan out a comprehensive trip to this fascinating land.

A Leh-Ladakh tour will help you discover the exquisite natural panorama which cannot be experienced anywhere else int eh world. With deserted landscapes at one end of the city to green cultivated lands on the other end, Leh is filled with the diverse elements of beauty. The elegance of the Zanskar River flowing amidst the city and meeting the splendid Indus River adds an extra touch of beauty to this alluring place. The Leh Palace, one of the famous landmarks of this city is an architectural beauty. With nine storeys, this palace has walls decorated with old Buddhist paintings depicting the rich history of the past. There are a number of hotels in Ladakh that will make your stay comfortable.

The innumerable monasteries or Gompas fill this place with immense divinity that will surely enrich you with a heavenly experience.

Some of the most famous monasteries are Likir Monastery, Spituk Monastery, Shanti Stupa, Hemis Gompa, Namgyal Tsemao Gompa, Thiksey Monastery, Lamayuru Monastery, Shey Monastery and Phugal Gompa. These monasteries are of great religious prominence and contain beautiful Buddha statues and spectacular Thangka paintings. Ladakh tourism, through various tour packages, has effectively brought many visitors and Buddhist devotees to experience the spiritualism of Ladakh.

The Zanskar Valley and Nubra Valley with an approximate elevation of 13000 feet and 10000 feet respectively offer one of the most splendid sceneries that will completely keep you awestruck. With crystal clear azure water and outlined with snow peaked mountains, the Tso Moriri Lake and Pangong Lake are no less than a paradise.
