Leh tour packages promise a fabulous trip to Ladakh, a heavenly hill station in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The majestic beauty of India cannot be completely experienced without visiting the northern part of the country. If Delhi & Agra are renowned for their monuments, Jaipur is famed for its royal palaces and Srinagar for its shimmering lakes. But it is the snow-crested Ladakh that sits atop at a staggering height forming the diadem of the country. Ladakh’s beauty is to be seen to be believed. The charming hill station has become a hot tourist spot in the summer months (the place is frigid cold in winter and not conducive for tourism). Both Indians and foreigners rush to Ladakh for having a whale of a time in the summer.

The natural beauty that God has bestowed upon this region is immaculate and divine. A trip to Ladakh will transport you to a world that is inhabited by glaciers, the melting snow and the hilly ravines. The awe-evoking height at which the place is nestled between the Himalayas and the Karakoram adds to the mystic charm of the place and makes it a perfect holiday getaway. It’s a world away from the world!
