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.

Alchi Gompa is a Buddhist Monastery in Ladakh, 67 km west of Leh, which was established in 1000 AD, by the Translator Rinchen Zangpo, for the construction of which he had employed thirty two sculptors and wood carvers brought from Kashmir and this Monastery depicts Indian culture as found through the paintings in the complex. There are three sacred temples in this complex, namely, Lotsa Lhakhang, Jamyang Lhakhang and Samtsag Lhakhang, and few others which are worth seeing during Ladakh tour.

The other places to be visited during a Ladakh tour 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

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

Leh-Ladakh tourism and few other Travel Agencies have designed a number of Ladakh tour packages, at affordable package prices, all of them available online through the Websites of these 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.

The Ladakh tour packages are so designed that a traveller can participate in the tour from any part of India, the tour commencing from Delhi or Leh and priced in such a manner that they cover the return airfare with taxes, Hotel accommodation, Surface tour transport expenses and Sight seeing tours, besides breakfasts and dinners.

It is very easy to book Ladakh tours on line with Travel agents, by entering their web portals and using their search engines and making on line remittances through their payment gateways which are linked to Credit Card organisations and Net banking portals.
