Land Of High Passes
Located in the state of Kashmir, Ladakh is a union territory of India. Formerly falling in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh was administered a union territory on 31st October 2019. Ladakh is a unique region that stretches all the way from the Siachen Glacier to the Great Himalayas. Ladakh, known as the “coldest desert in the world,” is home to some stunning scenery.
Ladakh is a visual feast of colourful prayer flags, elaborate murals, and red-robed monks amidst a backdrop of stunning Gompas (Tibetan Buddhist monasteries). The people of Ladakh, who share many cultural traits with Tibetans, are warm and welcoming. White water rafting and mountaineering at extreme altitudes are just two of the adventure activities that can be enjoyed in Ladakh.
It is divided into two districts: district Leh and district Kargil. The former district’s most well-known town is called “Leh,” and it draws many visitors thanks to the many stunning monasteries in the area, the nearby Shanti Stupa, the many cafes, and the Leh Bazaar, which together define the unique culture of the region.
