About Ladakh

Located between the western Himalaya and Tibet, Ladakh is one of the most. secluded areas in India, if not the world. It is a region in the state of Jammu and Kashmir and is a sparsely populated, high-altitude desert, situated at an elevation between 2,500m and 4,500m. The passes are between 4,500m and 6,000m high . The area has a Buddhist and Tibetan influence. All around are prayer wheels, chortens (the equivalent of Buddhist stupas), colorful prayer flags, and Buddhist gompas (monasteries). One of the highlights of the area is the friendliness (actual), helpfulness, and politeness of the people. Ladakh is known at "Little Tibet," or the last Shangri-La.

The most visited place in Ladakh is the interesting and atmospheric town of Leh. Ladakh is divided into three main regions: the area around Leh and the Indus Valley, the Zanskar Valley, and the Kargil and Suru Valley, which is influenced by Muslim culture. Most people with whom I talked to enjoyed their trip to Ladakh and recommended it. South of Ladakh is the main Himalaya mountain range, which includes Kun (7087m) and Nun (7135m) Mountains. In the north is the Zanskar mountain range. The Stok mountain range is just south of Leh. There are several lakes in eastern Ladakh, including Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri (tso means "lake"). The Zanskar and Sur Rivers flow through Ladakh.

Unless you fly, Ladakh can only be visited when the road is open, from late June through the middle of October. During this time, me days are warm and the nights a bit cool. It is a good idea to bring a sleeping bag. There is very little rain in Ladakh, so it is a good place to visit in July and August, during the rainy season in the rest of India. Between December and February, temperatures can drop to -30°C in Leh and -50°C in other areas. One thing ro note is that Ladakh is situated at a high altitude. Therefore, it is a good idea to spend a day or two acclimatizing upon your arrival in Leh.
