Mountain Journey : Leh Ladakh

Ladakh or "Little Tibet" as it is known is one of the most remote areas of India, lying to the north of the Great Himalaya on the Tibetan Plateau and to the south of the Karakorams. It remained isolated for centuries to the outside world due to its inaccessibility, and the strategic position it occupies in the northern frontier. Ladakh has a rich cultural and religious heritage as can be seen from the centuries old monasteries, some of them built on sheer cliffs and still functioning actively. Ladakh offers its visitors some rare sights like the 130km long expansive magical Pangong Lake, lying at 4267m and partly in China. The spectacular view of the Changchenmo range of mountains reflects itself in the ever changing blues and greens of the lake.

On our trips we travel through the ancient kingdom of Ladakh, soaking in the beauty of its captivating landscape, visiting monasteries, villages, palaces and humble homes, meeting people from all walks of life and understanding their way of life and culture; a journey that will truly make you want to return - such is the mesmerizing effect of the hospitable people in this enchanting Buddhist land called Ladakh.
