Ladakh Tourism

Mountains Near Leh LadakhOne of the largest provinces of J&K state, Ladakh has mighty peaks of Karakoram in the north and the great ranges of Himalayas in the south. River Indus divides the province into five main regions, namely, Leh (which is also the capital), Nubra, lower Ladakh, Zanskar and Rupshu. It is the perfect place for more adventurous and action-oriented people or those who would like to witness the whole new world of spiritualism and the innermost levels of devotion. A cold and dry desert land, the uneven, ragged, barren expanse of white snow-covered land invokes awe and adrenaline rush at the same time. Ethereally and surreally beautiful, the frozen face of Ladakh has a unique ancient culture flourishing in its lap.
