Leh and Ladakh

Leh
Previously used as a stop for trading caravans, this region is now famous for trekking areas and Buddhist sites. Leh is dominated by the majestic facade of Leh Palace, which is now ruined. Entire area is dotted by mud-brick houses which always seem to crumble and finely built stupas. Beneath the mountain, lies the bustling bazaar full of shops, restaurants and hotels.

Ladakh
Huge mountains, panoramic vistas and many other wonders of nature encircle this Buddhist ex-kingdom. Ladakh is full of Tibetan Buddhist monasteries which shine brightly on the backdrop of mountains and drastic plains. The land speaks of beauty and serenity, where thousands of tourists flock every year to attain inner peace while savouring the nature in its most beautiful form.
