a remote yet popular tourist destination characterised by placid blue lakes freezing winds barren landscape and multi-hued mountains. History of Ladakh Situated in a high altitude cold desert at about 3500 meters above sea level Ladakh is tucked in between the worlds greatest mountain ranges Great Himalayas and the Karakoram. It is also traversed by two other parallel ranges Zanskar and Ladakh. As per geological studies Ladakh was once a submerged portion of a large lake a few million years ago. Powerful tectonic movements pushed up the submerged mass to become the Ladakh of today. This is evident from the drainage basins Tso-moriri Tsokar and Pangong-tso which are situated on the plateaus of Rupshu and Chushul of south-east Ladakh. Historically Ladakh had a kingdom of its own towards the 10th century and was ruled by dynasties which were descendants of the kings of Old Tibet. The Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh reached the summit of its glory during the reign of King Sengge Namgyal in the 17th century. The silk route which connected the plains of India to Central Asia and West Asia flourished during this period. Textiles spices raw silk carpets dyestuffs and narcotics were the goods traded by the merchants during this period. Leh the capital city of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh gradually became a bustling entry point in this trade route. Later the kingdom of Ladakh along with the neighbouring province of Baltistan was incorporated with Jammu Kashmir in the 18th century. Post Independence Baltistan became a part of Pakistan whereas Ladakh remained with Jammu Kashmir. People Culture of Ladakh Ladakh is famous for its dramatic landscape and Buddhist heritage. Ladakhi Purig Tibetan Hindi and English are spoken in the region. There are many picturesque hamlets in Ladakh situated on the banks of the Indus River. All these villages have Buddhist monasteries or gompas which are located atop hillocks in their vicinity. Buddha Purnima Dosmoche Galdan Namchot and Losar are the most celebrated festivals in Ladakh. The Dosmoche Festival is also another of significant festival of the region. The two-day event involves dramatic dance performances by monks and offerings made by them to ward off evil spirits and ill fortune and draws many tourists to the region. Leh the principal town of Ladakh is bordered by Pakistan occupied Kashmir in the west China in the north east Lahul Spiti of Himachal Pradesh in the south-east and Stok mountain range in the south. Today Leh is an important Buddhist centre and it houses a settlement for Tibetan refugees.

Leh has an unparalleled ability to mesmerize with its unique topography. From its picturesque valley to Pangong Tso pristine water reflecting three that my eyes could detect Distinct shades winning over altitude sickness and crossing the worlds highest motorable road at Khardungla pass 18380 feet above sea level with my 86 yr-old grandma - every single moment was enjoyable. Was enchanted by the shimmering sand-dunes at Nubra valley. Nubra valley is considered the heart of Ladakh and well its true because without seeing by your own eyes one would not believe the tremendous diverse scenery on a grand scale with green oasis villages surrounded by thrillingly harsh arid mountains and Page 3/14

shimmering sand dunes. These scenic delights are way-beyond-my words to express actually. Words fall short. Tour to Ladakh is mostly famous for its road trip because of its mesmerizing scenery. That can be done from Jammu via sonmarg Dras kargil and then crossing the famous snow walled zojila pass. And also one can reach there by direct flight from Delhi. Flights availability is limited. Prior booking is mandatory. One would require two to three days for local sightseeing that includes Alchi monastery oldest one Likir monastery Hemis gompa the grand one Thiksey monastery Old ruins of original Leh palace though now the royal family have shifted to Stok Palace whose few areas are open for visitors Hall of Fame war memorial and the Shanti Stupa. One can enjoy the Indus valley beauty while visiting the Land of moon Lamayuru and the Sangam meeting of two rivers. Then two day trip to Tsomoriri lake 7 and half hrs one way journeyand so night stay is preferred. Back to Leh. Then two days for Pangong Tso lake 5hrs journey one way and here also night stay is preferable because of the thrilling experience of night stay at camp by the lake bonfire and beautiful starry sky view. Back to Leh next day. One can do paragliding there in daylight. The famous 3 Idiots butt seats as well as Kareena Kapoors scooter and helmet is given on rent for photography. Then finally the trip to the heart to Ladakh. Three days for this trip is best because there are lots of places to visit. Toughest part is passing the Khardung La pass highest motorable pass and the weather change is drastic within minutes. Prolonged stay at this place is not advisable because lack of greenery and high altitude one can face minute difficulty in breathing. We were travelling with senior citizen so we carried oxygen cylinder for emergency. Nubra trip takes almost 5 hrs. There is Diskit monastery and Champa monastery from where one can enjoy the picturesque Nubra valley. Night stay. Next day travel to Hundar- place of sand dunes and there one can enjoy Bactrian camel 2 humped ride. Next day on way to Turtuk village one can view the siachen river and karakoram range but one needs to get an Inner Line permit to visit the whole valley. Rest at night and next say back to Leh. Keep that day for shopping apricots dry fruits and pashmina shawls. There is Tibetian market full of German silver jewellery. Few good restaurants are there which provide Tibetian dish and steaming momos. Yes the ideal time to visit is April to august or September. Temperature is comfortable. Though its advisable to avoid June - July month because of rains. That time land slide is common. Altitude sickness is common so carry medicine for that and do carry basic medicines for fever headaches acidity and muscle sprain spray. Hope this review serves good for the would-be visitors. Happy journey :" - Mousumi Bhattacharya Oct 25 2017 Page 4/14

Happy journey" - Mousumi Bhattacharya Oct 25 2017 Tso Pangong a reflection of heaven "Many have visited Leh and Ladakh and have spoken lengths about its beauty. I just want to tell you guys to head there without second thought as you will not be disappointed. First things first skip local sight seeing in the Leh city. They are overrated period. Instead head for an overnight stay at Nubra valley you will be at the khardungla pass on the way. Also include overnight stay in tso pangong and tso moriri. Dont forget to try river rafting at zanskar river. Things to remember take a day to acclimated to Ladakhs altitude carry enough warm clothes and spend time in taking breaks while travelling to enjoy the beauty Ladakh is. I have been to many places Page 5/14

across India but nothing compares to the majestic and mesmerising Pangong lake. Also try and plan in such a way that you travel directly from Pangong lake to tso moriri lake. Trust me your life will be changed after this road trip." - Srinivas Ramadasu Bangalore Oct 11 2017 Had a road trip starting Srinagar to Leh via kargil then round trip from leh to nubra valley to pang "In India I have been to many places but this road trip to Leh one of the best decision I had made. If you are starting to Delhi you can go via air to Srinagar and then spend a day or two in Srinagar and make a short trip to Gulmarg on horses. Ours was group of 7 people so we take two bikes and one Innova for the trip. 1st day you can start from Srinagar via road towards Leh and make night stop at kargil as you can get accommodation and good food easily fruits specially berries were real good then you start 2nd day from kargil and reach Leh in the evening I advise please take rest for the 3rd day at Leh and go for local sightseeing Leh monastery etc. From 4th day start your trip towards Nubra valley it is like a white desert roads are good small dhabas are available after few kilometres. Make your stay there. You can also do desert safari and watch local danse show over there. 5th day head towards pangyong lake this road from pangyong to Nubra is the best part of the trip. The landscapes mountains open deserts river side you experience all. Reach pangyong it was real cold we reached in the evening just at sunset and had taken rest. 6th day after visiting colourful pangyong lake we head back towards Leh through this we have been to THE KHARDUNGLA PASS the highest motorable road in the world air was thin and temperature was low and even you found snowfall often. Roads were not as good for bikes so please be careful and slow over there. 7th day we started towards Manali through darang but we made our stay at darang roads was definitely not good in between. 8th day we reached Manali. Over all it was life time experience please take important medicines enough water fruits tool kit for bikes bandages and ankle and foot supports knee caps etc. Also must take rain coats and good shoes high heel preferable." - Anshu Aggarwal Moga Oct 1 2017 Awesome place for any trip "1. Why to visit It is a place now known for Buddhist sites and exciting tracking areas along with dream goal for a biker. It is at a height of around 3500 m. It is having a wide range of options to explore. 2. Must Visit Places. While going towards Leh from its South Western route via Srinagar Magnetic Hill Moonland in Lamayuru village and Pathar Sahab Gurudwara is highly recommended. Shanti Stupa in the middle of the city is a wonderful place to visit. Leg palace War Museum and Zorawar fort is suggested. Around Leh Pangong Tso lake Thikse and She Monastery Indus- Zanksar River and Khardung La is must visit places. 3. Local food and shopping.
