Situated in a remote high-altitude region wedged between the Karakoram and Himalaya mountains at the northernmost tip of the India, Ladakh is a unique and beautiful part of the country. It is home to a vibrant Tibetan-Buddhist community, and therefore, rightly referred to as “Little Tibet” due not just to its culture, but also to the fact that it lies on the arid Tibetan plateau. Embraced with the untouched beauty of Mother Nature, the enthralling aspects of Leh entice adventure junkies from all corners of the world.

Ladakh “land of high passes” is a region of India in the state of Jammu and Kashmir that lies between the Kunlun mountain range in the north and the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent.It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and because of the cultural and historic facts being similar to that of Tibet, it is also known as “Mini Tibet”.“Ladakh, the Persian transliteration of the Tibetan La-dvags, is warranted by the pronunciation of the word in several Tibetan districts. On this tour we will get a grand introduction to Ladakhi landscape and culture of this picturesque and exotic place. It is a vast high-altitude desert with stunning mountain panoramas and dotted by small villages inhabited by rugged-looking people of Ladakhi and Tibetan stock. The itinerary incorporates a memorable walking experience through the beautiful landscape with stoppages at villages and monasteries en route for a closer and better understanding of their people and culture.
