LADAKH AT A GLANCE

Ladakh is renowned for its mountain beauty and culture. The Ladakh Festival is held every year from 1st to 15 September. At present Ladakh consists of two districts — Leh and Kargil.In 1885, Leh India became the headquarters of a mission of the thankas’, Moravian Church. Buddhist monasteries sporting prayer flags, display of archery competitions, a mock marriage, and horse-polo are the some highlights of this festival. The most popular sport in Ladakh is ice hockey, which is played only on natural ice in January.

In northernmost part of India, Ladakh is nestled between the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges and is one of the most magical places on earth. It is also known as the land of high passes, the Moon Land and the Last Shangri-la to describe Ladakh’s remote beauty. It shares much of its history, culture and religion with Tibet and has become home to many Tibetans and is sometimes referred to as ‘Little Tibet’. It averages 3500 m in altitude with a population of around 2, 50,000 and is one of the most remotely inhabited places on the planet. The great Himalayan range acts as a barrier to rain clouds, only a few creep across their awesome height. As a result Ladakh’s landscape has barren beauty beyond belief.

Ladakh has an other worldly feel with impressive Gonpas perched on soaring hilltops, ancient buildings clinging to sheer rock walls and ridges that seem to reach to the heavens, tower above vibrant green farm land in the valleys, a panoramic view of jagged peaks disappearing in the horizon from the top of passes, the plains of Changthang-where Nomads (Changpas) grazed their Yaks and Pashmina goats on the high pastures and beautiful lakes blessed to wildlife in this mountain desert. The region becomes predominantly Buddhist while traveling from Srinagar to Leh.
