Overview

The name ‘Ladakh’ means - land of high passes in Tibetan/Ladakhi. Ladakh has been the described as 'Moon Land', 'Magic Land', and 'Mysterious Land' for all the spheres it covers, from nature, geography, sceneries to the modest cultures that it fosters. Bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram, it lies athwart two other, the Ladakh range and the Zanskar range. Covering an area of approximately 98,000 sq. km with a population of about more than 2 lakhs, it is a repository of myriad cultural and religious influences from Tibet, India and Central Asia. The monasteries and gompasdramatically crown rocky outcrops next to flutter ing prayer flags and whitewashed stupas, while prayer wheels spun clockwise release merit-making mantras. Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist exkingdom. A trip to Ladakh is not limited to a location checked off your list, but a chronicle accomplished by some and dreamt by many.
