About Ladakh

Leh, the capital of Ladakh is a fascinating destination. Age-old monasteries, quaint lanes, colorful markets and stunning views of the Himalayas make Leh an exotic destination. Leh is where your adventure in Ladakh begins. You can go trekking through the mountainous terrain of Ladakh, enjoy a game of polo in a high altitude arena or watch an archery contest where local residents compete in a contest that remains unchanged by time. Mountaineering, white water rafting and wildlife tours are other adventurous attractions of Leh Ladakh India. Though the weather can be freezing cold, the smiles on the faces of the Ladakhi people are sure to warm your heart. Feel on top of the world in Ladakh, on tours to Ladakh with Leh Ladakh India.

Leh (3505)
A tiny speck of freshness in a hollow between monotonous grey slopes at a transiion from desert to greenery.  Leh is a jigsaw of terraced roofs and houses jammed against one another.  The bazaar cuts the town in two; this main artery reaches out from the centre to the enormous Royal Palace.  Built into rock, the palace dominates the whole countryside.  The mosque used by the Muslim community lies at the far end of the bazaar.  In the narrow lanes are small eating places; here the standard meal is a bowl of boiled noodles, toped with meat both, washed down with salted butter tea. The little bazaar (Markets) sells hand-woven carpets with dragon designs, trinkets of silver and copper set with turquoise and painted thankas or scrolls.

Monasteries & Gompas in Ladakh

In Ladakh these have always been the centre of religious, social, econmic and even political functions.  They are a living institution, especially because of their ecological position in a country where the barren mountainous character of the landscape forces the economy to function on a collective basis.  Most of the gompas lie on major ancient trading routes extending from Tibet to Ladakh, among them Hemis, Thiksey, Alchi, Lamayuru, Ringdum, Karsha, etc.  Almost all the gompas follow a code of architecture. The interior is divided into several halls, of which Du-Khang, the main prayer hall, is more spacious. A gompa also has dwelling cells, library and a large courtyard where dances and other ceremonies are performed.

Travel Information Ladakh

The main overland approach to Ladakh is from the Kashmir Valley via the 434 km Drinagar-Leh road which remains open for traffic from early June to November. The most dramatic part of this road journey is the ascent up the 11,500 feet/3,505 m high Zoji-la, the pass in the Great Himalayan Wall that serves as the gateway to Ladakh. The J&K State Road Transport Corporation (J&K SRTC) operates regular Deluxe and Ordinary bus services between Srinagar and Leh on this route with an overnight halt at Kargil. Taxis (cars and jeeps ) are also available at Srinagar for the journey. Groups can charter Deluxe and A-class buses for Leh, Kargil or Padum (Zanskar) for the J&K SRTC at Srinagar.

A number of high passes fall en route among which the highest one, known as Taglang-la, is the world's second highest motorable pass at an altitude of 17,469 feet/ 5,325m. H.P. Tourism, H.P. STRC and J&K SRTC operate Deluxe and Ordinary bus services between Manali and Leh and we also arrange those for the travelers and the trekkers. The bus journey between Leh and Manali takes about 19 hours or two days with an overnight halt in camps at Serchu or Pang. Gypsy and jeep jeep taxis are also available, both at Manali and Leh.

By Air Travel
Indian Airlines operates regular scheduled flight to Leh from Delhi, Chandigarh, Jammu and Srinagar. Some private airlines are also planning to operate air services between Delhi and Leh in the near future.
