Ladakh – a beautiful name made up of six letters that sounds so good and fascinating to pronounce – is a place everyone of us has always dreamt of visiting. Calling the name itself is no less than chanting Buddhist mantras and passing into a state of trance. The cold desert is so rich in culture and high on landscapes containing meadows, high passes, lakes and wildlife that the region has been on travelers’ top priority.
Unlike other popular tourist places, Ladakh is not an ordinary travel destination where you can go sightseeing or camping, but more of an explorer’s paradise where land and large water bodies are roofed by snow-capped mountains and high passes leading to the other side of the valley. Winters show absolutely no empathy to the inhabitants and guests when temperature drops to -40°C.
