Leh, the high altitude desert kingdom with an area of 45,110 square kilometres in the northern state of Jammu and Kashmir, India is now the second largest district in the country (after Kutch, Gujarat) in terms of area. The 17th century capital of the Namgyal Empire is now the base station from where one can go on jaunts to the adjoining valleys of Ladakh.
The azure skies, the lofty, barren mountains in varied hues, the snow capped peaks and fortress-like monasteries which encompasses this quaint cold desert town lends a vivid canvas to the innumerable roadside cafes, restaurants and beer bars, the carpet and curio shops. In one panoramic glance of your eyes, you can go from barren land to sand dunes to glacier deposits, such is the charm of this wonder land. A popular Ladakhi saying “The land is so barren and the passes so high that only our fiercest enemies or our best friends would want to visit us” very aptly sums it up.
One glimpse of the picturesque countryside with innumerable prayer flags flutter in the gentle breeze, 'Juley' the local greeting, having a soft sweet ring, the crisp clean environs acts as a soothing balm transporting you to a magical world - the Land of Lamas.
Get set for an adventure of a lifetime as you explore the mighty Himalayas, at the height of more than 18,000 ft. The trip lets you avail the diverse terrain of chaotic villages, picturesque countryside, and extraordinary roads to treacherous heights where the adrenalin rush is high but oxygen levels low. The tour tests your abilities and fitness but rewards you with unimagined sights that only few have seen and experienced.
