Zanskar Tourism & Travel Guide

Located in the Kargil district of Kashmir, Zanskar is a high altitude semi desert. Located close to the Greater Himalayan mountain range, Zanskar is shielded from most of the monsoon, resulting in warm and dry summers. Parts of the Zanskar region are considered to be some of the coldest and continually inhabitable places in the world. Famous for river rafting, paragliding and trekking, Zanskar is a favourite among adventure junkies. Home to a large number of Tibetan Buddhists, Zanskar is filled with monasteries, the most famous among them being the Stongdey monastery. Due to its location and extreme weather conditions, Zanskar remains accessible only between April and August. Zanskar can be reached from Leh, which is 105 km away. There are regular buses and cabs that go from Leh to Zanskar. The nearest international airport is in Delhi.
