"Undisputed Roads experience of Ladakh"
Ladakh is made by mountains and made up of mountains. Sheer walls of rock and ice divide the Indus Valley, Tibet, Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh, and human habitation is restricted to narrow strips of greenery clinging to the rivers that drain down from mountain glaciers. This rugged region is home to one of the last undisturbed Tantric Buddhist populations on earth, protected from colonial interference, rampaging Mughals and the ravages of the Cultural Revolution by sheer force of geography.This popular hill station is famous for its picturesque views, peaceful natural bliss and elegant monasteries. This rough exterior and spiritual culture delights travellers with adventure sports, spiritual insights and peaceful beauty.
You have two options to go for Ladakh -
1) By bike or car (road trip)
