Proud to say that I am one of those lucky souls on this Planet who got the opportunity of experiencing the Serenity of the Heaven on Earth twice in two years. It is indeed the Land of Lamas, the Paradise, Ladakh. There is so much to describe that just 1 write up won't do justice to this Masterpiece!
Heard loads of things, read unending descriptions, seen mesmerizing visuals about Ladakh, but nothing better than to feel it. Ladakh is a district in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, India known for its untouched alpine beauty. It is surrounded by 3 mountain ranges - Zanskar Ranges, Karakoram Ranges and the Himalayan Ranges.
The best time to visit Ladakh is during the months of June to Mid of September and yes, remember to pack a few good woolens and jackets. Riding here is considered a Dream and the Ultimate test of every Biker. But, for those who can't ride a bike, don't be disappointed. There are other means you can reach the dream destination. You can directly land at the Leh airport and start your voyage (I did this the first time) or build up trip gradually by either starting from Manali or Srinagar.
I found the one below a safer option, allows your body to adjust to the sparse Oxygen and High Altitude, in addition to the phenomenal spectacle it offers.
