Ladakh

SPELLBINDING LADAKH

Ladakh is a secluded, cold desert that extends from the Kunlun Mountains, and is sparsely inhabited by the locals who have adopted a fairly Tibetan influenced culture & lifestyle. The region is acknowledged for its sheer beauty, being surrounded by exceptionally majestic peaks that stand in stark beauty. The entire landscape is dominated by snow-covered ranges with narrow roads wedged in between the junctions. Bike rides and jeep safaris through the panoramic landscape are what everyone aspires to indulge in. Every now and then you run into the mighty Indus that runs through the fairly barren region, that is equally breathtaking to look at.

The region is inhabited by locals who trace themselves back to the earliest settlers who migrated to India. They are nomads, craftsmen, herders, and traders. They are fond of archery and grow apricots in abundance. Most of the cuisine is inspired by Tibetan ways of cooking, which involves the preparation of a lot of body warming soups, steamed dumplings, and noodles with flavorful broth. Rafting in the waters of Indus is one of the most undertaken activities in here.
