Leh/Ladakh

The magical Buddhist ex-Kingdom of Ladakh and it’s capital Leh are stunningly beautiful and inhabited by the friendliest (mostly Tibetan) people in all of India. The spectacular desert scenery, arid mountains and jagged peaks are gorgeous. Contrasting the stark peaks are the monasteries that provide a glimpse into spiritual and cultural life of centuries past. This was one of our favorite stops in Indian and shouldn’t be missed!
