So, if it has to be a vacation in India that’s to be lived in memories for a lifetime, it has to be LADAKH! The colorful monasteries, steep curves, snow-topped peaks, double humped camels, burning sun, freezing winds and a destination that comes straight out of the world of fantasies.
Bordered on the northwest with Pakistan, north with the Chinese province of Sinkiang and east with Tibet, stands this GIANT kingdom.
The photographers around the world await for the Rohtang pass to open up its jaws for the road trip, that takes you through the steep curves of Keylong, followed by riverside camps amidst mountains at Jispa, and the beautiful roads of Baralancha La that leaves you spell bound by its beauty. If you have time in hand, you definitely must hit the road trip, for this is the place where the journey would mean more than reaching the destination.
Once you are in Leh, relax and let your body acclimatize to this sudden change of altitude.
Be to the Khardungla pass, and feel proud to be at the highest motorable road of the world. Speak to the military men on the route, they have some inspiring stories to share and then head to the Nubhra valley. The major attractions here are White sand dunes and double humped camels for ride.
The another well known place to be is the color changing Pangong Tso lake located next to China border through Changla pass. You would be awfully smitten by the beauty of this “3 idiot’s” lake.
Life at Ladakh is characterized by intense spiritualities. When you are here, visit the monasteries of Alchi, Diskit & Hunder, Hemis, Lamayuru, Shanti Stupa, Spituk, Thiksey etc. Another thing to look here is the priceless antiques and art. You might even bump into students from different parts of the world, studying Buddhism here.
Other major attractions for the tourist worldwide have been the cycling , rafting and trekking expeditions at the region.
Even if you are an Indian traveler, this world would not be same like the people you have left behind. Take this road for this is less travelled.. this leads to a whole new unseen world.
