Tour Details

Ladakh often branded as the land of numerous passes, mystic lamas, the Broken Moon and the last Shangri la, beckons tourists to discover its mountains, gorges, winding rivers, glacial slopes and shimmering lakes. The vast wilderness here has its own charm and mysticism.

Ladakh is bounded by two of the world’s highest mountains ranges, the Karakoram and the great Himalayas. The altitude varies between 9000 to 14000 feet above the sea level.
Before the Indo-Pak ceasefire between India and Pakistan the Ladakh region comprised the three district of Leh, Kargil and Skardo. Later the district of Skardo and a part of Kargil became the territory of Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and Ladakh remained with Jammu & Kashmir state. During the 1962 war between China and India, a part of Leh was also usurped by China.
