Leh-Pangong Lake-Leh

Ladakh is country's best jaunt for nature lovers and adventurous souls. Ladakh shares its international boundary and strong cultural similarities with Tibet and is also dubbed as ?Little Tibet?. Hence, the region is not just famous for its ancient Buddhist monasteries but also hosts to a sizable population of Tibetan Buddhists. Linguistically as well, Ladakhi is very closely related to Tibetan. Rock carvings have also been discovered in many parts of the region indicating that the area has been inhabited from Neolithic times. The Indus valley which has an expansive agricultural land is the heartland of Ladakh. The region has many popular trekking destinations on either side of Indus valley which give ample opportunity to a traveler to get lost in the unexplored terrains. To compound its remote untouched mountain beauty and wild life, the region also houses numerous enchanting Gompas (Buddhist temples for learning), caves and also serves mouth-watering Tibetian cuisines. A must try in the Ladakhi cuisine is the Gurgur Cha, made with strong green tea, butter, and salt mixed in a large churn. Other local dishes such as tsampa also make for great trekking food as it can be consumed without cooking. Ladakh is a perfect destination for those who savor meditating in the lap of nature, for those who love to trek, for those who want to experience a different culture, or those who want to relish natural beauty at its purest.
