Ladakh, the “Land of High Passes” is a Himalayan desert plateau located in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Nestled amidst spectacularly jagged snow-capped mountains, this former Buddhist kingdom is dotted with ancient gompas (monasteries) and stupas, colourful fluttering prayer flags and picturesque lakes.
It is also home to some rare and endangered wildlife species such as the black-necked crane, snow leopard, Eurasian lynx and ibex. With numerous trekking trails, camping sites, river rafting options in the Indus and Zanskar rivers, Ladakh is the ultimate destination for adventure seekers and backpackers from all around the world.
