Ladakh is a mountain region in north-west India. Located north of the Great Himalaya Range it is isolated from the summer monsoon rains. Its high altitude, dry landscape reminds that of the western Tibet. Its unique culture, ethnics of the people and the religion of the majority have strong links to Tibet too. It is a fantastic destination for those interested in Buddhism and Tibetan culture as well as in adventurous treks.
