Leh Ladakh Himalaya :

General Info:

Once a hectic centre visited by numerous traders travelling on the trade routes leading to the teeming bazaars of central Asia, Leh, today the district capital of Ladakh plays host instead to visitors from all over the world. Located in the western end of the Great Himalaya, Ladakh displays an astounding variety of mountain ranges with river basins and numerous rivers. Composed of bald granite hills and mountains, Ladakh also sustains a sizeable amount of wild life. Today it offers the traveller and the adventurer numerous trails to explore and trek. While Leh itself offers the visitor almost all the amenities he could ask for, the rest of the region remains remote and uninhabited save for the occasional village with its own Monastery and green fields of barely, wheat and peas the only crops that manage to grow in this barren land.

Ladakh is a land like no other. Apart from Great Himalaya it is bounded by one more mighty mountain ranges of world i. e. KARAKORAM. Formed only a few years ago by the buckling and folding of the earth's crust as the Indian sub-continent pushed with irresistible force against the immovable mass of Asia.Ladakh lies at altitudes ranging from 2750 m (9000 ft) at Kargil in the west to over 7600 m (25000 ft) in the Karakoram range.

The flight into Leh, the capital of Ladakh, is an unforgettable experience - over the dramatic expanse of the Himalayas - for Ladakh straddles four main ranges - the great Himalayan, Zanskar, Ladakh and the Karakoram. This is the highest inhabited region in India and the River Indus with its tributaries, slice their way through the ranges.

Remote though it is, Ladakh has never been totally isolated. Over the centuries the trade route from India to central Asia passed through this area undeterred by its high passes and desert landscape. Caravans carrying spices, brocades, pearls, carpets and more mundane merchandise like salt and tea took just two months to cover the distance from Amritsar in the Punjab to the central Asian towns of Varkand and Khotan! and Kargil on this ancient route developed then into centres of trade.

Ladakh offers treks ranging from 3 days to 24 days some of them going through the stark landscape of Zanskar while others lead into the neighbouring state of Himachal Pradesh.
