Named as "Little Tibet", this area is dotted to the horizon by monasteries, whose flags are evolving from the inexorable cold mountain wind. Charming with its beauty, Ladakh is an unexplored paradise on earth. High passes create a unique ecosphere, and travel here, of course, is not easy. For travelers Ladakh was opened in the 1970s, and since then it remains a target for bold travelers. Rather severe weather conditions, A guide to Ladakh offers important information to successfully plan your trip.
