Ladakh is one of the most enchanting places on Earth. It is a heady combination of raw natural beauty of the land and a rich cultural heritage of its people. Nestled between the Himalayas, the Karakoram Range and the Indus river valley, Ladakh is straight out of a picture post card.

The thrill of driving on the highest motorable road in the world at Khardungla is unbeatable. Equally attractive are the visits to beautiful Buddhist Monasteries that dot the mountains across Ladakh.

Trekking the Himalayas, Whitewater rafting, camel safari in the cold desert and experiencing Tibetan culture would make sure you will never forget Ladakh for the rest of your life!

Here are some pictures which will tell a better story.
