Ladakh

The Roof Of The World

Ladakh is a mountainous region near to Tibet, known as the Trans-Himalaya, or the lands beyond the Himalaya. The Indus valley is the Ladakh heartland. It is a land of amazing natural beauty, a barren beauty such as the ‘moonscapes’ around Lama Yuru on the Leh-Kargil highway. There are also a number of stunning salt water lakes such as Tso Moriri that harbour a wealth of birdlife. Khardung La (17 582 ft), is one of the highest motorable passes in the world, providing excellent views of the far Karakoram ranges.

Ladakh was an independent kingdom for nine centuries, but it was very strongly influenced by Tibetan Buddhist culture and neighbouring Muslim states. It is home to some of the most beautiful Tibetan monasteries in the world.

Recommended For: Anyone who wishes to go to an amazing and beautiful location deep in the Himalayas.

Please Note: It is only possible to travel within Ladakh between May and September of each year.

• Please Note: Leh is above 3500 m (over 11,000 feet) and other parts of Ladakh are higher yet. There is a risk of altitude sickness and of dehydration due to altitude. Please seek medical advice before travel if you are unsure about your physical fitness.

Lama Yuru is one of the largest and oldest gompas in Ladakh, with a population of around 150 resident monks. The oldest surviving building at Lama Yuru is a temple called Seng-ge-sgang, at the southern end of the Lama Yuru rock, which is attributed to the famous builder-monk Rinchen Zangpo (958-1055 CE).

Tso Moriri - 15,075 ft
Tso Moriri
is a spectacularly beautiful natural salt water lake surrounded by high snow clad mountains that provides the water for the lake. This region in the Changthang Plateau is also known as the land of the nomads. An experience to last a lifetime would be to see the nomads’ traditional lifestyle and share a cup of butter tea in one of their black yak-hair tents along the incredible oval- shaped bank of Tso Moriri. The lake changes its turquoise blue color with the light and is surrounded by a picturesque landscape.

Tso Moriri harbours 14 species of water birds including vulnerable and endangered species such as Black-necked Cranes and huge flocks of Bar-headed Geese.

The area is also an important wildlife sanctuary. It is the only breeding ground in India of the Tibetan Ass (Kiang) which is endemic to the Tibetan Plateau. The rocky outcrops harbour Snow Leopards that prey on Tibetan Gazelle and Chiru Antelope.

Khardung La Mountain Pass
Khardung La
(Khardung Pass, la means pass in Tibetan) at an elevation 5359 m or 17 582 ft is a high mountain pass to the north of Leh which is historically important as it lies on the major caravan route from Leh to Kashgar in Chinese Central Asia.

From Leh a paved road leads to a roadway that is primarily loose rock, dirt, and occasional rivulets of snow melt. It is one of the highest motorable roads in the world. The pass experiences up to 10 feet of snow in winter, with temperatures dropping to 40 degrees Celsius below zero. Even though temperatures in summers average 20 degrees Celsius, the weather can turn for the worse suddenly.

The views from this pass are breathtaking – with the Ladakh range to the south and Karakoram Mountains to the north, and snow capped peaks at almost touching distance all around.
