If you love traveling and are particularly from India, you mustn't miss Ladakh. Ladakh is magical, with unbelievable landscapes, green pastures, snow-peaked mountains, beautiful Tibetan charm, and the hub of Kashmir tourism, making it traveler-friendly. This untainted place will warm your soul no matter how young or old you are. With many things to explore and experience, here are a few reasons why Ladakh is one of the must-visit places in Indian tourism.
Ladhak –the land of mountain passes – attracts millions of people worldwide. The tourist destination is set at the heart of the Himalayan Ranges, nestled in the bosom of the Karakoram, Zanskar, and Ladakh mountain ranges and upper Indus valley. It is one of the world's highest regions, making sunrises and sets paradisical. Kargil – one of the significant places in Indian history, where the Kargil war was fought and won by India, is considered the gateway to Ladakh.
The Capital city, Leh, is the epitome of Tibetan culture, Buddhist monasteries, scenic landscape, thrilling adventure-sports, and delicious cuisine.
Jammu and Kashmir tourism has improved over the past two years due to the surge in national traveling. While we will soon have direct flights to Jammu and Kashmir from major cities in India, to reach Leh, you must board a flight via Delhi.
Reasons Why Ladakh is a Traveller's Dream Destination
Ladakh's culture is unlike any part of India: The Buddhist significance creates a good impact on everything else here – from places to people to food and festival to shopping and lifestyle. Tibetan culture has become Ladakh-Kashmir's backbone over the years.
Ladakh is filled with natural tourist attractions: Pangong Tso, Leh, Shey, Stok Palace, Tso Moriri, Kargil, Nubra valley, and numerous crystal-clear blue lakes.
Cuisines: A trip to this magical land is incomplete without their local dishes, a combination of Tibet, Nepal, and Kashmir's food culture. Your taste buds will dance in joy after having Thukpa, Momos, traditional Pink tea, Kahwa, Mokthuk, Skyu, Thenktuk, and Chutagi.
Being daredevil: Khardung La, one of the highest motorable roads in the world, can make your heart pumped up with thrill. You can cycle up here or ride a motorbike. The site below will be worth your efforts.
Cultural extravaganza: Cultural fests, like the Ladakh Festival, is a kaleidoscope of joy, cultural diversity, and art. The critical elements of these fests are monks, dances, drum beats, costumes, and food.
