Ladakh has 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. The route to Leh, the capital of Ladakh, crosses the dramatic expanse of the Himalayas.

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 landscapes. 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. Leh and Kargil on this ancient route developed then into centers of trade.

Traveling into Ladakh by road is exciting. It takes two days from Srinagar to Leh with a mid way halt at Kargil, which gives the visitor a marvelous introduction to this spectacular destination, while easing the acclimatization process to the high altitude and low oxygen atmosphere of Ladakh. Zoji-la, the pass in the Great Himalayan wall, is the gateway into Ladakh.

Various places of interest in Ladakh include, The Palace Museum of Shey, the oldest capital of Ladakh, which has a collection of beautiful royal costumes and jewellary, exquisite Thangkas, porcelain, jade, weapons and armour.

Within easy reach of Leh is the Spituk Monastery with its commanding view of the Indus. It has fine Thangkas and a collection of ancient masks. Hemis is the biggest gompa in Ladakh and the best known for its magnificent summer festival that celebrates the birth anniversary of Guru Padmasambhava.

Other magnificent gompas located in the vicinity include the splendid Lamayuru, Likir, Phyang, Rizdong, Stakna, Matho and Chemrey Gompas, all easily accessible from Leh. Alchi is among Ladakh's most beautiful monasteries. Over a thousand years old, its wall paintings like those of Tabo in Spiti are reminiscent of the Ajanta style of painting.
