Impressions of Ladakh -5 days
Make a short detour of India's Little Tibet or the Ladakh Leh region. From the majestic Himalayas to the tropical forests of Western Ghats, perhaps India is the most diverse country in the world. Ladakh is the northernmost tip of India, sandwiched between the Karakoram and the Himalayas. During winter the region sometimes becomes inaccessible due the high snows. The Ladakh Leh Region is also one of the most touristy areas and also among the least explored. It's believed that Buddhism penetrated to Tibet from India via Ladakh Himalayas. The influence of Buddhism can also be seen in the capital of Ladakh, Leh.
For the Impression of Ladakh, we fly from Delhi to Leh. From Leh, we make excursions to Lower Ladakh, Khangong La, and Pangong Lake. Finally, we conclude the tour with a return flight from Leh to Delhi for your onward destination.
