Leh & Ladakh (7 Nights / 8 Days)

     

Leh - The land of Monks and Monasteries


Leh the erstwhile capital of the kingdom of Ladakh is now a dream destination of many and the Mecca of adventure enthusiasts! It is one of the coldest deserts in the world, located at a distance of 434 Kms from Srinagar and 474 Kms from Manali (Himachal Pradesh).


The sky overhead is a vivid dark blue from the altitude – a breathless 3505m above sea level – and the modern town melts into a crumbling old city of timber and mud bricks. The Indian Army maintains a large military base near the airport to patrol the borders with China and Pakistan, but their main job is repairing roads and bridges and keeping the mountain passes clear of snow.
