Tibetan Lands: Ladakh – Trekking and Touring the Last Shangri-La

Tibetan Lands

A mountainous area, surrounded by high hills of brown talus and snowy mountains that stand as sentinels in the sky, Ladakh lies to the northwest of the Indian sub-continent at altitudes of between 10,000 and 20,000 feet. The multicolored mountain ranges are ornamented with monasteries, temples, caves, castles, and stupas. The great river Indus flows through the middle of Ladakh and the capital Leh is at the center. During the winter, Ladakh is quite cold and there is much snow, but from May until October, it is a spectacularly beautiful place to visit.


This very special taste of Shangrila does a bit of trekking, relishes the beauty of some of the key lakes, crosses the world’s highest motorable pass and gets inside the fascinating culture of this high-altitude Shangrila.
