It is basically a desert region in the Northern part of India with very scanty rainfall and heavy snowfall. However the beauty of this barren land is unparallel and breathtaking. To witness desert, snow and water all three together is a very rare sight which can be observed in Ladakh.

Unique landscapes ornament different areas of this region making it magnetic for travelers around the world.

Snow covered mountains, colorful mountains, white sand dunes, desert regions, moon land, crystal clear flowing rivers, panoramic lakes (during winters the rivers and lakes get freezed which is again a fantastic view), highest motorable roads, magical monasteries, classical villages, rare wildlife, hot springs and military camps adorn the Ladakh region.

To your greatest surprise, the landscape changes in every 30 Kms of your travel in this region.  This frequent change of scenic view will not let you sleep throughout your journey and you will eagerly wait for the scenery that’s up next.
