Ladakh is situated in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir and is located at the northernmost part of the country. Ladakh in the recent years has become a tourist destination, especially for nature lovers since it is exceptionally rich in scenic beauty. One of the reasons for such picturesque splendor is its location, since it is located between two of the greatest mountain ranges- the Himalaya in its south and the Karakoram Range in its north. Apart from thrill seekers who like adventure sports, it is also unique because of Tibetian-Buddhist culture that has been preserved very well over the years. Some of the places to visit are listed below.
