This extraordinary adventure into the remote and rugged landscapes of Ladakh will reveal a region shaped by staunch Buddhist traditions and a strategic location at the crossroads of ancient trade routes. With a history and culture more closely related to Tibet than India it is one of the highest continuously inhabited areas in the world with the sacred Indus River its backbone.
