Hemmed in by the Kunlun and Great Himalaya ranges, Ladakh remains a sparsely populated land of stark natural beauty. An independent kingdom for some 900 years, Ladakh developed a unique culture that strongly resembles Tibet. Islam has also left its mark, with Muslims making up about half of the population. Highlights of a trip to Ladakh include an exploration of the Indus River Valley, driving on the world's highest road, and touring ancient Buddhist monasteries perched high in the mountains. Outdoor enthusiasts can gear up for rugged treks and river rafting, while cultural tours inspire with a range of vibrant summer festivals. Picturesque Leh makes a good base for exploring the region. Note that due to extreme weather conditions, some roads remain closed for about half the year. Also, a strong military presence means you may need permits to access certain areas.
