Visit leh ladakh once in a lifetime – 10 Reason

A destination that will always remain etched in a traveller’s mind, Ladakh is not just another destination BUT is a crosscut to a landscape that is a slice of solitude on Earth. You might be a skeptic traveller who is still worried about visiting Ladakh because of its altitude and remote location but who knows ONE DAY your elderly neighbor with his grand children in tow comes and knocks on your door and says, ‘Son!!! I’ve got 10 good reasons why you must visit Ladakh now or never.’

1.  Firstly, for its sweeping scenic beauty

Leh Ladakh‘Enclosed in between the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges, the Ladakh region is a highland that is layered in spectral of red, orange, brown, green, and grey with large crystal blue water bodies. The rugged landscape under the stark blue sky, aligned by snow crested peaks and some lush green patches of vegetation along the valleys formed by the perennial streams together make for a surreal scenic beauty. So if you are still thinking that Ladakh is just a barren landscape… I’m afraid, you are going to miss the shelter in heaven. ‘

2.  Secondly if you are FOODIE then it’s for the smacking momos and Thukkpas

Leh Ladakh Food‘I know you must have tried out both momos and thukkpas out here in the city at some Indo-Tibetan restaurant or at any edge eateries… BUT out there in the mass of indigenous Indo-Tibetan sphere you will just relish each bite of momos and slurp of thukkpa. Just imagine that there is a mystical spice hidden in the valleythat top-ups the steamy momos to a lip smacking snack… and lashing of red chilli in the bowl of thukkpa will just counteract the chilly and dry winds ensuing a great solace.’

3. Thirdly, for the vibrant and indigenous festivals

Ladakh Festivals‘You might have read or heard about the indigenous culture of the Indo-Tibetans… about their lifestyle, rituals and festivals. Man!!! I bet it will be a pleasure to your eyes if you are visiting Ladakh during the auspicious festivals of Losar, Hemis, Naro Nasjal, Kalachakra, Dosmoche, Tak, and phyang. These festivals are not just vibrant and unique in their own ways, but if you trigger the traveller inside you… you will find a sensational vibe of ritual that drives away the evil spirit. And if you can’t trigger that out, you have got to capture and enjoy the drama performance, which is a fusion of drums and trumpets, and thumping steps of the masked Lamas.’

4. Now it’s time to let yourself loose in the barren panorama
