There are only very few places in the world that spreads a magic of peace and serenity that are formed especially for the wanderers and travellers, that are picturesque yet adventurous and that are wild yet traditionally mild. Leh fits this very description. You will not find a straight road, everything is marked as uphill and downhill; it is a dream district, surrounded by the majestic Himalayan range, the Zankar range and Ladhak on three sides. It borders Kashmir, China and Lalul Spiti of Himachal Pradesh making it the most ideal spot for trekking and mountaineering.
You can definitely understand how enchanting the district would look with such encompassing sites around. In addition, the popularity of Leh is in its culture and architecture. The Tibetan culture shows their prominences in this place, rooted are ancient stupas and monasteries and age old Palaces and Forts.
What’s more eye catchy are the barley fields, woven with narrow lanes and gushing streams. The houses are built in the Ladhaki Style with red bricks and wooden frames. The Shanti Stupa, Thikse Monastry, Leh Palace and Nubra Valley are few points of interests for the travellers. Trekking is high on demand here and is considered one of the bests in Asia.
