About Leh - Ladakh
 
One of the largest provinces of J&K state, Ladakh has mighty peaks of Karakoram in the north and the great ranges of Himalayas in the south. River Indus divides the province into five main regions, namely, Leh (which is also the capital), Nubra, lower Ladakh, Zanskar and Rupshu. It is the perfect place for more adventurous and action-oriented people or those who would like to witness the whole new world of spiritualism and the innermost levels of devotion.

Ladakh lies in Trans Himalayan region and is known for its pure atmosphere, deep blue skies and the unforgettable experience it provides. It is a rugged land bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalayan and the Karakoram Range. Here, nature's beauty is both raw and naked, barren and rusty, desolate and remote and yet live and colourful ! Words seem less to describe the virgin beauty of this land famous for the highest passes and roads of the world. Ladakh with its barren mountainscape has been one of the most inaccessible and forbidding regions of the world which has a compelling charm and beauty of its own.

MONASTERIES : Living Heritage of Buddhism The arid land of Ladakh is dotted with monasteries which are a silent witness to the unchanging beliefs of Buddhism. Fluttering prayer flags, scattered chortens holding the relies of Buddhist saints, mani walls carved with prayers ,whirring prayer wheels, the chant of the mantra 'OM Mani Padme Hum'(Praise to the Jewel in the Lotus Flower)- all form an integral part of Ladakh's landscape just as its soaring mountains do. This fusion of religion with the geography of its land reflects how important religion is for the people residing in almost inhospitable circumstances.
LAMAYURU is situated at about 125 km from Leh. It is believed to be the oldest monastic site in central Ladakh. This is also one of the famous and most spectacularly picturesque of the gompas.
ALCHI is also one of the oldest monasteries which has many Thangkas dating back to 11th or 12th century. Known for its artistic Tibetan paintings made on its walls, the Alchi monastery is one of the finest monasteries which needs about two hours to see the entire gompa.
HEMIS MONASTERY, 48 km from Leh,across the Indus river is Ladakh's largest and richest gompa which was built with the support of King Singge Namgyal in 1630. Richly adorned, the Hemis gompa is a huge, breathtaking building which is highly popular during the annual Hemis Tse-chu festival, held in June or July.
LIKIR MONASTERY is situated at 52 km from Leh. This gompa is under the direct charge of Ngari Rimpoche, whose present incarnation is the Dalai Lama's younger brother. With about 100 lamas (monks) on its rolls, this monastery is the site of Dosmoche festival (annual prayer festival) held in February
SHEY MONASTERY, located 15 km from Leh, is a little distinct in its history from the rest of the monasteries. Initially Shey was the royal residence of the Namgyals who lived here till 1500.
SPITUK MONASTERY, built in the 11th century, 8 km down the Indus river from Leh, is located atop a hill, overlooking the fields and houses of Spituk village.
THIKSEY MONASTERY, situated snugly on the banks of the Indus river, 20 km from Leh is amongst the most impressive gompas of central Ladakh. With ten temples and a nunnery within it, this picturesque Gompa is a twelve storyed building, built in the 15th century.
AHANTI STUPA is one of the most recent religious monuments of Ladakh. It is situated at a height in solitude, most apt for meditation. About 3 km from the main market, overlooking the splendid Leh valley, the Shanti Stupa, also called the Japanese gompa, was inaugurated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in August 1985.
ZANSKAR : A FORBIDDEN LAND Zanskar is also known as a land of religion where important gompas are Sani, Karsha, Stongday,Bardan , Dzonphul and Phugthal. Both phugthal and Dzonphul are amazing old gompas set in huge caves high up on a mountainside and are approachable only by foot . Zanskar is a favourite destination for trekkers. The gompas worth mentioning in the Kargil circuit are Mulbek, Shergol, Gyal and Rangdum.
NUBRA VALLEY : Zanskar is also known as a land of religion where important gompas are Sani, Karsha,Stongday, Bardan, Dzonphul and Phugthal. Both Phugthal and Dzonphul are amazing old gompas set in huge caves high up on a mountainside and are approachable only by foot. Zanskar is a favourite destination for trekkers.
