Leh, Ladakh

“So remote that only your best friend or worst enemy will visit you”

Or so the saying goes! However we beg to differ, because the journey to Leh is half the fun. Surrounded on all sides by the Ladakh mountain ranges, the lunar landscape of Leh and entire state of Ladakh, will quite literally take your breath away, and at 11,482 feet, you’ll need at lest a day to acclimatize to the high altitude! As the gateway to the rest of Ladakh, you will witness Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs living side-by-side in this tiny mountainous city. The Tibetan Heritage Fund curate an excellent heritage walk through the Old City including Leh Palace and many of its hidden historic sites, whilst the Leh Heritage House hosts a rotating calendar of art exhibitions and guest speakers. Plus it’s one of the few spots you can get a good coffee in town.
