Ladakh is also known as Land of High Passes, the Land of Gompa, the Land of Nomad, one of the most sought after destination, when it comes to reaping pleasure out of adventure activities and sports. Sited in the northernmost part of India, Ladakh is at a distance of some seven kilometers from the Indus River and its extensive valley. India is rich with places in the north that are copious with scenic beauty and ample scope for adventure and fun.

Proudly possessing high mountainous terrains that have altitudes ranging from 9,000 feet (2,750 m) at Kargil to 25,170 feet (7,672 m) at Saser Kangri in the Karakoram, Ladakh has India’s most fun-filled trekking routes. Additionally, the temperature in summers seldom exceed about 27°C in the shade, while in winter they may plunge to minus 20°C in Leh.

Apart from bone chilling temperatures and high mountainous terrains, Ladakh is also reckoned as a major Buddhist center since 3rd century AD. The eastern region of Ladakh has been under major influence of Buddhism while Islam has slowly developed in Ladakh's western regions owing to the infamous invasion of Ladakh by Tibet in the 8th century. In addition to this historical actuality, the troupes of gompas inhabiting here such as Shey, Alchi, Hemis and Lamayuru, have fascinated holy Buddhists and interested voyagers from all over the globe.
