We are glad to invite you for this seasons grand tour to the Land of Dreams Leh-Ladakh from 24th June to 9th July 2014.
Leh-Leh was an important stopover on trade routes along the Indus Valley between Tibet to the east, Kashmir to the west and also between India and China for centuries. The main goods carried were salt, grain, pashm or wool, charas or cannabis resin from the Tarim Basin, Indigo, silk yarn and Banaras Brocade..Mountains dominate the landscape around the Leh as it is at an altitude of 3,500m. The principal access roads include the 434 km Srinagar-Leh highway which connects Leh with Srinagar and the 473 km Leh- Manali highway which connects Manali with Leh. Both roads are open only on a seasonal basis.Although the access roads from Srinagar and Manali are often blocked by snow in winter, the local roads in the Indus Valley usually remain open due to the low level of precipitation and snowfall.
Ladakh -"land of high passes" is a region of India in the state of Jammu and Kashmir that lies between the Kunlun mountain range in the north and the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetian descent.It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in Jammu and Kashmir and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet.
