Leh

        Visitor's from Abroad

 

Nestled in the Western Himalayas , Ladakh has always fascinated people. Ladakh popularly known as Hermit Kingdom ,Images of a stark and barren landscape juxtaposed alongside lush green fields, monasteries precariously perched on mountaintops, and an intriguing blend of cultures.

For centuries Ladakh remained closed to the outside world due to heavy snow fall  .

Ladakh is one of the only few places where one can experience Tibetan Buddhism being practiced in its original form.

Leh, the capital city of Ladakh, was once the central meeting-point for trade caravans from Central Asia and the plains of India .Ladakh has about 13 major Gompas (Monasteries) of which HEMIS is considered the Gompa of Gompas.

It is the most important monastery of Ladakh with a concealed entrance, a huge courtyard flanked by two big temples. In the month of June, the famous Hemis festival is held, when a large number of tourists visit it.
