Travel story, the desert Valley of Ladakh (and around). Ladakh (capital : Leh town - 3505 meters) is a high altitude remote valley tucked away in the Indian Himalayan mountains. Only accessible by road for about 2 months of the year, Ladakh remains a world removed from the rest of the country. Tibetan buddhism is practiced by most Ladakhis, but in actual fact, this Mahayana buddhism was practiced in Ladakh and Kashmir long before the Tibetans themselves.
